More info on British experience with OTC EC

More on the lack of effect on the abortion rates in the UK after emergency contraception went over the counter in that nation. (And a rare chance to post the word, “whilst.”)

From the responses (reader’s letters) to that British Medical Journal Article posted earlier:

Whilst Marston et al make interesting observations , it only comments in passing on the failure of OTC emergency contraception to reduce unwanted pregnancy. OTC emergency contraception was introduced to try and reduce unwanted pregnancies by improving access. However the latest abortion statistics from the DoH sadly show a further increase in abortions for 2004 (up to 184,000), and in this respect the introduction of OTC emergency contraception can be said to have failed in its purpose.
