Morning after pill without a prescription?
Plan B, which is used to prevent pregnancies, can now be bought from a pharmacy. But women must have a prescription or prove that they are at least 17 years-old. Anyone under age 17 must have a prescription.
The request has been endorsed by some doctors, health advocates and members of Congress, but also has critics.
The FDA has until Wednesday to respond to the request, according to the Post article.
What do you think? Should Plan B be sold over-the-counter? Let us know.
Plan B contains a high dose of a hormone found in birth control pills and can lower the risk of pregnancy by up to 89 percent if taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex.
