Phalligator has a great post about a new campaign from Planned Parenthood called Pill Patrol. This campaign turns each and everyone one of us into secret agents for Emergency Contraception. In November 2006, the FDA started allowing Emergency Contraception (or, the Morning After Pill) to be sold in Pharmacies to anyone over the age of 18 without a prescription. This great news but it doesn't mean anything if pharmacies aren't carrying the medication or aren't carrying enough of it.Members of the Pill Patrol receive a toolkit from Planned Parenthood that shows them how to ask their local Costco, Target, Wal-Mart and Oscos if they carry EC and how much it costs. Why those four? They are four major pharmacy chains that have not signed on to Planned Parenthood's pharmacy policy guaranteeing women access to EC. Each member will then report back to Planned Parenthood about their experiences in trying to get this essential medication. Eventually, Planned Parenthood will be able to contact pharmacies that don't carry EC or that are unfriendly to people trying to obtain it and help them see the light.I would especially encourage people who live in smaller towns and all men to join in this effort. If there's only one pharmacy in someone's town, then it had better carry EC and some pharmacists have been known for giving men who are trying to obtain the medication for their partners/friends/family a very hard time.So go out there are start investigating!
