I strongly urge the FDA to approve the purchase of emergency contraception as an over-the-counter product. I know the impediments that girls experience to get a prescription from a clinic within 3-5 days of unprotected sex. It will not happen! Let's avoid unwanted pregnancies, and bring this country's reproductive rights on par with Europe's. Thank you, Elizabeth Quint, FNP
