Since the news came out of Roe vs. Wade being overturned there has been a lot of talk about the Supreme Court possible banning birth control!

Now we're hearing Big stores including CVS, Rite Aide and Walmart will start to limit the number of the emergency contraceptives that people can buy on its website and in its stores.

I can imagine some people are buying some just to have a stash in case that happens or maybe some people are trying to buy a lot to resell them and make some money!

CVS said in a statement that it had ample supply of the pills online and in stores, but that it wanted to ensure "equitable access and consistent supply on store shelves."

Alicja Wojczyk, senior manager of external communications for Rite Aid told CNN in an email, “due to increased demand, at this time we are limiting purchases of Plan B contraceptive pills to three per customer.”

Walmart is capping purchases of the pills this week at four or six. Meanwhile,,Walgreens' website initially said there would be limits on the pills as well, but the company later revealed that the restriction was an error.
