Emergency Contraceptive Morning After Pill Still Available
Emergency contraceptive, also known as the "morning after pill," has been used by millions of women to prevent unintended pregnancy before it happens.
Women across the country are faced with a greater sense of urgency to be prepared, as pending Supreme Court decisions and state laws threaten reproductive rights.
Emergency Contraceptive is Legal in All 50 States
Emergency contraceptive, also known as the "Plan B pill" or "morning after pill," can prevent pregnancy if taken as soon as possible (up to 72 hours) after unprotected sex.
While some states allow pharmacists to refuse to sell the morning after pill to people who are 17 years old or younger, a 2006 court ruling coupled with an FDA policy guarantees anyone the right to buy over the counter emergency contraceptives. This means that someone who needs the morning after pill can buy plan B online.

Supreme Court Draft Opinion Suggests Roe v. Wade Overturned, Threatening Reproductive Rights
A leaked draft of a Supreme Court opinion by Justice Samuel Alito would, if finalized, reverse the legal precedent set by Roe v. Wade.
Roe v. Wade refers to the 1973 Supreme Court case that solidifies abortion as a constitutionally protected right. In brief, Roe v. Wade established that states cannot prohibit abortions before a fetus is viable. This ensured that women in the US have the legal right to an abortion up to 22 - 24 weeks into pregnancy.
If finalized, Supreme Court Justice Alito's draft opinion would allow states to make their own abortion laws, effectively throwing out abortion rights established in Roe v. Wade.
If the Supreme Court decision is consistent with the leaked draft opinion, several states would immediately outlaw abortions due to abortion laws that were in effect prior to Roe v. Wade. Additionally, several states have attempted restrictive abortion laws that could take effect if Roe v. Wade is no longer federally applicable.
This means that women in Texas, Alabama and many more states may have no legal options but to give birth after an unintended pregnancy. This makes it urgent to have options to prevent pregnancy.
