If you're 15 and have a valid id, you can get the morning after pill without a prescription. It was 17, but the food and drug administration dropped the age Tuesday.

Plan B does not end a pregnancy. It prevents ovulation if taken within 72-hours of having unprotected sex.

Benjamin Tally owns Medicap Pharmacy in Cape Girardeau and refuses to sell the pill.

"Until I'm mandated by law to have to carry it, I have chosen not to carry it," Tally said.

He cities his religious beliefs and moral conscience for reasons he doesn't have it in his store.

Different school leaders across the Heartland say told no changes have been made to the sexual education curriculum. They say that doesn't mean it won't happen and it doesn't mean it will.

"It's all about making sure we are helping their kids and allowing for that family input," Stan Seiler, Advance R-IV superintendent, said. "Sex ed is one of those topics that families want a lot of control over what their kids know."

Seiler says the school leaders haven't had any conversations on the changes made to Plan B, but he says they will take the same approach they always do. He wants the school to be a reflect of what the community wants.
