Plan B Vending Machine

The push for campus vending machines to dispense the pregnancy-preventing medication has grown since the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade.

While emergency contraception — which can be used after unprotected sex to prevent pregnancy — is available without a prescription, it’s often locked up or must be specifically requested at a pharmacy counter.

Some pharmacies don’t have the medication in stock, and finding a pharmacy that does can require driving miles away — another barrier for students without cars.

While students have led most efforts, they’re now finding additional support from public officials.
