Yay we agree on something. :P You may not see it as a birth control option, but that is basically what Plan B is. I do want our kids to know about it, and for it to be available to them in case of traumatic experiences such as rape. Unfortunately something it does take something drastic to get guardians to speak with their kids about safe sex. It's sad, but is true in some cases.

Adults abusing kids will find the money.
And, they will have a generic alternative approved very soon.

I think that the consensus is, "Hey, teenagers have sex. They don't listen to/respect their parents ANYWAY. We can only do so much and it usually falls on deaf ears so let them screw and self abort."



LAZY PARENTS!




these are the same parents who give children way too much info before they are emotionally ready and WAY too much freedom to go along with it. It's akin to condoning promiscuity and then championing over the counter birth control to counteract said promiscuity.

Plan B isn't abortion so I don't know why you said "self-abort." Also I can not speak for everyone else here, but that is not my attitude on this issue. I am going to speaking with our daughters openly about safe sex,waiting to have sex, as well as teaching about things like Plan B. I don't think that makes me lazy to let our daughters know Plan B is available..

Not if you go into Planned Parenthood. And it is covered under some insurances.

I can teach my child to have sex protected, but we all know that protection fails. I honestly highly doubt that a bunch of teens are going to have lots of sex without condoms because plan B is out there and they just don't give a damn about STDs. I really see it as an irrational fear.

yea but the overall picture the govt is displaying here is ... its ok, if you have unprotected sex and are underage , no you wont have to tell anyone you are having sex, no you wont know if you have an STD most likely and yes you will probably spread it, if you ahve an oopsie jsut run to the store. we all know how great unprotected sex feels! ... Condoms .. in a lot of stores have been moved right under the pharmacy window, or are actually locked up so you ahve to ask for them because everyone keeps stealing them ( everyone - majority teenagers ) so how are they going to practice safe sex, if they are too shy to go buy a condom or speak to their doctors and parents about safe sex .

Hmmm... I wonder if "they" thought that way in the 70s when BCPs caught on and STDs exploded.
It is NOT an irrational fear. Just talk to pediatricians and OB'GYNs.
