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

    I wonder what the reasoning was when they originally set the age at 17? 17 is still a minor so this would indicate that any concerns over a parents right to know were never a factor in the first place.

    What I see coming from this thread is FEAR!

    F=Future

    E=Events

    A=Appearing

    R=Real

    There's always consequences for everything we do. Some are good, others are bad.

    In order to solve a problem...a problem has to be clearly defined.

    We can hypothesize potential problems - but that doesn't mean they'll happen.

    I suspect that should the access to Plan B happen...I don't think the drug will sit on the isle next to aspirin.

    In Texas we have to show ID and sign for certain types of drugs that use to be displayed openly for anyone to pick up...and without limitations on purchase quantities.

    There became definable problems associated with those particular drugs. The solution was: Get appropriate ID, get a signature, and limit purchases. That information goes to a central database and will red flag a person who hops from drug store to drug store to acquire larger quantities.

    In recent times we've had more and more reports that Tylenol can inflict serious physical damage and can even result in deaths. Yet...we see it openly sitting on counters.

    No doubt there'll be a way to monitor Plan B's buyers and amount use...etc. Hopefully there'll be minimal damages caused by the use of the drug.

    It most certainly IS.

    Unwanted children yes, but not necessarily teen age mothers.

    Perhaps for your kids, but I feel a parent should know what drugs and okay them when the child is a minor. You may be happy with that, I am not.
    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.

    Okay, so your saying now any minor regardless of age can walking into a drug store and buy it. It seems to me the parent control and responsibility just went out the window on this this.

    Judge orders morning-after pill available without prescription

    Judge orders morning-after pill available without prescription - CNN.com

    (CNN) -- A federal judge in Brooklyn, New York, has ordered the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to make the morning-after birth control pill available to people of any age without a prescription.The order overturned a 2011 decision by Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to require a prescription for girls under 17.
    Just wondering what everyone thinks about this. The past policy was that anyone under the age of 18 had to get a prescription for Plan B. Evidently with this court ruling they are mandating that it be completely OTC and that the FDA does not have the right to make it a prescription item for those under 18.

    Requiring a prescription makes it effectively unavailable as an emergency measure. Which is the point of plan B. This is a correct decision.

    I'm not opposed to the Morning After Pill, but making it available to minors, without a prescription? That's just nuts.

    There is no barred access for adults. It's regulated for minors meaning that only minors need a prescription, or at least that was the case before the ruling.
