UncleStumpy: I honestly believe that abstinence is the best thing.


I appreciate that you are facing reality and trying to keep consistent with your faith but here is the result of expecting abstinence of your children.

CygnusDarius: Theaetetus: CygnusDarius: ... Sometimes, I fear big pharma. Not because of any conspiracy, but because they just want to make a quick buck.

This is one of those times. I'm not against protecting oneself from making any mistakes, but I think in the end, it's all about personal responsibility.

How is it encouraging personal responsibility to take away a responsible option?

I thought it was plain obvious that I don't like it. Sure, it'll help, but I like personal responsibility, it makes us grow up.


No, it sounds like you're opposed to personal responsibility. Personal responsibility is a person taking responsibility for their own actions by making responsible decisions. You want to take away an option, leaving them with no ability to make responsible decisions and instead locked into a choice that you made. What do we call it when we make decisions for other people and don't let them make decisions for themselves? We call it taking away their personal responsibility.

jst3p: philotech: The age was lowered to 17 in 2009.

I don't think this should be taught as a valid birth control option...

If you are not going to parent your child, give them birth control pills and teach them about condoms...

\\I really needed another reason to ignore the AAP...

The point is to have a backup incase the planned method fails, kinda why they call it "Plan B".


In that case, we should relabel coat hangers as Plan C and hand those out with Plan B, you know, just in case... (There is at least an 11% chance Plan B will not work)

What's the failure rate of Birth Control Pills + Condoms?

//How do they figure out that it is 89% effective? As far as I know, they can't tell if a girl is pregnant the morning after, so are they just taking credit every time someone has sex and does not get pregnant?

There are some who use it as standard birth control. Why, I have no idea- the morning after pill costs a hell of a lot more than a month of regular BC... something like $50 vs. $9.

Once in a while I could see it, but some folks just aren't ever going to plan ahead. My wife (pharmacist) always orders more Plan B when the holiday season comes up- seems something about this time of year has a bunch of people getting their freak on without one little bit of foresight. I know how things can be in the heat of passion, but geez... you'd think that if you've had to go get it once or twice you'd take other steps. Apparently not.

Lawnchair: I still haven't figured out how normal BC pills still require a prescription while Plan B is OTC (over 18 anyway). The former will probably be OTC soon enough. Rather than bothering with the Plan B prescription for your under-18 child, you might just buy a box ("for Mom") and leave it in a readily-accessible medicine cabinet with no questions asked.

Probably the best thing I've had for recognizing teen sex was in a church (well, Unitarian) Sunday school class. We (11-year-olds, I think) all were handed a $5 bill. We were instructed to go in pairs to the grocery or drugstore, buy condoms, and bring them to next week's class. Compared labels and prices, etc. But, mostly, get over the "OMG someone will see me buying condoms" bit at a young age.


That's an incredibly good idea.

My sophomore Biology teacher decided that our textbook danced around human reproductive anatomy way too much (and I think rather suspected the coach who taught sex ed wasn't too up on male anatomy at least), so she added her own unit on reproduction. It was mostly very anatomy focused, but one day she did cover different birth control options. Lots of them we'd talked about in sex ed, but she had collected examples of this huge assortment of them.

After going through how each worked, she told us a little story about buying them: A near retirement-aged woman goes up to the check stand just loaded down with several sizes of male condoms, female condoms, sponges and spermicidal lube, and the high school-aged checker just smiles and asks her if she's having a party. That story made me less self-conscious about buying a box of condoms.

This is the stupidest and most imoral solution Ive ever heard of in these GODDAMED OBAMA YEARS!!!. These pediatricishns obviously dont understand the LIFE these teenagers lead. YOU WANT A CHILD TO CARRY A PRESCRIPSHION FOR A POWERFUL DRUG FOR USE AFTER SEX!!?!?!?!?11? GOD KNOWS there is only one possible outcome for this scenario and it's not pretty and it's not one that you or anybody else on GODS GREEN EARTH wants to deal with. They'll lose it. Seriously, have you ever tried to get a teenager to hold on to anything? Have you seen their rooms? Put the shiat in vending machines at Wal-Mart and Walgreens, they can buy it when they need it.

vudukungfu: UncleStumpy: I have mixed feelings about this. As a Christian,TLDR! right back at ya.

