there continues to be a crisis in our country with unintended pregnancy. health education and abstinence based programs are beneficial but more is needed. the potential for safely preventing unintended pregnancies in many women without adversly affecting their health (physical) deserves close attention and in my opinion over the counter sales would be warranted. i have personally seen patients in my practice who would have benefitted from the availability of this product over the counter. thanks tommy cobb md starkville mississippi
