In response to the overturning of Roe v. Wade, CVS Pharmacy decided to put a cap on how many Plan B pills a customer could buy, but a day later, they reversed their decision.
The Supreme Court has the world bewildered by its ruling.
On Tuesday (June 28), CVS limited the number of Plan B pills a customer could buy, on a single trip to the store, to three, fearing supply issues after the Roe v. Wade ruling.
Cooler heads prevailed, and on Wednesday (June 29) CVS says purchases of things like Plan B are normal, and the limit should be removed by the end of the day.
According to Mayo Clinic, the morning-after pill is a type of emergency birth control (contraception).
Emergency contraception is used to prevent pregnancy for women who’ve had unprotected sex or whose birth control method has failed.
The morning-after pill is intended for backup contraception only, not as a primary method of birth control.
Morning-after pills contain either levonorgestrel (Plan B One-Step) or ulipristal acetate (ella).
Levonorgestrel is available over-the-counter without a prescription; ulipristal acetate is available only with a prescription.
It is important to understand that the morning-after pill (Plan B) will not terminate or end a pregnancy that has been implanted.
