Quoting OneLoveMama:" you dont have to have parents come with you, you never did. there was always confidentiality with say ... [snip!] ... which you could go and buy plan B right there and there, but a file is made for that "Patient" because it is a medical issue."


I know that when I was 15 I had no idea about Planned Parenthood or anything. No one that I knew did either. Maybe it's different in other areas.

maybe if you dont know about planned parenthood and your options to deal with consequences of getting pregnant at a young age ....... ummm maybe they shouldnt be having sex! i think this is where parents come to play, once kids have boyfriends/girlfriends THE TALK needs to include things like these, a second options to go to when the do not want to talk to the parent . so yea imo it all ties back to the parents, who obvously didnt raise enough awareness and didnt have a good enough talk with their kids, if they do not know about their options especially when it comes to places like planned parenthood. i knew about it when i was 16, and that was many many years ago

I think its great. Kids dont need to be having kids. If they screw up, they shouldnt screw up an innocent baby's life too.



Kids will always have sex. Always. We should go with it and provide access to free birth control options so that these screw ups dont hurt an innocent baby.



So wooohooo for it, I would respect the right for my daughter to get it. Though, Id be the Mom that would get it for her no questions asked in the first place.

Condoms reduce the risk of STDs. Having a "simple fix" of taking Plan B will mean "green light" for sex without condoms.



In the 70s, when BCPs became widely available, STDs skyrocketed and "new" ones spread quickly. Hello genital herpes :)

Well our plans are to educate on STDs, condoms, abortions, plan B pill and so forth. I think it should all be taught, not just Plan B. I do think this is a good step in the right direction, now we need to teach safe sex along with it.

How is it a steps. The right direction? Would it be even better if 12 yr old can get it?

To me it's right step in direction towards educating kids when it comes to sex. It opens communication on safe sex as well as what options there are in case of pregnancy..

How so? This ruling isn't about education. plan B is for an "oops" or rape. And, it's not a pregnancy option.

If kids and parents or guardians of kids see this they will start talking and probably more then just on Plan B. Plan B is a type of birth control which should also be discussed along with condoms.

Lol. I agree that it is a learning opportunity BUT there are countless other ways of bringing up the topic of BC.
And, Plan B should NEVER be brought up as birth control. It's emergency contraception because of a f**k up or rape.
You don't need to do something this drastic to stimulate a conversation about responsible, safer sex and rape.

The problem I see with this so readily available (and trust me, I'm so pro-reproductive rights) is that it increases the chances of teens engaging in unprotected sex with more frequency.



I can just see a 15 year old saying to their sexual partner "Oh, it's okay to not use a condom. I picked up Plan B before I got here."



Teen girls are more concerned about preventing pregnancy than they are about STIs. I can see it becoming a huge issue for the girls who don't want to regularly take birth control.
