Several things come to my mind when I read of things like this. Being told that it would never happen leaps to my mind. Being told by politicians that the government would never subsidize such a thing is another example of my thoughts having read this report.
Why not lower the age to 10? Some girls become hormonally mature at age 9! Why discriminate? And to hell with thinking or believing that a child's parents should have any say so in such a thing. They abdicated their parental rights the day the child was born into a modern day American post contemporary family unit. Just ask any civil libertarian they will tell you. This is all perfectly alright in the minds of liberalism.
FDA lowers age for buyers of Plan B pill to 15
In a surprise twist to the decade-plus effort to ease access to morning-after pills, the government is lowering the age limit to 15 for one brand - Plan B One-Step - and will let it be sold over the counter.Today, Plan B and its generic competition are sold behind pharmacy counters, and people must prove they're 17 or older to buy the emergency contraception without a prescription. A federal judge had ordered an end to those sales restrictions by next Monday.But Tuesday, the Food and Drug Administration approved a different approach: Plan B could sit on drugstore shelves next to condoms, spermicides or other women's health products - but to make the purchase, buyers must prove they're 15 or older at the cash register.Manufacturer Teva Women's Health, which had applied for the compromise path, said it planned to make the switch in a few months.
