It wasn't that hard to get before this happened...I was 15 and I still got it. Most teenagers have a friend that's 18 that would get it for them anyway.

ummm NO? thats not AT ALL what i am getting at! i am saying plan B is not a vitamin. its a a steroids and hormones in high doses being pumped into your body to make you stop releasing your egg. It is not something that should be taken lightly by under 18 years of age. i am more so referring to the 15-16 bracket, at which age a lot of girls are still very much so developing. and to be able to freely go out and get it as often as they please since there are no restrictions on it, is just going to cause more health problem for those people in the future. which just means this whole pharmaseutical world is of course going to get exacly what they want. $$$$$$

And how many teens do you know that think "hey, there's this pill that I can get someone to get for me right now and I won't get pregnant...oh wait, better not, let's go talk to my parents and get them to make me a doctor's appointment which is in three days and by then the pill won't even work".

you dont have to have parents come with you, you never did. there was always confidentiality with say Planned Parenthood, to which you could go and buy plan B right there and there, but a file is made for that "Patient" because it is a medical issue.

I know that when I was 15 I had no idea about Planned Parenthood or anything. No one that I knew did either. Maybe it's different in other areas.

maybe if you dont know about planned parenthood and your options to deal with consequences of getting pregnant at a young age ....... ummm maybe they shouldnt be having sex! i think this is where parents come to play, once kids have boyfriends/girlfriends THE TALK needs to include things like these, a second options to go to when the do not want to talk to the parent . so yea imo it all ties back to the parents, who obvously didnt raise enough awareness and didnt have a good enough talk with their kids, if they do not know about their options especially when it comes to places like planned parenthood. i knew about it when i was 16, and that was many many years ago

I think its great. Kids dont need to be having kids. If they screw up, they shouldnt screw up an innocent baby's life too.



Kids will always have sex. Always. We should go with it and provide access to free birth control options so that these screw ups dont hurt an innocent baby.



So wooohooo for it, I would respect the right for my daughter to get it. Though, Id be the Mom that would get it for her no questions asked in the first place.

Condoms reduce the risk of STDs. Having a "simple fix" of taking Plan B will mean "green light" for sex without condoms.



In the 70s, when BCPs became widely available, STDs skyrocketed and "new" ones spread quickly. Hello genital herpes :)

Well our plans are to educate on STDs, condoms, abortions, plan B pill and so forth. I think it should all be taught, not just Plan B. I do think this is a good step in the right direction, now we need to teach safe sex along with it.
