It’s about time!!! Women are now able to purchase over-the-counter birth control from the pharmacy without a doctor’s visit!!
In Oregon and very soon California are closer to getting their birth control over the counter, instead of having to make a doctor’s appointment to get a prescription at their local pharmacy!
Currently a woman who is 18 years or older can go into a Oregon pharmacy and fill out a special form and, if everything is ok, the can get up to a year’s worth of the pill. A pharmacist can pass on allowing the women to get the supply if they have religious issues with it, but then they need to be passed onto someone else.
Men have always had the condom available to them and it is about time that women be in control of their own bodies and choices!
