Emergency Contraception in California

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, including 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.
