On Morning After Pill, New Yorkers Are Mixed About Access

Tuesday, June 11, 2013

New Yorkers have mixed reactions to the Obama administration's decision to will reverse course and comply with a New York judge's order to allow girls of any age to buy emergency contraception without prescriptions.

Laura Cameron, 30, from Bushwick, Brooklyn, said she believes any access young girls can have to the morning after pill is a good thing.

"I think the pill is more humane than an abortion, especially when they're that young and they're going to do possibly more horrible things to their bodies," she said.

But Tara Lucy, 20, from Staten Island said young girls should be required to get a guardian's signature before taking Plan-B: "You don't want a bunch of kids eating Plan-B pills for fun," she said.
