GENERAL
Emergency contraception is mopst effective when used within 24 hours. There may not be enough time to schedule a doctor's visit and then go to the pharmacy. I support OTC emergency contraception.

I oppose the constant delays in permitting emergency contraception to be sold OTC. A woman who needs EC needs it fast.
