    What do you think? Should this pill be allowed to be sold next to the condoms? They are about $50, according to the article, so people most likely wouldn't be buying them as they do condoms. Also, think of how often the pharmacy is often open. I know that sometimes when I have a cold by the time I can get to the store the pharmacy is closed. The sooner you take this pill the more effective it is. So what do you think?


    I believe there are several major retailers now days, including CVS and Walgreens (probably others where the place is actually open 24 hours too), that have their actual pharmacy open 24 hours a day.

    Re: Plan B will continue to be offered ONLY behind the counter

    The major reason I am for keeping this behind the counter (although I think there should be something available for young women to be able to access it, maybe having a doctor available for young girls to see to approve on the spot) is because there are some blood disorders that prevent some women from using many forms of birth control, including myself. Young women, especially teenage girls are not necessarily going to understand this. And even birth control requires a prescription. These things do have the potential for severe side effects that need to be explained.

    I have no problem with Plan B. I consider it a good alternative for women who didn't use or couldn't use birth control or who believe their BC may have failed. Especially a good thing for rape victims (completely for this being offered to every rape victim that it could legitimately be of use to).

    This is true. Most insurance companies require that pharmacy chains have certain pharmacies open 24 hours a day in case their patients have an emergency prescription need. There is almost always a 24 hour pharmacy open in someone's area. If not, they may be able to go to a hospital pharmacy.

    It's a timing issue. If you cannot comprehend that, then obviously there is no point in us continuing this, or any discussion.

There's not a damn thing you can do about it. And that's a good thing.
    By law. That's how you force the people to be married. I'm not concerned with a positive environment for the child. I'm concerned with a negative environment for the two people who have chosen to act in a stupid and immoral manner. The fact that we can't do something about those things is one of my major problems with our society today.

    Tigger, you know you have quite different than most peoples views nowadays right? It is hard for many of us to comprehend the difference in timing for you. You are right that there is no reason to try explain it because in your mind it just changes with the act in reference to morality. Thats all the explanation you have.

    That's also the only explanation necessary. We need to get back to a society where MORAL Crimes are considered the most heinous and the most thoroughly punished.

    The obvious problem with this is that not everyone has the same morals. There probably isn't even a super majority of people that have the same moral.

    In this day and age, you're absolutely right. That's part of the problem we have as a nation right now. Of course we could just go back to the general morals and values that Western Civilization had for centuries.

Yes, that can happen naturally as well, but then let's let nature take its course and see what happens, shall we?

    As for the punishment aspect... yes there is some of that in there. I do think you miss that I would force the father to marry her and support her and the child as well, so it's not just her that would be punished. I'm all for anything that promotes the reduction in casual sex (protected or not).
    Gee - didn't see that coming

    The most sexist and mysogynistic member of this forum holds this view - I MOST CERTAINLY will go out of my way to hold the opposite view seeing as how it's a matter of control and power over women in the end.
