|2001P-0075 - Switch Status of Emergency Contraceptives from Rx to OTC|

| I support continued prescription status for emergency contraception. OTC status would place increased pressure on teenage girls to be sexually active. An increase in sexually transmitted disease and psychological/self-esteem problems would follow.
Please continue prescription status.
