Plan B Now Over The Counter

Plan B, the morning after pill, is now available over the counter.

From the Salt Lake Tribune:
Feds open door to controversial Plan B

Women who are worried about getting pregnant will soon be able to buy emergency contraception without a prescription.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the drug, called Plan B, for over-the-counter use on Thursday, although women still will have to ask a pharmacy for it and the change is not expected to occur until the end of the year. The move came after three years of controversy over manufacturer Barr Labs’ application.
