A new controversial vending machine has popped up on the campus of Shippensburg University in central Pennsylvania. This vending machine doesn’t house your ordinary snacks. Students can now get the “morning-after” pill for a mere $25 from the new vending machine installed at the request of the student government.
The machine itself is located at the Etter Health Center. In addition to the Plan B One Step emergency contraceptives they also provide condoms, decongestants and pregnancy tests.
Normally the pill is only allowed to be taken by those over the age of 17. The school has already checked its records and verified that all the students are at least 17.
For those that are concerned with what seems to be easy access to the pill, administrators insist that the machine is located in a private section of the health center and only students are allowed inside once they check in.
