Plan B: FDA lowers the age for using contraceptive pills

Finally a good news for the younger women who fears becoming a mother after accidental pregnancy caused by casual physical relationship.

US Food and Drug Administration said Tuesday that it would make the most widely known morning-after pill available without a prescription to girls and women ages 15 and older, and also make the pill available on drugstore shelves, instead of keeping it locked up behind pharmacy counters.

Until this decision the pill, Plan B One-Step, which is used after sexual intercourse to help prevent pregnancy, was available without a prescription only for ages 17 and older. In the world many young woman die while trying to undergo abortion. Hopefully this step will help decreasing the number of such unfortunate things.
