Just Another Consumer Product

Shippensburg University sells the “morning-after pill” in vending machines, right beside nasal decongestants. Claire Gillen of The College Fix has the story:

A controversial vending machine will remain—at least for the present—at Shippensburg University. The Pennsylvania school recently drew national attention for offering the emergency contraceptive Plan B through a vending machine. …

Plan B is available for $25 per dose, and university officials say that the university does not profit from sales.  The vending machine also dispenses condoms, pregnancy tests, and nasal decongestants.
