    Sorry to burst your bubble, but asside from a small handful of crazies, noone else thinks as you do in the United States. Your type of morality is thankfully dying out and will be gone eventually. Good riddance too.

    You're probably right, and in that moment the United States and humanity as a whole will cease to have any value whatsoever.

    You haven't looked at the laws in the nations. There's no reason to trust your word on this matter

    Almost all of the arab nations allow for private ownership of firearms

    Erm... No, they wouldn't. Artificial hormones are not necessarily as safe of Tylenol, dose for dose. You are aware of what Depo can do to you, just at the regular dose, right? They're pretty darn safe, but being under a doctor's care for the first 2 or 3 months on the pill is really a very good idea.

    I know plenty of women, myself included, who've had extreme reactions to hormonal birth control. Reactions to Plan B usually aren't as bad, because it's not a sustained dose. But seriously, artificial hormones are no joke, and a lot of people have a false impression of their potential side effects.

    I think it should stay exactly how it is. And no one is more pro-reproductive rights than me.

    I highly doubt the medical community all feel that birth control or Plan B should be available OTC. The medical community understands better than anyone that there are cases where women could have serious issues, even fatal ones, from taking birth control or Plan B because of certain medical conditions that they have but may not know will cause complications with them taking these things.

    As I've said on here before, I cannot take most birth control because of a blood condition I have because it greatly increases my chances of getting blood clots from birth control. I haven't needed Plan B, and really shouldn't need it, so I have no idea if I could take it or not. If I do think I ever need it, it would be nice to have someone available to answer that question for me. But young women might not even think to ask such a question, even if they know they have one of those blood conditions or some other condition that could cause issues. It wouldn't be them lying about it, but if they weren't given good information about it, they certainly may not even think to mention it. But the pharmacist should probably be asking about medical conditions women have and explaining any increased risks that may come from using something with those medical conditions.

    For all those who did not know, using most birth control increases your risk of blood clots. It is an insignificant increase for most women. Before I knew anything about the blood condition I have, I took birth control with no complications. But, if you have certain medical conditions, it could be a significant increase. Military doctors will not prescribe most birth control types for me now that they know I have this issue.

    But it's okay to kill such a life if it was created due to a rape?

    Can't say I've ever seen a situation where the woman consented to being raped. There is no need for a woman to be punished for a decision she was not involved in making. Now, for a decision she did make, that's another story entirely.

    So, basically, you're view is: it's okay to murder a baby because that baby is no longer useful in punishing adults for the sin of having sex.

    Awesome!

    At no point should drugs like these be offered over the counter. They radically alter body chemistry to achieve the desired effect, and quite frankly, I think they are dangerous. Course, I'm not gonna say they should be banned or anything, far from it. But I think a LOT of young girls and women take those things with a mindset that is totally oblivious to the harm they are doing to themselves. Make them over the counter, and watch the female youth of this nature hemorage.

    No. My view is that I'm only interested in punishing these people for improper decisions that THEY made themselves, not for decisions which were thrust upon them without their consent.
