Students at the University of California Davis can now get Plan B emergency contraceptive pills from a vending machine on campus.
The machine was installed in early April after two years of lobbying by former student senator Parteek Singh.
“The more skeptical and negativity I got from other people like, ‘Oh it’s not gonna happen,’ kind of pushed me more,” Singh told KTXL. “I feel like every college should have this.”
While Singh and others are fans of the vending machine, one student was concerned about the implications.
“It is promoting like, ‘Oh hey, go and have unsafe sex because then you have a backup option and its gonna be cheaper than if you just wanna go to a drug store,” student Jordan Herrera told KTXL.
Student KC Cui disagreed, adding, “It’s a great thing for women.”
