    Re: Judge strikes age restrictions for "morning after" pill

    One of the side effects being death of the teenage girl is a bit concerning.

    But I'm sure they all would read the long 2 point type warnings and advise like we all do for any pills receive. You know, fold out that paper and read all the tiny print very carefully. Teenagers are always particularly careful to follow instructions before doing anything, particularly long, tiny print legalistic instructions with lots of technical terms.

Again, your concern is not about the childs health; it's about enforcing the parents control over their children which is not the job of a pharmacist.
    It should be a behind the counter non-prescription drug for that reason, but I also think a data base should be kept.

    "Aspirin" in not a good analogy. Although very rare, the can cause death if the teen does not know the warning signs.

    Yeah, I think that would probably be best.

    And aspirin probably wasn't the best analogy, but the fact is, just about every drug can be dangerous for some people. It's just that those drugs are not related to sex.

    And when that fails? What do we do then? Make childrens lives worse because their parents are a-holes? I thought every life was important.

    Hmm. One of the side effects of pregnancy is death too. What are we to do?

    Good morning Bonz - hope you're well and having fun.

    As for the question, I'd respond - 13 yr old daughter going through it alone or with the help of her mom and/or dad or even an older sibling who can talk with and listen to her after the fact, discuss the consequences, and help her feel good about herself moving forward. Some things in life require a level of emotional development that most 13 yr olds haven't yet acquired.

    True enough, and does nothing to ask a 13 yr old girl why she has so little self respect for herself and her body that she allowed herself to get into the situation in the first place. Stripping down the potential pregnancy of a 13 yr old to the clinical medical details does nothing to assist a young adult to grow and learn from her mistakes, unless, of course, you're a person who believes that 13 yr old girls should enjoy promiscuity as a normal course of elementary school graduation.

    Wow ...just wow...
    Nothing like putting words in my mouth I never said.

    My post was only facts about how Plan B works.

    You have a right to your own opinion but you do have a right to make up a scenario and accuse me of promoting promiscuity in a 13 old girl.

    Stepping off my soapbox now...
    When it comes to matters of reproduce health, Politicians and the religious dogma of another faith should never interfere with religious liberty of an individual or her faith.

    Re: Judge strikes age restrictions for "morning after" pill

    At what point in a kid's life should the parent no longer be held responsible for the kid's actions? For example, if the kid can obtain the 'morning after' medication w/o parental consent why should the parent be held responsible for the kids food, clothing, etc, or for that matter schooling? Just asking.

It has effects similar to ketamine and PCP though it is potentially much safer due to the way tit works.



    Benedryl, or dyphenhydromine hydrochloride, is a common ingredient in allergy medications, OTC sleeping pills, and I do believe it is also used for motion sickness medications which are also OTC. It will actually cause visual hallucinations at fairly minimal doses. From what i have seen the effects start around 3-5 times the recommended dosage.


    The morning after pill is not being abused for the sake of entertainment. Also, if you are really worried about your child doing this get them some regular Birth control. The only people who would abuse these things are those whos parents keep them deliberately ignorant so they seek out stupid solutions. You do not need the morning after pill if you already are on BC and using it properly. parents who are truly worried about these things could easily bring their daughters in to be presented with some actual information instead of just being silent about it and hoping their teen gets the right information from their stupid friends, or some comic book, or whatever they hope will educate their kids for them.


    things happen and kids have sex. One of the reasons many kids do things is because it is taboo. Not telling them about things does not prevent them from doing it. The only thing it does is prevbent them from using any information in making their choices, and it leads to them keeping everything a secret from their parents until it is too late. I would personally rather my daughter delayed ovulation for a few days to prevent pregnancy than to have to deal with a pregnancy. It is one thing to have sex and deal with the emotional crap that comes from teenage love. It is another thing to be saddled with a child when you are a teen. It is still another realm of stupid to hope your kids don't have sex. That is unless your kid is really ugly.
    I raised two daughters, long since gone. I didnít have many rules but no sex until they finished H.S. or until they reached their legal age. When it came to my rules, I would sit them down and in a low, quiet voice told them exactly what I expected. As far as I know, they followed that rule. Once they reached the legal age of 18, both went on birth control pills. But I had a another rule. As long as they lived under my roof, neither was to get pregnant until they married. Neither did. My oldest daughter moved out at the age of 19 and got married. My youngest daughter lived under my roof until she was she was 30, got married and finally moved out.

    I donít buy all this talk of teenagers are going to do what they are going to do. My oldest daughter lives across the road from me, she has had two daughters, one out of H.S. now and married and one still in H.S., as far as either one of know, neither had sex in H.S. She passed down the same rules I passed on to her. My youngest daughter has a daughter now age 4 and a little boy less than a year. My oldest daughter has also raised two boys, one in the army who has served a year in Afghanistan and one who just graduated from H.S. Neither one of those ever got a girl pregnant either.

    So I would say those of my family do not believe a teenager is going to do what ever a teenager does, taboo or not. That is modern day poppycock.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
