Aloha Friday – Morning-after Pill Available from Vending Machine

Aloha FridayWelcome to this weeks edition of Aloha Friday! According to Kailani over at An Island Life In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that they take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So Kailani decided to take it easy on posting and we did too. Simply answer my question and feel free to ask your own question on your blog.

Shippensburg University in Pennsylvania has been in the news a lot lately. Students can obtain the “morning-after” pill from a vending machine at the campus health center. The decision to install the machine, came after a survey found that 85 percent of their students supported the idea.

Note: The pill is currently available without a prescription to anyone 17 or older.

What do you think? Should morning-after pills be sold in college vending machines?

  1. I’m not sure how I feel about it – it’s kinda scary to think college kids would be less concerned about unprotected sex if they have that option readily available to them.

  2. I strongly disagree to this idea! It was supported by the students themselves, and they are not really for that I think.

  3. Not for this at all. It’s ridiculous!!
    Here’s My Question

  4. I worry about it getting into malicious hands.

    Have a great weekend!

  5. I hate to stick my neck out but personally, I feel woman have the right to decide what goes on with their own body so if a morning after pill makes that more convenient, what difference does it make if she buys it at the drug store or gets it at the University? If they can dispense condoms in washrooms I don’t see why the pills are such a big deal.

  6. I don’t agree with making this available in a vending machine at any school/college.

    Happy Weekend!

  7. Nope that’s a touchy subject so I’m sorry I’ll plead the fifth on this one because sometimes I think yes and sometimes I think no, so yep pleading the fifth. Have a good weekend.

    NO! I feel like thats giving them an excuse not to be responsible. Theyre is sooo much more problems to think about than just getting pregnant when having sex. I think its ridiculous.
