Amazon caps purchase on emergency contraceptive pills

Emergency contraceptive pill purchases are temporarily limited to three units per week, according to Inc., the business said on Tuesday.

The action was taken a few days after the U.S. Supreme Court reversed the important Roe v. Wade decision from 1973, which upheld women’s constitutional right to an abortion.

Women in the nation who find themselves pregnant unnecessarily may now have to choose between leaving the country for a state where the operation is still permitted and legal, purchasing abortion pills online, or getting an abortion that might be deadly.

The decision also affected the market for Plan B, an over-the-counter emergency contraceptive tablet that is used within days after sexual activity.

While Walgreens Boots Alliance stated it currently has no purchase limit in place for Plan B tablets, pharmacy chain CVS Health Corp announced it was introducing a temporary purchase limit of three on emergency contraceptive pills Plan B and Aftera.
