    The school, internet, peers, commercials, Planed Parenthood.....

    I don't know that full-fledged "counseling" is required, the directions are pretty simple: "Take one tablet by mouth within 72hrs of unprotected sex". Turning my phone on is more complicated.

    I suppose it doesn't matter, but I guess I'd feel better if the parents were actually talking to their daughters about this.

    If the young girl has all this information from the sources you note, I'd hope she'd also have received a lot of counselling about not getting caught in this situation.

    I still believe it's a bad idea for young teens to have to take on major adult decisions without parental involvement.

    So it may take several weeks for a 15 year old to tell her parents that she is having sex and may be pregnant? Or does she just take it every time she has sex, just to be on the safe side? What about 14,13,12, and 11 year olds? Shouldn't they be included as well. They are all also minors so what's the difference?

    15 year olds having unprotected sex can also be complicated. If "the school, internet, peers, commercials, Planed Parenthood" hasn't already told her that unprotected sex is unwise they have already failed her. You appear to feel these groups can offer information that parents can't, and unjustifiably.

    Do you see the difference?
    I will never understand how someone could see the govt *not* doing anything as "government interference" and more govt regulation as being "not interfering"

    Here's a hint: It's not the govts job to raise your child. If you don't want your child to do something, then do your job as a parent

    In fact the government disallows minors from doing many things, including smoking and drinking. Why not drop all these laws? After all, it's not the govts job to raise your child. If you don't want your child to do something, then do your job as a parent

    Smoking and drinking have been proven to be harmful.

    Plan B has not.

    I agree, but we cannot force every parent to have a healthy relationship with their children. The law needs to account for the full range of acceptable behavior, not just the behavior we would proffer. In the event of a dysfunctional or abusive relationship, getting Plan-B without parental consent is reasonable.

    Fair enough, but still a sad commentary on our society.

    What difference does it make whether it is harmful or not? After all, it's not the govts job to raise your child. If you don't want your child to do something, then do your job as a parent.
