GENERAL
Please stop the constant delays in permitting EC to be sold over the counter without a prescription. Forcing women to get a prescription before they can obtain Plan B is an unwise and unnecessary burden on all women, especially poor women who may not have access to a physician. Moreover, requiring a physician's prescription increases the total cost of EC dramatically.
