I believe that emergency contraception should be available for all women, without a prescription. Do not let politics interfere with our health. It is imperitive that emergency contraception be available to all women, including those who cannot afford to see a doctor to get a prescription. Two years ago, the FDA's expert advisory panel recommended the emergency contraception be made available. Why, two years later, has this not been done? One person's belief that the results of a broken condom must result in a birth does not justify another person being forced to endure a pregnacy and birth against her will. Keep religion out of politics, and politics out of an individual's health decisions.
