Are parents becoming irrelevant?
FDA OKs 'morning-after' pill for 17-year-olds
If the parents have no control over their seventeen year old's sexual activity, they failed as parents and made themselves irrelevant.
If the age of consent is sixteen this should be available to sixteen year olds, too.
But KMAN would rather have the government enforcing morals thereby protecting his...what a chump.
I agree. The morning after pill and all information about it should be as inexpensive and easy to buy as any contraceptive. It is easier than birth control pills now as you can get it over the counter.
A 17-year old of today has more information and knowledge about the world and themselves than a 35 year old during the 1980s would have had.
I think they should lower it to 15 to be honest. Who is a parent to say that a 15-year old must stay pregnant and deliver a baby?
a 17 year old will be strip searched in school for Advil but can walk into a pharmacy sans prescription of parental permission for this.
can you say mixed messages?
Under 18 = minor.... there is NO WAY that this should be given to any minor without parental consent
Why not? Anyone can buy condoms.
Funny.... there is a difference... just as there is between a batch of gunpowder, brass, a firing pin, a barrel, etc and a loaded weapon
And funny... seems like things like Sudafed require ID, kids can't just go buy it... but a morning after pill is not??
Give me a break
