Survey Finds Many NC Pharmacies Don't Sell Emergency Contraception

It's --not-- so easy to find Plan B in North Carolina. The emergency contraceptive known as the "morning-after pill" has been available over the counter since August.

But a survey by an abortion rights group says it isn't carried in about 40 percent of North Carolina pharmacies.

N-A-R-A-L Pro-Choice North Carolina says Plan B can help prevent
unintended pregnancies for women who have been sexually assaulted.

Critics say Plan B encourages promiscuity and unprotected sex, and some pharmacists have refused to sell Plan B on moral and religious grounds.
