You seeing them as similar does not make them similar.i'll add another example that I see as quite similar, the issue of parents views on chemo therapy when they override the child's.
A false dichotomy did exist, as you were comparing an issue which involves sexual relations to ones who do not and continue to provide them as the alternative when there exist perfectly valid alternatives which also include the sexual perspective.What you seemed to not understand, is I was asking actual questions and openly wondering how I see this issue. No false dichotomy existed. you just jumped in wanting to score stupid points for your oversized ego and jumped to conclusions as a result.
I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

The FDA does not regulate based on morality, they regulate based on what they think is best for public health. If anything I think the side with the most morals invested is likely the one that supports 100% OTC status for Plan B.
There is no way in hell that Plan B should be OTC while hormonal birth control is not, that doesn't make regulatory sense. I also think it's dangerous and that this is one of the drugs that should be sold OTC under safe use conditions to adults and to children with parental consent.
