What do you think about pharmacists legally being able to dispense oral contraceptives without a doctor prescription?

Yikes! Wouldn't that pose a medical risk to the patient without knowing their medical history of what they used in the past and what, if any, problems they encountered?

I'm not sure. While I am happy that BC will be easier to get that might not be a good thing. I am happy that they are going to have a health screening. Think it's weird that a pharmacist will be assuming a medical physicians role. As you and I both know there are a lot of side effects and sometimes a period of adjustment during the BC process. Should a pharmacist be monitoring that? My concern is the safety of this dispensing process. I do not have a problem with ladies having accessible BC, just want it done safely.

BC should specify oral contraceptive. Sorry, I've gotten used to calling the pill BC.

Oh! Nope, I don't like that! Birth control has soooooo many terrible side effects, that I can't even imagine it not being prescribed and monitored by a physician.
