The pharmacist will want to watch people buy it and try to talk to them about it? Does Amazon carry this thing yet?

As a parent, I do not want my kid having sex, but I know that there is always that possibility and I would want to provide this Plan B to my kids as a result.

unless schools teach about it, how is a 11 year old gonna know about it, much less get to the pharmacy? this is as absurd as handing out condoms in grade school. any parent who would tell their tween about this, should have their children taken away from them and put in adoptive homes.

nomeds - You could always have provided Plan B to your minor child. This allows them to buy it without your knowledge. Big difference.

"I know that there is always that possibility and I would want to provide this Plan B to my kids as a result"

The new law allows them to provide it to themselves. Parents not required. Why should you care? Parents are obsolete in the liberal Utopia. The government is the new parent.

wisiag must not have much contact with kids anymore. When I was 11, I didn't know anything. But 11 year olds today can be very easily informed about anything, especially if they have internet access. I think the real target for this is quite a bit older than 11 --it's teenagers and young women of many ages who want a back up plan for mistakes, and don't want to have an embarassing social interaction with a pharmacist in order to to get it. I think the pharmacist who wants to keep an eye on it & talk to the buyers totally misses the point--girls and women do not want that conversation.

“I will do everything I can to keep them safe,” she said of her own daughters, now 4 and 6. But she worries that the decision will turn life-changing choices over to women who are still children. “This is not Plan B — this is Plan A,” she said. - No Plan A is not having sex or Plan A is using a condom or already being on the pill. I'm so sick of hearing this debate. The thing costs $30-40 a pop. Condoms cost $4. Do you really think a teenager is going to spend that kind of money? Plan B is meant as a backup when other birth control fails...ie a condom breaks or someone forgot to take their pills...or yes, someone was not responsible...but considering the few kids that might take it, to the adult women that know about it and should have unrestricted access to it (as approved by FDA scientists 15 or more years ago) this is finally some good news.

Liberal Hollywood will put it in prime time shows. Their friends will talk about it. How on earth do 11 year olds know anything? Do 11 year olds have bikes? Do they walk? Do they know what a bus is?

"The new law allows them to provide it to themselves. Parents not required. Why should you care? Parents are obsolete in the liberal Utopia. The government is the new parent." In any event, I would want my kids to have access to Plan B without my having to provide it to them.

One of the reasons homosexual lifestyle is persecuted in Russia is that it does not increase the population of the Russian people. Propagation of the species seems a little weak since the governments of the world, Washington and the Planned Parenthood organizations promote birth control, morning after, abortion, and family size including ZPG and these are all sanctioned worldwide. Yet no one bans persecutes or sanctions the politicians and the people supporting these actions. What is the "real" rest of the story?
