    15 year old already have sex, dude. The availability of this pill doesn't change that, nor does the availability of this pill affect peoples' approval or disapproval of teenage sex.

    Your opposition of this "jagged" pill? It only leads to more unwanted pregnancies, more abortions, more kids being put up for adoption, and more kids being raised by unprepared single mothers who didn't want them. Why would you want more of that?

I hope that is printed in large letters across the box. Perhaps even have a public awareness campaign on it.
    That is actually why it is called Plan B, it is not intended to be anything but a backp and does say this on the packaging.

    It is only 95% effective when used within 24 hours (more effective when used sooner), but not nearly as effective as other contraceptives.

    Here's the package...

    I think you are confusing Plan B with RU486 - totally different function and far, far less dangerous

    Oh! RU486 was dangerous... but let me guess... worth it?

    You mean the pill isn't designed to abort? If it is, then there is zero difference.

    I don't have girls, but if I did, I would hope that like my boys, they would CHOOSE to come to me with a serious decision like this, BUT, if a child believes that it would better not to go to their parents, I would argue that the parents created the circumstances for the kid to feel that way. The other issue is time, this stuff is not an abortion pill, it prevents ovulation or fertilization, so it really is a contraceptive, but its effectiveness is reduced by the hour.

    Plan B does not terminate an existing pregnancy, no.

    No, it is literally a contraceptive, a conception prevention drug, just like birth control pills (same active ingredient), but in one larger dose to PREVENT fertilization. It will have no effect if fertilization has already taken place, which is why its effectiveness is reduced by the hour after unsafe sex.

    Plan-B is not designed to cause an abortion. Plan-B prevents the release of an egg, therefore no conception occurs.

    Plan-B does not interfere with a fertilized egg implanting, so if a zygote is formed the pregnancy will proceed as normal even if Plan-B is used (which occurs @10% of the time).

    I agree with lowering the age, and I agree with making Plan-B available without a prescription, but it should remain behind a locked case. It is not the 15 y/o customer I'm worried about, it's the shoplifters.

    I'm very concerned about the potential long-term effects on young bodies of this pill and also about the easy-to-imagine abuse of it by kids.
