I'm kinda on the side of it being a script required medication though. As someone mentioned before people abuse it and use it as contraception. It's meant for emergencies only and taking it so regularly can't be good for you. What if taking it so regularly ruins your fertility for the future?

Morning After Pill $
@~Marigold~ I wonder about the impact of the cost too - to, say, a 15 year old girl, $30 is a lot of money. Some days I wouldn't be able to scrape that together either.
ETA I don't even know if I have a problem if people abuse it. I'm not sure how prevalent it actually is, and I suspect the 'abusers' do so anyway even with the cost. But if it makes it more accessible to all I think it's ok to cop that anyway.

Morning After Pill $
I paid $35 for it back in 2004 and we had to scrape together that ( terrible times)
I think it should be free for any women as long as they aren't abusing it (as in using to often) so maybe a data base set up

No, no info it was just a thought I had. I dunno why they wouldn't just buy condoms though, aren't they like $7? If you use the MAP multiple times a month it's a large cost and an unneeded tablet. I can understand once in a blue moon for something unplanned, but too many times can't be good.

I pay for my Dd 18 's pill but soon she moves out to uni and I know funds will be tight. I really do think all contraception should be free .. I feel for ppl who can't afford it ...

you can (or used to be able to) get the generic pill brands that were $3 (this is back in the day, I'm sure prices have kept up with inflation lol). that price was for the more generic ones I think and didn't apply to all brands, but it was still very affordable, even for students.

Definitely an issue.
I paid $26 about 10 years ago. My partner and I were both high school students, and had to borrow the money from a friend. I think at the time it was free from a sexual health clinic or a hospital.
I definitely think it ought to be free. If somebody's going to use that as their main form of contraception, then there are probably greater things to worry about than how the MAP will affect them long-term.
