This report comes from the Memphis area ABC affiliate:
Emergency Contraception for Free
Memphis Regional Planned Parenthood is joining its sister affiliates across the country to offer free emergency contraception on Wednesday, December 6, 2006. ...
The Memphis Regional Planned Parenthood's health center is located at 1407 Union Avenue. It will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on December 6th. No appointment is necessary.
I couldn't find any more info about the giveaway in Tennessee, not even on Planned Parenthood sites. But there are quite a few stories about the free Plan B day (December 6) in other states. The Des Moines Register reports that a pack of Plan B "will be available free to anyone 18 or older at each of Planned Parenthood's 15 Iowa medical centers." Women under 18 will also be able to receive the free birth control "after fill[ing] out paperwork at a clinic and participat[ing] in a counseling session with medical staff
Men are also eligible.
A two-pill pack usually retails for about $42.
You should probably call your local Planned Parenthood to confirm. (I'll try to call the local center on Monday.) You can find the contact info for your local Planned Parenthood Center here. Or call toll free: 1-800-230-PLAN.
Tell all your friends!!!
