Provide Plan B to Students on Campus!
This petition had 72 supporters
Imagine this: you just had unprotected sex and worry you might become pregnant. Emergency contraception, like Plan B, can prevent unintended pregnancy if taken within 72 hours and doesn't require a prescription or visit to a healthcare clinic.
But, the closest pharmacy is in Abingdon, Virginia... There is no public transportation available from campus, and you don't have a car. What will you do?
"As a student of Emory & Henry College, I support every student's right to take control over their reproductive healthcare and prevent an unintended pregnancy. I ask Student Health Services to carry Plan B or its generic forms, so all students can make the best decisions for themselves and their future without facing barriers to accessing this important reproductive healthcare resource."
Facts on Emergency Contraception
- Plan B is an emergency contraceptive that can be used to prevent pregnancy after other birth control methods fail or unprotected sex.
- When taken in the first 72 hours after sex, Plan B One-Step can reduce the risk of pregnancy by up to 98%.
- When taken in the first 24 hours, it can reduce the risk of pregnancy by up to 95%.
- Plan B is not the same as an abortion pill. Plan B delays ovulation, which can prevent the fertilization of an egg and sperm.
