Plan B One-Step, an emergency contraceptive, elicits constant debate and conflicting opinions.

Now, adding to the fire, the removal of a label found on the box’s right hand corner that currently reads “Prescription only if you are under the age of 17,” has many talking.

The Obama administration switched its tune and recently announced all restrictions will be removed on the morning after pill.

This sudden alteration has brought on varying opinions from the public and parents everywhere.
