You need a prescription for emergency contraception (the morning after pill) in Hungary. Even if you're a victim of sexual assault, you must first see a doctor before getting a prescription. There are no age restrictions for purchasing EC.<ref>[http://www.cecinfo.org/country-by-country-information/status-availability-database/countries/hungary/ EC Status and Availability: Hungary]</ref> Many other European countries don't require a prescription for EC and, in January 2015, the European Commission approved the over-the-counter sale of ellaOne, a brand of emergency contraception. However, the Hungarian government announced that it would continue to require a prescription for emergency contraception in January 2015. Despite international urging to change these laws (including from CEDAW Committee, the UN expert body on human rights), the Hungarian government has not yet changed its stance on the issue.<ref>[https://www.hrw.org/news/2015/02/06/dispatches-hungary-tells-women-wait Dispatches: Hungary Tells Women to Wait]</ref>
