The British Pregnancy Advisory Service, which carries out the most abortions in the UK, said "women of all ages" should be able to keep the morning-after pill at home.
Teenage girls should be given greater access to the morning-after pill in schools and GP surgeries, health watchdog Nice said.
Ann Furedi, chief executive of the British Pregnancy Advisory Service, told The Times (£): “Ideally we would like women of all ages to be able to either keep the emergency pill at home or obtain it free of charge from their local pharmacy.”
