fda STILL REQUIRES ID FOR BUYING EC
The NWHN is disappointed that our government is still letting politics trump science. The announcement that people buying EC will still need proof of age means that the medically unjustified barriers remain in place, even though the product can be sold without prescription to women 15 and older and can be placed on store shelves, instead of behind the counter. Medical experts and the FDA’s own scientists agree with the NWHN that women of all ages can use over-the-counter emergency contraception (EC) safely.
