November 29, 2016 (SPUC) — The British Pregnancy Advisory Service has called for the morning after pill to be sold in supermarkets alongside aspirin, to avoid “unnecessary and embarrassing” conversations with pharmacists.

“Emergency contraception” was made available at pharmacies in 2001 for women to buy after a consultation with a pharmacist.

However, family groups and pharmacists have criticised BPAS' idea. Norman Wells, from the Family Education Trust, said: “With no questions asked about previous medical history or previous use of the drug, there is a very real danger that it could be misused or overused.

“Dispensing with the requirement of a consultation with the pharmacist would make it easier than ever for the abusers of vulnerable girls and young women to force their victims to purchase the drug – or even to buy it for them – as a way of trying to conceal their crime.”

A Department of Health spokesman said that there are no plans to change the system.
