Birth Control Bill Up for House Vote

Legislation making it easier to obtain birth control prescriptions is headed for a vote in the Tennessee House. The measure would allow women aged 18 and over to directly access contraceptives from their pharmacist, avoiding a visit to the doctor’s office. The bill would require pharmacists to have an agreement with a cooperating physician in order to dispense birth control. Proponents say it is a cost saver, and would help prevent poorly timed or unwanted pregnancies. The Senate has already approved the legislation.
