Emergency Contraception in California – Survey Report
As the FDA continues to deliberate about whether emergency contraception will be made available “over-the-counter” without a prescription, a new Kaiser Family Foundation survey examines Californian's awareness of and experiences with emergency contraception, inlcuding findings on the state's “pharmacy access ” program. California's “pharmacy access” program permits women to receive emergency contraception from participating pharmacists directly without contacting a physician , while the “over-the-counter” option the FDA is considering would allow people to obtain emergency contraception off-the-shelves at participating retailers without pharmacist consultation.
