Pharmacy access to contraception in Massachusetts

Key Points

Many women have limited access to contraception
Nearly half of pregnancies in Massachusetts are unplanned
Taxpayers have spent over $350 million to cover the medical costs associated with unplanned pregnancy
Allowing pharmacy access has no adverse fiscal impact on the Board of Pharmacy or the state
Massachusetts should pass MA SD 102 to expand pharmacists’ scope-of-practice and give women more family planning options
