Plan B

Plan B is now being put into a vending machine in the USA on a college campus.

The vending machine is cheap and accessible only to students and staff of Shippensburg University, Pennsylvania, and is cheaper than on pharmacies. This makes the morning after pill readily available to all students!!!

Plan B is a pill taken after having unprotected sex (whether a condom broke, was never used, or the regular birth control pill was forgotten) and stops the egg from planting itself in the wall of the uterus. It can be taken up to 72 hours after, but is most effective when taken immediately.

What do you think about making Plan B so available?

I feel that this may give some people an excuse not to use condoms or other preventative measures. STIs are higher among college and university students and I would hate to see that continue or increase...
