The morning-after pill will be on sale in most pharmacies and grocery stores starting August 1 to anyone who wants it.

Plan B pills will be on shelves instead of behind the counter.

For the first time the emergency contraception will also be available to women under 17 without a prescription.

This marks the end of a long legal battle to make it more easily available.
