    Drug Agency Lowers Age For Next-Day Birth Control [W:297]

    http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/01/he...pill.html?_r=0

    The Food and Drug Administration said Tuesday that it would make the most widely known morning-after pill available without a prescription to girls and women ages 15 and older, and also make the pill available on drugstore shelves, instead of keeping it locked up behind pharmacy counters.
    Interesting move here.

    1. I know what is about to move up to #1 on the shoplifters' lists and

    2. I am beyond trying to make sense of it. I have to practically give a rectal DNA sample to get allergy medicine but I can walk in to pick up people's prescription pain meds for them at the pharmacy and never have to show ID.

    Why doesn't it make sense? You don't need a doctor to buy tylenol. On what medical basis do you make this statement?

    ... 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.

    I think there is a HUGE difference between tylenol and the morning after pill, don't you?

    Emotionally or medically?

    It is a serious question. Do you perceive this "huge difference" because it's birth control or because of some sort of medical reason to suspect the product is more dangerous to young people?

    Because it isn't. It's just as easy to use and just as safe when used properly. So on what basis do you make this "HUGE DIFFERENCE" statement other than your emotional aversion to young people having sex?

    But if you aren't willing to answer the question...
