I believe the ability to control your own fertility is a fundamental right. The decision to take the Plan B pill falls within this right.
Plan B is a form of emergency contraception that has proven to be safe and effective. However, the effectiveness of the pill drastically declines if a woman does not have prompt access to it. Limiting the distribution of Plan B in pharmacies trumps patients’ rights and increases the risk of unintended pregnancy.
How can legislators and pharmacists who are staunchly anti-choice eliminate access to a pill that reduces the need for abortion? Anti-choice hardliners and extremists are doing nothing to prevent unintended pregnancies and instead choose to further limit women’s reproductive rights.
