    There are parents who are so worried their daughters will get pregnant, they start them on depo shoots and other long term birth control as soon as their first menstrual cycle. I think that that is nuts. At least this is a little more practical.

    And the sooner you take it, the better.

    The sooner you take it, the more likely it is to prevent pregnancy. I think making OTC is the best way to make it avaliable.

    The FDA is in not position to make those decisions, which is what this law suit was all about. The FDA makes scientific decisions about medical safety, they do not cover questions of social acceptance or morality. Those are for law makers, not the FDA.

    For example, they'll imagine that OTC drugs are covered by health insurance.
    Yeah, I don't know of ANY health insurance policies that cover OTC drugs - that's just ignorance.
