What is the difference between a vending machine and an automated self-checkout machine? This is up for debate at the University of Shippensburg in Pennsylvania. Some people have become outraged because the University offers a vending machine that sells, ‘the morning after pill,’ condoms, and nasal decongestants.
The machine has been in place for two years, but has not received attention until recent inquires sent to the Food and Drug Administration. The vending machine was put in place because of a survey taken on campus a few years ago.
85% of students supported making Plan B available on campus. The unanimous decision made Plan B available ever since. However, this is the only place Plan B is so readily available.
Throughout the rest of the nation Plan B can only be purchased behind the counter form a pharmacist. This exception has enraged some religious groups that view the plan B, ‘morning after pill’ as an abortion drug.
