GENERAL
Since the FDA's expert advisory panel recommended with a 23-4 vote that emergency contraception be made available over the counter without prescription almost two years ago, any policy that interferes with implementing this recommendation should be avoided. Please make it easier for women who have been raped and abused to obtain access to emergency contraception.
