To me it's right step in direction towards educating kids when it comes to sex. It opens communication on safe sex as well as what options there are in case of pregnancy..

How so? This ruling isn't about education. plan B is for an "oops" or rape. And, it's not a pregnancy option.

If kids and parents or guardians of kids see this they will start talking and probably more then just on Plan B. Plan B is a type of birth control which should also be discussed along with condoms.

Lol. I agree that it is a learning opportunity BUT there are countless other ways of bringing up the topic of BC.
And, Plan B should NEVER be brought up as birth control. It's emergency contraception because of a f**k up or rape.
You don't need to do something this drastic to stimulate a conversation about responsible, safer sex and rape.

The problem I see with this so readily available (and trust me, I'm so pro-reproductive rights) is that it increases the chances of teens engaging in unprotected sex with more frequency.



I can just see a 15 year old saying to their sexual partner "Oh, it's okay to not use a condom. I picked up Plan B before I got here."



Teen girls are more concerned about preventing pregnancy than they are about STIs. I can see it becoming a huge issue for the girls who don't want to regularly take birth control.

Yay we agree on something. :P You may not see it as a birth control option, but that is basically what Plan B is. I do want our kids to know about it, and for it to be available to them in case of traumatic experiences such as rape. Unfortunately something it does take something drastic to get guardians to speak with their kids about safe sex. It's sad, but is true in some cases.

Where are teens going to get that kind of money though? Its still $40-$60 in most places. Condoms are definitely cheaper.

Adults abusing kids will find the money.
And, they will have a generic alternative approved very soon.

Hey, I think a new variety flavor of condom came to the market. There's another teaching moment :)
Just kidding with you :)

I think that the consensus is, "Hey, teenagers have sex. They don't listen to/respect their parents ANYWAY. We can only do so much and it usually falls on deaf ears so let them screw and self abort."



LAZY PARENTS!




these are the same parents who give children way too much info before they are emotionally ready and WAY too much freedom to go along with it. It's akin to condoning promiscuity and then championing over the counter birth control to counteract said promiscuity.

Plan B isn't abortion so I don't know why you said "self-abort." Also I can not speak for everyone else here, but that is not my attitude on this issue. I am going to speaking with our daughters openly about safe sex,waiting to have sex, as well as teaching about things like Plan B. I don't think that makes me lazy to let our daughters know Plan B is available..

Not if you go into Planned Parenthood. And it is covered under some insurances.

I can teach my child to have sex protected, but we all know that protection fails. I honestly highly doubt that a bunch of teens are going to have lots of sex without condoms because plan B is out there and they just don't give a damn about STDs. I really see it as an irrational fear.
