Study: Some teens denied legal access to Plan B

Dr. Tracey Wilkinson, a pediatrician at Boston Medical Center, said she sees teens all the time who ask her to fill their prescriptions for the emergency contraceptive Plan B. “Teens come to my clinic for Plan B because they couldn’t get access in a more straightforward way either over-the-counter or with a doctor’s prescription,’’ she told me.

Sometimes, they can’t get a pharmacist to fill it for them or they’re simply too embarrassed to ask.
