Bring Back AfterPill to Amazon.com
affordable, accessible emergency contraception is a major goal of the women’s
health advocacy community in the United States.
New AfterPill® 1.5 mg levenorgestrel tablet was launched this summer to meet
that goal by reducing the price of EC to $20 (from $40 to $50 at retail) and to
make EC more available via online access.
To ensure widespread access, AfterPill® has been available online at both www.AfterPill.com and at the world’s largest online retailer, www.amazon.com.
However, on October 31st, Amazon abruptly stopped selling the more affordable AfterPill® and only offers the premium-priced Plan B One-Step®. The executives at Amazon have not provided a legitimate reason as to why they took this action, so we are asking those in the women’s health advocacy and contraception community to stand with us and ask Amazon.com to return the availability of AfterPill, continuing the mission of making more affordable emergency contraception more accessible.
If you believe that Amazon.com should make AfterPill available again as a more affordable option, please take a moment to e-sign this petition that we’ll be submitting to the site. We, again, thank you for your continued support of our efforts to bring more affordable emergency contraception to women in the U.S.
