Legislation seeks greater EC awareness

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

Sen. Patty Murray and Rep. Louise Slaughter introduce the Emergency Contraception Education Act of 2010, authorizing a public education campaign through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to increase EC awareness among women and health care providers. "We must educate women about their options so they can make well-informed choices about their reproductive health," said Slaughter, D-N.Y., adding studies show one-third of women are unaware of EC drugs, such as the nonprescription levonorgestrel products Plan B One-Step and Next Choice. Murray, D-Wash., and Slaughter introduced 1S. 3504 and H.R. 5561 June 17, and have offered similar legislation in previous sessions of Congress (2"The Tan Sheet" Oct. 1, 2007, In Brief)
