Sorry, but I understand this is a big argument of pro-choice people in this debate but I have yet to meet one that can actually use it.
    I'm not sure what your point is. I can use the argument that morality is subjective in pretty much any context.

    Then again, I'm from a school of thought which states that all laws should be based around the potential for a specific action to infringe upon the rights of another conscious human being. That kind of removes a subjective idea like "morality" from the discussion.

    Unfortunately people like Tigger do get a say in this matter. If it were up to the medical community, birth control pills and plan B would be made available over the counter. They are perfectly safe. You can kill yourself with tylenol, not so with birth control. There are other reasons they're not available to everyone.

    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'd say it was probably the right decision. It should remain prescription only, due to some possible harmful side effects.

    It should be available over the counter to help rape victims. Being raped is the most awful thing that could happen to a woman. Imagine having to go through that horrible ordeal and then being forced to bear the child of your rapist. The morning after pill can at least prevent that without the need for an abortion later on. Unfortunately some people think zygote rights take precedence over rape victim rights.

    Of course, because that is what's best for their profit margin. All too often in the last two centuries we have looked at the supposed benefits of some new technological or philosophical "advancement" and have not stopped for even a second to look at the moral and societal impact that it will have. Until people and corporations once again develop a social and moral conscience, there need to be layers to ensure that things like this don't just happen.

    As long as the perscription is attainable, I am satisfied. I don't care if they need to go to a walk in clinic to get it or if they need to consult the pharmacist like you have to do with some other over the counter perscriptions. Other people's morality is not my concern.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    Morality is purely subjective. Most people (thank whatever god or deity(ies) out there), don't think as you do. I'm very thankful for that. Your type of morality belongs in the dark ages and is no better than radical Muslims.

    I'm ok with it being behind the counter as it still makes it available to women.

    I'll take that as a compliment in both cases, since I see both as being much more morally acceptable than what we have in the United States today.

    Well then feel free to move to any Islamic dominated country. One has to wonder why someone like yourself with such contempt for the U.S. would decide to remain here instead of going to a more "morally acceptable" country like an Islamic controlled one.

    Trust me, it has been and will continue to be looked at on a regular basis. There are two main reasons I haven't....

    1. I believe that Morality is a higher calling that Religion. Therefore Theocracy is not something I care for.

    2. None of those countries that I've been able to find allow for the private ownership of firearms.

    3. I keep living in the hope that the US Citizens will soon wake up and take back this country from the immoral lot that has been controlling it for the last century and a half.