Kids need to be educated before they can do something about how to do something safely.
Otherwise, YOU are responsible for not warning them.
It's old tribal law.
White people have a different boogie man, because they aren't accountable for their crotch droppings.

I agree with you on kids needing to be educated. As for being accountable, I am going to be the best man and person I can be, and lead as best I can. There's not much more I can do. I do believe too many people look for everyone else to blame these days. We are truly the society of "it's not my fault".

Not that you care, but I have no problem having people such as yourself thinking I'm a fool for my beliefs. I understand your thinking.

Have a good day

30,000 plan B pills used at 99% success rate when done properly.

300 women each have ~5% chance of becoming pregnant

People aren't perfect. We make mistakes. You really trust your teenager to use all three methods every single time? Hell, I never used more than one of those methods and I consider myself to be pretty intelligent.

It isn't a math problem, it is a human nature problem. People, particularly those who are under 20 and haven't fully devolped the part of their brain that is responsible for impulse control, don't always use their best judgement when hormones are involved.

If you don't think it is needed that's great. Don't use it. When I am counciling my daughter it will be one of the tools in the tool box. I will keep it on the table because I understand just a little bit about human nature.

When my wife and I were living in sin, we used condoms with a spermicide lubricant, and she was on the pill. Why? We had discussed it, and we decided that if we got pregnant, we would have the kid. We also didn't want to have kids then. So we took the proper precautions to avoid an unwanted pregnancy. It's not really that hard of a concept.

I think human reproductive education should be taught from a very early age. Reproduction should hold no more mystery than breathing.

I don't understand why you think the analogy is disingenuous -- it's exactly as genuine as the original sentiment.

If we can't allow people to have secondary birth control options I don't understand why we'd allow them to have secondary tire options either. Clearly if you need either one you weren't properly prepared for the original activity and we should therefore punish you by making you do a disproportionate amount of work. It will teach you a lesson; something about how backups are attempts to thwart God's plans or unwanted children are the happiest children -- I forget the details but I'm sure it's important.

No because having sex under age 18 is a crime (in California) so if you give your children things that enable them to have sex(breaking the law) that meets the definition of contributing to the delinquency. This would not be applicable to Dr.'s due to medical privilege laws.....but could definitely be applied to parents

Having Plan B on hand is something you use if the condom breaks, or if a woman realizes she forgot to take her pill that day or throws up a pill the next morning. It's the epitome of personal responsibility to have Plan B available if your primary preparations fail. Jesus, this is just another tool for being responsible and preventing the bad consequences you're trying to get your kids to avoid with the condoms and regular birth control pills.

If you're such a crappy parent that you can't possible explain how to properly use Plan B when giving your kid access to it, it's not our fault.

I hope, before they get old enough for this to become an issue, that you mature a little and realize that even the children of good parents will make mistakes from time to time, some of those mistakes will be big. It doesn't make you a bad parent.

In my opinion "Well, you were too dumb to do what I told you, the baby is your consequence!" is horrible parenting.

Theaetetus: philotech: Damn... How did I become the center of this thread...

\\Where can I find a religious zealot farker to step in here?

I thought you were one, with the whole "I'll physically assault a doctor who talks to my daughter about issues with her body without my consent! I own that body!" thing.


I think you ran passed my intended point. Let me restate it. He can talk to her all he wants about her body and how it works, I draw the line when he goes from how to prevent a pregnancy to how to end one.

jst3p: philotech: If they were dumb enough to ignore my advice on taking the pill and using condoms with spermicidal lubricant, they are gonna get a fast lesson on personal responsibility.
