Giving teens more information about their options to prevent unintended pregnancy, including emergency contraception, is as important as improving access to it. (Galanos, 2009). Thought the debate rages on, it is clear that the use of an emergency contraceptive can be beneficial in most cases. Teens knowing their options can lower their chances for an unwanted pregnancy, along with a decrease of unsafe abortions, which is what both sides of the argument desire most. Making emergency contraceptives available without a prescription can have a significant impact on teen pregnancies.
