I can't remember if I posted this before:
In October 2006, Walgreens changed its corporate policy to ensure that women have access to emergency contraception. Walgreens’ policy states that customers will receive emergency contraception in-store, without discrimination, delay, or judgment and that the product will be stocked in every store in which it is requested by one or more customers. Even better, Walgreens is shipping EC to each and every one of its stores in the nation. Walgreens’ new policy gets a PPFA thumbs-up.

What is "emergency" contraception? Are we talking about the "morning-after pill"?

Exactly. Sold under the name "Plan B."

I see. Do they also provide ongoing contraception, ie, the non-emergency stuff? Have they always provided that?

As far as I know.

The PPFA thumbs up is only for pharmacies that provide regular contraceptive methods as well, as far as I can tell.
