It's been a hot topic for some time now, but now, the FDA has ruled the emergency contraception pill known as Plan B One-Step will be available over the counter to girls ages 15 and older.
Plan B One-Step is a morning after pill, that helps reduce the risk of pregnancy if taken 72 hours after unprotected sex.
To purchase it, you had to be 17 and ask for it from the pharmacist. But now, it will be coming out from behind the counter and on to the shelves. Those purchasing it, however, must show proof of age at the check out.
Parents here have mixed reaction to these changes.
"Being a mom myself, I don't really agree with it," said Danyele Litz. "A doctor's permission is always helpful because you'll know how it'll react with whatever you're on, and again, as a parent, you want to know everything your kid does."
"[Sometimes] They're scared, and I would hope this would give them the opportunity to take responsibility for the action they thought at the time didn't matter," said Shannon Johnson, a parent of a 13-year-old girl. "[It] Absolutely scares the daylights out of me, however, hopefully I've done my job and my husband has done his job, that she can come to be in that situation."
