Good. Can't wait to see the fundies crying in their Cheerios over this one.
 
2013-04-30 06:32:17 PM
And the sound of conservative heads exploding was heard throughout the land.

Just think how many abortions this will prevent.  Surely the anti-abortionists will be rejoicing at this news.

Hell yeah, now you can roofie them at night and Plan B them in the morning.

When do they start selling Viagra OTC? Seems like it would be a nice counterbalance.

Now that's some good news.

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.

Because they're two entirely different issues.

How so? Parents have the right to know what their kids are doing.

Should we also ban the purchase of contraception?

Also, it's legal for a 15 year old to have sex with another 15 year old.  And they do it all the time without worrying much about the law (and would continue to do so even if it were illegal).  Since this is going to happen anyway, we would at least like to limit the number of children produced from the activity.

Minors still have a right to have control over their own body and their own future.

What about the parents who force the girl to have the kid against her will?

Sex is gonna happen. It's nature.

Frankly, I'd rather a 15 year old girl buy a morning after pill and avoid pregnancy all together than end up having a kid she can't take care of because she was too busy trying to hide everything from her parents or because her parents are fundie asshats that force her to have go through with the pregnancy rather help her get an abortion.

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?

First, in most states, it's legal under many circumstances.
Second, your analogy is flawed. It's like saying "It's illegal for felons to own guns, therefore felons should be unable to receive medical treatment if they accidentally shoot themselves with a gun."
 
2013-04-30 07:34:05 PM

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.

If it was up to me, we would have one age of consent for the entire country. Seems silly that what you do in one state makes you a rapist in another. 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.

How long until pharmacies and department stores refuse to carry it regardless?

Which is why all other consumer transactions involving minors require parental consent?

Would you rather see a theoretical and fantasy gain of the parental knowledge (also theoretically preventing this teen sex in this fantasy), which is just going to lead to children foregoing protection and having unprotected sex, or would you rather see the real world gain of fewer STDs and unplanned teen pregnancy?

I prefer making the real world better.  If you prefer fantasy, maybe you should sit down and rethink things.

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?

I assume it will be sold next to 5 Hour Energy at the Kwikee Mart.

The government is moving the morning-after pill over the counter but only those 15 and older can buy it -- an attempt to find middle ground just days before a court-imposed deadline to lift all age restrictions on the emergency contraceptive.

Federal Judge:  You are hereby ordered to do XYZ.
FDA: OK, lets just do X instead.
(Next week) Federal Judge:  Perhaps you didn't hear me clearly...

The thing to remember here, kids, is that pissing against the wind just makes you piss-covered. What you should be doing is pissing against the wind into a receptacle of some kind. Abstinence is goddamn stupid what with those hormones we've got so, as a right-to-center libertarian, I approve this idea wholeheartedly.

My wife is a conservative and she also approves. If kids are gonna be stupid no matter what, we may as well do something useful for them rather then talking about not being stupid.

Don't go giving him ideas.

Really - don't. If he's anything like a standard-model conservative his brain's already at capacity.  Shoving something new in one ear only causes something else they used to know to leak out the other.

I don't think so. According to Pat Robertson and the late (yay!) Jerry Falwell, homos are to blame for all those things. Homos and lezzies. Homos, lesbians, and pagans. Homos, lesbians, pagans, and...oh forget it.  Let's just call it "everyone who doesn't watch Pat Robertson".

Of equal concern is the confusion that will result in what percentage of crime, destruction of innocence, wrath of god, destruction of society and advancement of the war on men is a result of this move by the Food and Drug Administration, and what percentage of those calamities are a result of same-sex marriage.
