New Hampshire Progressing on Access to Birth Control

New Hampshire seems to be taking steps in the right direction on womens health. A commission appointed by the state legislature voted unanimously last week to endorse the idea to allow pharmacists to dispense birth control. The law would limit the types of birth control to those that are self administered.

The bill would also restrict dispensing to women over the age of 18.  Kudos to Bedford Rep Andy Sandborn for sponsoring this bill.
