J Am Pharm Assoc (2003). 2022 Jan-Feb;62(1):345-348. doi: 10.1016/j.japh.2021.11.019. Epub 2021 Nov 24.


As increasing numbers of U.S. states and jurisdictions grant pharmacists the authority to prescribe contraception, it is essential that pharmacists understand reproductive justice principles. Many structural barriers exist surrounding pharmacist contraception services that limit patient access to and ability to use these services. Pharmacists should offer comprehensive and all-inclusive reproductive health care services and referrals as part of their role as contraception providers.
