Emergency Contraception

Teen Attitudes on Pregnancy & Emergency Contraception

The WV EC Initiative (a partnership between WV FREE and Advocates for Youth is based on the findings of targeted focus-group research. Focus groups were conducted in October and November, 2008 and examined the following:

  • current opinions about teen sexual activity
  • contraception usage and knowledge
  • EC marketing messages and visuals

Emergency Contraception Access in WV

WV FREE is on the cutting edge of emergency contraception research and access work.

In the fall of 2007, in partnership with ACLU-WV and the WV Foundation for Rape and Information Services, we completed our statewide EC Pharmacy Access project — we are the only state with an EC pharmacy survey of this scope and depth. Check out the results of the Pharmacy survey.

In the summer of 2006 WV FREE completed the research portion of our Emergency Contraception in the Emergency Room (‘EC in the ER’) project with the ACLU Clara Bell Duvall Reproductive Freedom Project and the WV Foundation for Rape and Information Services (FRIS). Check out the study here.

As of June 10, 2013, many emergency contraceptive methods are available over the counter to all Americans regardless of age. Consumers no longer have to present an ID to purchase emergency contraception. Despite these changes, WV FREE continues to fight to ensure that all West Virginians have access to the reproductive health care they need regardless of where they live or how much they make.
