As a nurse practitioner, I have cared for numerous women who have needed Plan B. I have never seen any adverse effects; this is supported by both research and clinical practice.
I urge you to make Plan B available over the counter to women. This drug is a vital tool to provide backup contraception for those women whose primary contraception fails.
