Signs of improvement on EC access?

Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich wants every pharmacy in the state to post a sign that details what options customers have in buying contraceptives.

The new signs would notify customers that pharmacies must provide an alternative drug if they are out of stock or allow the prescription to be filled at a different pharmacy. The signs also will list a toll-free [800-280-4149] pharmacy hot line [and website] for complaints.

Dreamy! Next step? Let’s require hospitals to post similar signs informing rape victims they have a right to EC.
