Kimothy: Good. Can't wait to see the fundies crying in their Cheerios over this one.
basemetal: Hell yeah, now you can roofie them at night
Red Shirt Blues: When do they start selling Viagra OTC? Seems like it would be a nice counterbalance.
Popcorn Johnny: So it's not legal for a 15 year old to consent to sex, but it's just fine if she buys a morning after pill without parental permission? Not really understanding the logic behind that decision.
Aarontology: Because they're two entirely different issues.
Popcorn Johnny: Aarontology: Because they're two entirely different issues.How so? Parents have the right to know what their kids are doing.
TheOnion: Also, it's legal for a 15 year old to have sex with another 15 year old.
Popcorn Johnny: TheOnion: Also, it's legal for a 15 year old to have sex with another 15 year old.That's not true in all states.
Popcorn Johnny: How so? Parents have the right to know what their kids are doing.
TheOnion: So are you in favor of banning the sale of contraception or the morning after pill to 15 year olds in that jurisdiction?Surely, you must agree that would cause more problems rather than solving them in terms of unplanned pregnancy and STD transmission, correct?
Popcorn Johnny: Parents have the right to know what their kids are doing.
Aarontology: Popcorn Johnny: How so? Parents have the right to know what their kids are doing.Because the age of consent has nothing to do with a person purchasing medicine. As far as the law is concerned, now that the morning after pill is OTC, it's not any different (legally) than the 15 year old buying Advil or Claratin.I get how they're connected in this context, but they're different laws governing different behavior.
Dimensio: [1.bp.blogspot.com image 346x369]I am utterly disgusted by this news. Only a monstrous sociopath could look upon the above image and not recognize the sight of a precious human life whose willful termination is premeditated murder.
Popcorn Johnny: That said, I don't agree with girls under the age of consent being able to purchase this without their parents knowledge. Maybe it should be that they don't need parental permission, but the parents are notified of the purchase after the fact.
gadian: How long until pharmacies and department stores refuse to carry it regardless?
Rincewind53: Popcorn Johnny: That said, I don't agree with girls under the age of consent being able to purchase this without their parents knowledge. Maybe it should be that they don't need parental permission, but the parents are notified of the purchase after the fact.Why? The only other analogy out there are states that require parental notice to get an abortion. Do you think Plan B is an abortifacient? It's not. It's emergency contraceptive, it prevents pregnancy from occuring, it doesn't terminate an already-existing pregnancy.Do you think parents should be notified when their children buy condoms?
Dr. Goldshnoz: You just watch, this is going to cause crime, destroy the innocence of our children, bring the wraith of god upon us, destroy american society, and cause the further advance the women's war on men.You just watch.
