Women appear to have better access!

A new report shows that sales of the emergency contraception Plan B have doubled since the FDA approved the drug for over the counter use last year.

I hope this finally means that women who need this product are finally able to have easier access to it. I know that there are still hurdles.

We need to make sure that pharmacies will stock the drug and give it to customers without judgement or delay.

We need to make sure that women are aware that it is available to them over the counter.

We need to make sure that rape victims are offered EC in hospital emergency rooms.

We still need to work on the misconception about what emergency contraception is (no, it isn't an abortion pill).

Oh, and yea...we still need to get over the counter access to minors...
