If passed, SB 154 would make oral contraceptives available without a prescription.

According to the bill, pharmacies, including mail-order pharmacies, could dispense oral contraceptives "to persons 18 years of age or older without a prescription after an initial consultation with a licensed or certified health care provider."

Should NH allow pharmacists to prescribe birth control?

Oregon recently put into effect a new law which allows pharmacists to prescribe birth control after completing a training course. Pharmacists may prescribe oral contraceptives or other hormonal contraceptives themselves, or may refer a patient to a physician in more complicated cases.

The law applies to women over the age of 18 and those under 18 who have evidence of a previous prescription from a physician.
