The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists says if contraceptive pills were available without a prescription, there would be fewer unwanted pregnancies.
The push for over-the-counter birth control is nothing new, but the group says what's different now is the large body of evidence that shows "The Pill" is effective and safe.
The group says more women would use it if they had easier access.
The F-D-A says it would be willing to met with any pharmaceutical company interesting in selling contraceptives over the counter.
The company would have to run studies to prove that the right people would buy the medication -- for example, women who aren't at risk for blot clots or stroke.
