It shouldn't be up to the parents. Pregnancy is a medical issue just as much as preventing it is, and under aged women who get pregnant are more prone to death from childbirth than other age groups.

    Plan B prevents implantation, not ovulation. Only the birth control pill can prevent ovulation.
    Who decides the "sexually active ages" ? Or is that up to the kid ............ err "woman" ?

    It is a false dichotomy whether your accept it or not. We don't have to treat Plan B as we do vaccines because there is more than one alternative.

    Well, they obviously weren't very effective in preventing their daughter from spreading her legs, why would you think they'd be any "help" at this point ?...............................

    Actually, it's not up to kid either, it's up to their body ie hormones, genetic predisposition etc. Sexual activity is not something which you really choose to want to have anymore than you can pick and choose which gender you'll be attracted to. It simply kicks off, and then it's up to the person to decide whether they'll act on it or not. The only way you'll keep your kids from sexual activity if they really want to act on sexual attraction is by keeping them locked in their room 24/7. And even then, there is always masturbation which you'll have to pretty much "beat" (I like puns) out of them if you don't want them doing it.

    I never claimed we had to treat it the same. In fact I asked how vaccinations are treated because I was not sure.

    Hatuey jumped to wild conclusions.

    Would you let a child of yours make his/her own decisions as to what medication is appropriate for any circumstance?

    Check your English. I submit that one is not "sexually active" until they "act" on it, that is, to "choose" to copulate. Masturbation requires no pill of any sort, and is a red-herring.

    I also submit that many responsible kids, and their parents, do feel the urge of hormones, but know that self-discipline is also a factor.

    You have otherwise outlined an "if it feels good, do it" behavior. For shame.
