Can Plan B Help Reduce Teen Pregnancies?

In hopes to reduce teen pregnancy in the U.S., the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) announced in a statement that more doctors should write prescriptions for Plan B, a form of emergency contraception, for their patients younger than 17 or give them a supplemental dose just in case. Currently, women younger than 17 need a prescription and women 17 and older can purchase it over-the-counter.
