NJ Morning Show – NJ Birth Control Policy


Governor Murphy signed a new policy that allows people to receive birth control without a prescription this week. Murphy referred to the new law as “an important step forward in our efforts to expand access to reproductive health care.”

But this new policy does not say where women can purchase their birth control. The Murphy Administration did not release a list of participating pharmacies, and only five pharmacists throughout the state declared that they have the proper training to enact the policy. The Division of Consumer Affairs will keep New Jerseyans in the loop, providing a list of pharmacy locations when they are “available.”

New Jersey is now 1 of 29 states that allow pharmacists to provide people contraceptives without a prescription, as determined by the Guttmacher Institute.
