    Yeah, the support for this decision fails miserably when you realize that they are attributing clear thinking and maturity to 15 year olds. One has to wonder if the people making this argument were ever 15 years old.

    My issue is this. We don't really have totally control over our kids once they reach a certain age. I mean, on paper we do. But they're going to do things against our will. One of those things could be having sex and maybe getting pregnant. If a young woman has to wait for her mother's permission to get the morning after pill, the fertilized egg could implant and then it will be abortion territory.

    If a 15 year old even has the wisdom to know she should seek the morning after pill, then she would spare her parents a lot of agony by quietly dealing with. If she needs an abortion then she would definitely need parental permission, and that's when the can of worms really gets opened, whether her parents say yes or not.
    Up until she can't afford the MAP because she thinks it is a convenient form of birth control, that unlike other forms of birth control, she doesn't have to get a prescription for. Teens don't think ahead, they don't think about the consequences of what they do, which is why we shouldn't be allowing them to have the easy way out.

    I understand the other side, I really do, but this is going to turn into birth control on demand rather than the emergency birth control it is designed for. Many young college age women already use it that way.

    So you do not have any children, thanks for the indirect answer via failed diversion from the question.

    Not to mention that these drugs will not really be tracked in any meaningful way if they are over the counter, so a kid as young as 15 can buy boxes of them and sell then to kids who are 11, 12 years old.

    Let me stop you right there. You're blatantly attempting to avoid discussion of the issue by declaring that someone who doesn't have children has no valid opinion on the subject.

    If you have no point to make, don't post.

    I am avoiding nothing, I asked a question, and rather than answer it you diverted by asking a non-related question. And yes, there is a difference in validity of opinions on the subject between those that are currently or have already, raised children and those that have not. It's called experience. Those that have not, do not know the daily in's and out's of what a child at that age is like, at home, with personal issues. It's a simple fact.

    Your last line is amazingly funny. Hi pot.

    ... 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.

    It would move up on a shoplifter's list because many shoplifters are young women looking for things they need or want, and either can't afford or don't feel like paying for. Plus, since these pills are around $40-$50 a piece, there is no reason why young women and even men wouldn't try to snatch them rather than pay for them since many young people cannot afford that price, not without help from their parents or another adult anyway.

    I wouldn't say that "most" don't. That's kind of pushing the envelope, don't you think? Anyway, this takes it completely out of the hands of parents, whether they are responsible parents or not. 15 years old is pretty young IMO.
