As a health professional in the perinatal field, I see the continuing problems cause by unwanted pregnancy, teen pregnancy, child abuse and neglect. I feel thatthe availability of OTC emergency contraception could make a significant difference in these problems which have long ranging and pervasive effects in our society. It is not a matter of morality but of realistic and foresighted decision making on the part of the FDA.
