And people wonder why healthcare in America costs so much.
    Yes, of course. When all parties understand what's going on, and no one has lied to anyone, it can't be anything but a fraud!

    I haven't seen any evidence of these "specific lethal complexities with MAPs" but if you have any info, I'd be happy to read it

    I would too. I keep thinking about how "the pill" was safe. How Premarin was safe. How RU-86 was safe. How Jaz was safe. And how this new pill may only be equally as safe or far more dangerous when used by children whose bodies are still developing.

    I worry about children with it because they might take it when it's too late. It's only supposed to be used up to 72 hours after intercourse. I don't know what happens in that case (taking it too late). Also, if they are taking some other medications, there could be interactions.

    The only difference is that a pregnancy is not prevented.

    And I know of no other medicine that presents a danger of interactions. Do you?

    Or take it too often. Any number of worrisome possibilities, including juvenile-onset diabetes. I've known several kids who went through scary rebellion about their insulin.

    Message #20 on page 2 of this thread. Most notable is the potential for a ectopic pregnancy. I could find other material to explain this can be lethal. There are, of course, other dangerous side effects.

    A plus of selling them out of the pharmacy and with a record kept, but no prescription, could address this somewhat by basic warning being given. It is unlikely a 16 year old would (or even could) read the micro legalistic print the put on warning sheets.

    How do you know that? Are you a doctor?

    Spare me your snarkiness please. I am unaware of any studies of pubescent girls taking Plan B. This could be, of course, because it's not widely available to them yet. In the meantime, I have pointed to multiple drugs that have been regarded as safe that turned out not to be. It's not unreasonable to worry that this new pill will be any different, particularly since children will have access to it.
