Plan B OTC

If it's so safe, why are lower doses of birth control pills by prescription only? Will the pharmacist watch the woman take the medications? How will he know that the woman won't walk out of the store and hand the medication to a juvenile who really should be under a doctor's care before taking drugs? This sounds like a political move more than a medical one me.

The dosages have to do with how the pills work, and the whole point of making this plan B pill available without a prescription is due to the 3 day time constraint. Many, if not most, people can't get a prescription that quickly.

Politics could be involved, but I don't think these are the flags for which we should be watching.
