Since you can’t stop kids from having sex, better to supply them with the means to prevent or end pregnancies than the alternative.

A federal judge has ruled that the emergency contraception drug Plan B One-Step, a.k.a. the “morning-after pill,” must be made available over the counter to everyone. The decision, issued Friday, overturns a rule that required anyone 16 years old and younger to have a prescription in order to get the pill.

    It’s hilarious that the two of you felt necessary to criticize me for my “nanny-state” comment, rather than address my comment about the actual topic.

    You asked if I had a conscious or just a knee jerk (the term is ‘knee jerk reactionary’). It’s totally irrelevant.

    You and Gawd read into my comment a motive or intent based upon your own bigotries that was never there.

    After years of reading this blog, I’m convinced you don’t care what anyone says, you’re just interested in “gotcha” rhetoric to massage your ego.

    In fact, your ego will force you to reply with your typical nonsense, how pathetic you really are .

    ///////////////////// Bravo! I think you have it.

    Now, stand real close to a mirror. Any condensation?

    I went back to check. I did not respond to you (Big Boy) but rather to Pedro. I know…. what a waste of time, but even given that, so much better than responding to the null of your post, just as you eventually demonstrated. So demonstrative of the very complaint you threw against the wall. Ha, ha.

    If these girls don’t bother to use birth control or insist on their partners to use condoms before sex, why would anyone assume they would bother to use plan-b after? /// Ummm, to avoid staying pregnant and having a baby? Seems so OBVIOUS, you must be posting to make some other point than how blindly stupid you are? Let’s see what it is??????………((Dare we?????))

    Once again, the nanny-state is trying to mitigate the consequences without addressing the problem. //// Ha, ha. No. A complete Failure on so many levels. This thread is about the COURTS overturning the politicizing pandering nanny state interests. You know—that old bugaboo FREEEEEEEEEEDOM interest all individuals have. Even kiddies. Even girl kiddies. Even sexually active girl kiddies.

    How is providing a day after pill ANYTHING BUT addressing the problem?????? RATS!!!!====> A direct question twice asked now. I guess we’ll never find out what the problem really is……

    I hate it when that happens.

    This really is the basic calculation.

    As a parent you do your best to model and teach sexual responsibility to your children.

    But, ultimately, they make their own decisions.

    Nobody likes it, but it’s great that Plan B is there, if your daughter needs it.
