Letter to the editor: emergency contraception on campus

To whom it may concern:

Providing emergency contraception in vending machines is an innovative way to ensure easy

access to basic, essential health care.

There are several reasons to dispense emergency contraception, sometimes called ‘the

morning after pill’, from vending machines on our campus. It provides anonymity and privacy,

24/7 availability, and the convenience of being located on campus. Like other medicine on the

shelf in a pharmacy, emergency contraception is available without a prescription.

Availability of emergency contraception in vending machines makes it easier for students to get

this birth control when they need it – and other schools in New York and across the country are

already doing this.

I believe that emergency contraception should be made available in vending machines on our

campus and hope that we can make this a reality in the near future.
