Report: More US women using morning-after pill

Use of the “morning after” birth control pill is on the rise.

The National Center for Health Statistics reports that in a five-year span that ended in 2006, 11 percent of sexually active women used the “morning after” pill, compared to four percent in 2002.

And nearly one in four women between 20 and 24 years old used the pill, which prevents pregnancy after sex.
