Morning-After Pill To Be Legalised And Sold Over Counter

Article Featured Image

It’s official! The morning-after pill will be licensed and sold at pharmacies over the counter. 

Yesterday’s protest seems to have sealed the deal: the morning-after pill will not require a doctor’s prescription, according to Times of Malta.

Medicines Authority chief Anthony Serracino Inglott was reported as saying: “We looked at all the recommendations made by the parliamentary committee but have decided that to ensure that there is efficacy, the contraceptive will be made available over-the-counter.”

The recommendations made after weeks of discussions by a joint parliamentary committee stipulated that the pill must be given against a doctor’s prescription if it is to be licensed.
