BigBooper: Grapple: Teens have sex. Get over it.

Recognizing that teens have sex, does not mean that we should be handing out abortion pills like a pedo hands out free candy.


Morning after pill is NOT the abortion pill. You're thinking of RU486.

Morning after pill stops the egg from being fertilized It does not terminate a pregnancy (which is why you need to take it the "morning after" or at least within a couple of days because there is only a short window of time between sex and fertilization).

Once the egg has been fertilized, taking the pill won't do a damn thing.

Heard from a friend of a friend....

"They should put something in the water that would not allow either partner to allow the egg to be fertilized... then when you want to become pregnant, BOTH of the parents would be required to take a pill to disable the pregger blocker".

Good idea if you ask me.

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.

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.

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.

How is it not personal responsibility to take this pill? It seems eminently responsible to me.

kbronsito: why not just add the morning after pill to lite beer and wine coolers?

Cythraul: From: Dad
To: Daddy's Little Whore


A joke, but there's tons of people who see providing their kids with healthy non-shady resources like this as tantamount to encouraging prostitution. Bums me out, let humans be themselves and be smart about it instead of plunging your ears and pretending your kids are special.

My gf in HS had a pill script and it was basically the best thing ever. I still wore a condom when I had one available though just because I was terrified of being a dad in HS like a few of my classmates became, wanted to live it up solo-style until at least age 28.

Or you could say; What's wrong with you people? Can't you stop farking for 5 minutes? Or at least find a more permanent solution then the morning after pill?
