Plan B should be available without a prescription. This would provide women early acces, since there is a time limit when it will be effective. Many women are raped, or use birth control that is defective (condom breakage). Plan B will prevent unintended pregnancies, and has been found to be very safe. By easy access to Plan B, there will be a great reduction of unwanted pregnacies and abortions. Thank you.
