Every woman should have the ability to choose whether or not to surrender her body to the creation of another life. The morning after pill is really no different than the birth control pill, so I don't understand what the problem is with making it widely available. Since it takes my doctor a full month before she can see me, it doesn't make any sense for the morning after pill to be by prescription, because by the time I got the prescription, it would be too late. With all the complaining about unwed mothers and poor people having kids, you'd think folks would be happy to help the poor out by giving them another way to avoid breeding.
