Plan B contraception is far too complicated to be sold OTC. It is not currently possible to ensure that girls under the age of 16 do not have access to Plan B. At a time when the FDA is facing increasing scrutiny regarding the public health safety of their decisions, it is imperative that the FDA NOT allow the sale of Plan B contraception OTC.
