I support the availability of birth control methods for women, but I have my doubts about this. The morning after pills are only supposed to be used in an emergency situation, and I am worried that women will start taking these pills the same way we take Advil or Tylenol. The hormonal dosage is several times higher than that of a normal birth control pill, and if taken too often, could end up causing a hormonal imbalance, at a minimum.

SHIPPENSBURG, Pa. (AP) — The U.S. Food and Drug Administration won’t take any regulatory action over a vending machine at a Pennsylvania college that dispenses so-called “morning-after” birth control pills.

FDA spokeswoman Erica Jefferson says in a statement Friday that they looked at publicly available information about the Shippensburg University vending program, spoke with university and campus health officials, and decided not to take any regulatory actions.

The pill is available for $25 at a health center vending machine that’s accessible to students and university employees. That raised questions about how accessible emergency contraception should be.

The vending machine at the school, which has about 8,300 students and is 40 miles southwest of Harrisburg, provides the Plan B One Step emergency contraceptive along with condoms, decongestants and pregnancy tests.
