    I get what your saying, but I don't think it's any more severe then the drugs you already find in drug stores. Additionally, if you look at the risk of side effects for plan b, you'll see almost the exact same list for a latex allergy. One does not seem more or less dangerous then the other. Also, not all morning after pills affect ovulation. Some just prevent fertilization.

    To me, if one is available without restriction, the other should be too. But that's just my personal opinion.

    You sure about that? Would you be comfortable taking Plan B daily?

    Judge strikes age restrictions for "morning after" pill

    Let the child have the pills, but follow them and arrest the person who was the reason for needing the pills. Seems fair to me.

    Re: Judge orders morning-after pill available without prescription

    The drug is already available to 11 year-olds on prescription, and is safer than many drugs prescribed to children "off label" where a drug is used on children even though it is only approved for adult use. The entire hullabaloo is being stirred up by those who would seek to continue the restriction of access to these drugs by women of all ages, who can now buy the morning after pill OTC without delay.

    " ...The reader will observe that Secretary Sebelius did not
    say that, “if not used properly,” levonorgestrel-based emergency contraception could have an
    “adverse effect” on the youngest girls of reproductive age, nor did she include within that group
    girls as young as 10. Indeed, the drug is currently available to the youngest girls of reproductive
    age with a prescription.
    This case is not about the potential misuse of Plan B by 11-year-olds. These emergency
    contraceptives would be among the safest drugs sold over-the-counter, the number of 11-year-7
    olds using these drugs is likely to be miniscule, the FDA permits drugs that it has found to be
    unsafe for the pediatric population to be sold over-the-counter subject only to labeling
    restrictions, and its point-of-sale restriction on this safe drug is likewise inconsistent with its
    policy and the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act as it has been construed. Instead, the invocation of
    the adverse effect of Plan B on 11-year-olds is an excuse to deprive the overwhelming majority
    of women of their right to obtain contraceptives without unjustified and burdensome restrictions...."
