New study connects emergency contraception to STDs
Posted by Staff
A new study finds that raised levels of access to “emergency contraception” are correlated with heightened rates of sexually-transmitted diseases but may not decrease teen pregnancy rates.

The study’s abstract suggests that increased access to such drugs “could lead to an increase in risk taking, especially among teens or young adults, and hence lead to increased rates of sexually transmitted diseases.”

Published Dec. 5, 2012 in Economic Inquiry, the study was authored by Dr. Christine Piette Durrance, assistant professor of public policy at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
