ORLANDO, Fla. — Several retailers are limiting the sale of emergency contraceptives as people try to stock up following the Supreme Court’s ruling last week on abortion rights.
Major pharmacies like CVS, Walmart, and Rite-Aid have announced purchasing limits on Plan B, or the “morning after” pill.
Representatives from each pharmacy claimed they’ve seen a spike in purchases since the Supreme Court’s ruling.
CVS recently lifted its purchasing limit. Walmart cites “fluctuating demand” as the reason their limits may change.
Rite-Aid currently has a limit of three Plan B purchases per customer.
Neither company would share precisely how much of an increase they’ve seen in Plan B purchases.
