    Where does it stop? So, first its rape victims should be required to take it.
    Wait, who said that?

    Nobody is saying that rape victims or anyone else should be REQUIRED to use Plan B.

    Someone said that it they thought it should be "almost required" of a rape victim.

    I knew I saw it.

    I don't agree, mainly because it still is her body. And, although most women would not have an issue taking Plan B after a rape, I can see it being a difficult choice for at least a few women in very specific circumstances. I think I would have a difficult time taking it if there was a chance any baby could actually be my husband's vice the rapist's.

    It absolutely should be offered free of charge for any rape victim though and she should be given full information about what could happen if she does get pregnant, her options past those days when Plan B is effective, what it will cost, and other relevant information. This will be a lot of info, but if there is any chance that she is likely to get an abortion later due to this, and she can take Plan B, it should be impressed upon her that Plan B is absolutely the better option, from most any perspective.

    Prove that you were raped.

    Did you get a rape kit done at a hospital or a police station?

    Did the perpetrator get arrested in time?

    Did you take the matter to court and get a criminal conviction?

    Are you sure you were even raped? I mean, maybe you actually were interested but changed your mind at the last minute?

    Etc etc...

    Plan B should be available to every woman in a prompt fashion. They shouldn't have to give any reason or personal details to get it. As soon as you create imaginary stipulations, then access is more difficult and restrictions become aribitrary.

    Anyone who was mature enough to have sex and accidentally get pregnant is mature enough to receive Plan B. Whether or not it was a product of rape is none of your business.
