mayIFark: I just don't understand one thing about this pills: If I fark during lunch break, why do I have to wait 'til the next morning to use it?


You don't have to, it just goes great with a Bloody Mary or Mimosa

If you're gonna stop things, best to stop things before they even get to the blastocyst stage, I say.

AWESOME!!!!!

This means less abortions and teen pregnancy!

RKade: 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.


I liked everything about this.

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


Not if the kids are 18 or older. HIPAA specifically forbids that. Even if the kids are still under their parent's insurance, the parents do not have a legal right to find out what treatment their child receives.

Tumunga: Nope, the guvment is taking care of your kids now. Didn't you get the memo?


The government not overly regulating people's medical decisions and consumer transactions, nor conducting surveillance over children, is "taking care of your kids now"?

Well, that's probably the end of the FDA as we know it. Conservatives will completely destroy the agency, just like they did with the SEC and the EPA

Soon as Pfizer™ runs out of bribe money to keep the price up at prescription levels.

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


About as long as it will take pharmacies and department stores to stop being capitalists, I imagine. A few establishments in "Deliverance" Bible Belt towns notwithstanding.

kindda good. There should be no age restriction.

Cool.  Now, instead of having long arguments about abortion all I have to do is serve them breakfast.

Rincewind53: 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.


I know what it does, thanks.

Just out of curiosity: how does a 15-year-old prove their age?

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.


I thought all that was due to either single mother homes or homosexuality.

Not defending the guy, but his argument concerned 15 year-olds. Last time I checked, 15 was less than 18.

You know it isn't a zero-sum game.... right?

Girls and women who use this and who get abortions can go onto have children. Kids they maybe wouldn't have had if they were forced to have this one. Kids they in all likelihood will be better equipped to raise, since studies show women tend to make good judgements as to whether or not they can afford a child when they have an abortion. But no, lost kids.

U.S. District Judge Edward Korman of New York blasted the Obama administration for imposing the age-17 limit

 And now the Obama administration can't get the morning-after-being-blasted pill, it's only 4 years old!

Ha, ha, only joking.  We like to have fun here.  I'll just continue RTFA...


Half the nation's pregnancies every year are unintended

TheShavingofOccam123: Kimothy: Good. Can't wait to see the fundies crying in their Cheerios over this one.

Just wait for all those high moral cashiers who refuse to check out any item they find morally objectionable.


Actually that's a quick way to law suite for either gender or age discrimination.  The only options they have is to not carry it (dunno what came from that one case), price gouge or to simply stock so little it is always sold out

The one thing to remember if its OTC: ha ha no insurance discount for you, pay the full price sucker

So then I go back to my other question. Do you think condoms should require parental permission/notification? Condoms and Plan B do the same things, just at different times.

TheOnion: 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.

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.


You are assuming that a 15 yr old has the brains to make that decision. I highly doubt it. There is a reason why they can't drive, vote or drink legally at that age.

If you want to abort, you have to take Methotrexate.

/take 15mg of Methotrexate each week.

So a thirteen year old in Canada can just walk up to the pharmacy counter and buy Plan B, no questions asked?

Ah yes, the argument from potential. So the idea is that more people on the planet is inherently good, regardless of Earth's ability to support them? By that logic every fertile woman who refuses to have sex with me is a baby killer.

FILL THE PLANET ELBOW-TO-ELBOW WITH HUMANS!

CaptSacto: And the sound of conservative heads exploding was heard throughout the land.


...the freepers are moaning about how they need to show ID to get sudafed but kids can get RU-486 without a prescription.

One person noted that Plan B is not RU-486 and was ignored.

Right.   No one great ever grew up under difficult circumstances.

See, while this will legitimately help some people, I know from seeing it firsthand at pharmacies in, shall we say, the less reputable neighborhoods of Providence, that there are people that will go in almost every other week to buy said drugs.  You'd think the girl would just tell the guys to use a condom or it's an extra $50.

\then again, same store had an issue with some crackhead coming in and literally shiatting all over the bathroom
\\it's easily the store I miss the least

Kimothy: Good. Can't wait to see the fundies crying in their Cheerios over this one.


It's not quite a total victory, unfortunately, as the 15-or-older with ID limit is still in place. It'll be a proper victory when that age limit and ID requirement is lifted, and you can buy this like you'd buy aspirin.

Given our population demands, anything that avoids unwanted pregnancy should be as free as friggin' water at this point. But, again, there are knuckle-draggers that want to ensure that women who have sex out of wedlock are treated as less than human, and so they won't let something like this go without a fight.

How much brain do you need to decide whether you should bear a child at 15?

No he isn't.  He's (correctly) recognizing the fact that nothing is going to stop 15 year olds from farking.  This will reduce the number of pregnancies which will result.  There is no evidence or reason to believe that it will increase underage sex.
