We at New Times neither advocate nor condone irresponsible behavior, but we do understand that a bottle (or two) of wine, a few candles, and a dark, storm-drenched sky can, how should we say, get you in the mood.
And there are times when, try as we might to resist, even the most determined damsels succumb to the throes of passion. So, if you -- or one of your ever-so-slightly-slutty friends -- stands a chance of falling victim to unbridled desire, worry ye not!
Thankfully we live in the 21st Century. Planned Parenthood of Greater Miami understands your plight and is on-hand to help. Today the organization’s North Miami clinic -- located at 681 N.E. 125th Street -- is giving out free emergency contraception (EC) from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. More commonly known as the morning after pill, women can use EC to help prevent unwanted pregnancy up to five days after unprotected sex.
“Every women deserves every chance to prevent unintended pregnancy,” saysLillian Tamayo, agency president. “Every women should keep EC in her medicine cabinet, just in case!”
In August 2006, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration made EC available without a prescription for women aged eighteen and older. Planned Parenthood offers EC to women of all ages. Call 1-800-230-7526 for more information. --Joanne Green
