    Um, Buying contraception and buying a soda are two different concepts entirely.

    ugh.

    "Hmmm... "protected" may not be the right word here."

    Translated that for me.

    So many logically fallacies in this attempted spin to make things personal, it's quite amazing.

    Believe it or not, there are parents out there that are involved in the lives of their children, that have good and trusting relationships, and do not feel (as some seem to) that government needs to take over. Lord knows just about anything government touches turns to crap. So they can stay away from our children, and quit trying to remove the rights and responsibilities of parents.

    ... why on earth would people shoplift this product, of all things? It's not like there's going to be a black market for morning after pills.
    There probably will be.

    These pills are powerful hormones allowing abuse and I am concerned of them using as pranks or to covertly force chemical abortion a girl/female may not want to have.

Besides which, my parents finding out I had pre-marital sex would lead to great shame and potential disownment. My reproductive status is none of their business.

    If they're mature enough to be having sex and maybe get pregnant, then they're mature enough to use the morning after pill.

    My only concern is the lack of research about this pill for girls at age 15. But the FDA has been wreckless in recent years, so they'll just let the public experiment until something goes wrong and then modify the drug policy, as usual.
    Did they pay for the health insurance that covered you? If something had gone wrong, whose insurance would have paid for it....yours or your parents'? There's nothing like being 15 and smarter than everyone around you.

    I have a daughter, and I would sure have liked to know if my daughter was having sex at age 15. I wonder how many people without daughters or any children are piping up in here as a bunch of know-it-alls, trying to tell us how parents shouldn't know if their daughters are taking a pill. You have no idea how it feels to be a parent. I've been a teen, and frankly even the most level-headed teens are stupid about life. It's easy to be a parent-hater until you are one.

    The government hasn't taken over anything. They made a product more available. In what universe is that a government takeover of anything? They REMOVED restrictions.

    Why would there be a black market for a product you can buy at any pharmacy? There's no black market for snickers bars, dude.

    They don't cause abortions and nobody is going to prank anyone with morning after pills, what the hell? Anything can theoretically be used as a prank, I think laxatives are going to be a more popular choice.
