    Again, it's a medical decision, not a political one. What you're talking about is politics, not medicine. If the politicians want this drug restricted I'm sure they'll pass a law making it so. I do not want the FDA making political decisions and, by law, they can't - and this case was won exactly because the FDA can't make those decisions.

    No judge made that decision. You misunderstand the case.

    The case was whether the FDA had the authority to put an age restriction on something when there is no medical proof there should be such a restriction. It's a medical issue, not a political one.

Do we really believe that all 13yr old girls or young teens have sexual intercourse willingly?

    I hope there's some form of inquiry at the pharmacy when a young woman goes to purchase this pill.

    So now only adult females should be allowed to purchase this OTC?

    Jeez, is it OK with you if I pick up my wife's birth control pills when I stop in for bread and milk? Or does she have to make a special trip just to appease you?

    I do. My daughter is now 31 and the mother of three, the first of which she had at 19, almost a year after she got married.

    Sadly, they are. This decision won't stop that from happening.

    Females who are of age of consent at least.

    This is completely irrelevant. I don't know what your wife's BC pills have to do with the topic.

    We all know how children and teenagers think, in my case I used to be one.

    Meaning I could pick up my wife's BC pills but I couldn't pick up a MAP when it's OTC? Doesn't that sound a little odd to you?

    And what's to stop someone off the street from just buying it for them - for a fee, of course. You think alcohol doesn't get into the hands of minors? (And that takes a 21 y/o around here, not just 18.) Or maybe you think that many liquor stores actually risk their license to sell to minors? And if that many liquor stores DO sell to minors then surely you can see that pharmacies wouldn't be far behind in your scheme to force them into acting as enforcement agencies.

    You mean you're not, anymore!



    LOL! - You know I know you're not, legally speaking, right?

    Well, they didn't sell them to minors before, and that wasn't a big problem as far as I'm aware. I suppose that you don't think there should be an age limit on alcohol consumption either? Heck, why not let them start with the cirrhosis of the liver before they even know what's going on.
