GENERAL
I am strongly opposed to over-the-counter sale of this drug. It would involve health risks and a serious invasion of family privacy. I also note that, although 'Plan B' commonly is described as a contraceptive, its action is abortifacient in some circumstances. That is another compelling reason not to allow its over-the-counter sale.
