Contraception - Chemical Methods / Hormonal Contraception / Emergency / Morning After Pill

EC / Morning After Pill NOT Required by HHS to be Distributed in States (2004)

The entire Alabama Congressional Delegation contacted AL Department of Public Health Director Dr. Donald Williamson in 2004, urging him to stop dispensing Emergency Contraception (also called Plan B, or the Morning After Pill) in county health departments.

Dr. Williamson responded that he was required by the federal government to do so.

The AL Delegation then contacted Secretary Tommy Thompson, and Dr. Williamson contacted Dr. Alma Golden, at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to verify this.

Here is the letter of the AL Delegation back to Dr. Williamson.
