Are you okay with the pharmaceutical companies using our children as guinea pigs?

I have read a lot about Plan B , I have some medical knowledge and just do not think Plan B is as harmful as you seem to think it is.
I understand your concern for minors. I am a parent of 4 and I get it.
I am also a grandparent.
I have 14 teen age nephews and nieces whom live near by and are very near and dear to me.
I do not want any of them to end up being teen parents.
I also trust them enough that I feel if they ever felt they needed to use Plan B they would use it responsibly.
IMO, it is just so irresponsible to just give young girls this pill and say it's all good now. A lot of times it's when an adult becomes aware of a teen's situation that the teen actually receives the help she (or he) needs. I'm talking in psychological/psychiatric terms; not just the pregnancy.
If they are self destructive they most likly would not concern themselves with buying such an expensive drug.
They would not care about protecting themselves from pregnancy.
