Is there a plan to take away Plan B?

Plan B — sometimes called the morning-after pill or emergency contraception —isn’t immediately affected by the state’s trigger law.

It’s used after unprotected sex or if birth control fails. Plan B keeps a woman from releasing an egg, keeps an egg from being fertilized or keeps a fertilized egg from implanting in the uterus.

Emergency contraception is still available at pharmacies in Missouri. You may have heard that Saint Luke’s Hospital group briefly stopped providing Plan B due to potential legal risk. The hospital system later reversed its decision.
