Plan B available, but still not easy to get

This is an interesting story about how difficult it was for a woman to obtain Plan B from Walgreen’s, over on the Consumerist.  Apparently the folks at her local Walgreen’s in Oxford, MS, tried to insist that she wait for one hour before getting the Plan B, as well as giving her literature on adoption, as well as just giving her a hard time and writing down her drivers’ license number.  I’m curious: has anyone else had difficulty in obtaining Plan B?  It seems like there’s a lot of confusion about it, especially in terms of the fact that it’s actually BIRTH CONTROL and not an abortion.

    I haven’t had any difficulty obtaining Plan B, I bought it over the counter once and it took all of 30 seconds. A lot of people think it’s like an abortion, I think there needs to be more publicity about it – how it works, etc. If you are already pregnant, Plan B won’t do anything. If you aren’t yet, it can prevent it from happening.
