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.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.
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.
