You knew it would come to this...

So said the comment on the email sent to me with this story...

Pennsylvania University Sells Morning After Pill In Vending Machine

Talk about a sign of the times. Shippensburg University, in Pennsylvania is now dispensing the morning after pill from a vending machine. The school official says it is for "privacy" and that they dispense between 350 - 400 doses a year.

From another news station:
Vending machines at one Pennsylvania University doesn't just dispense soda and snacks -- it sells the morning-after pill.

At Shippensburg University, getting access to Plan B, the emergency contraception pill is as easy as getting a soda. Students can now buy the pill at a vending machine on campus.

"We had some conversations with them and did a survey of the student body and we got an 85 percent response rate that the students supported Plan B in the House Center," said Dr. Roger Serr, Vice president of Student Affairs at Shippensburg.

The university does not profit from the sales. It pays $25 for one dose and that's exactly what the student has to pay.
What is wrong with doing this? Well, consider this - sperm can reach a women's egg within 30 minutes. This means the drug does not work as a contraceptive, but as an abortion drug. It kills a life after conception takes place in the vast majority of cases.
