James!: If it's as bad as you say then the pharmacist/drug store cashier is just as risky.


Well, pharmacists aren't in the picture (the ruling takes them out of the equation). The only person that might impede the girl getting Plan B would be the store cashier. What are they going to do, say "No, you can't buy that?" Worst case scenario, she leaves the Walgreens and goes across the street to CVS to get it there (why are there always one of each of these right next to each other, btw?).

A parent or school counselor can fark up your life because they know you personally. And how an 11-year-old girl is going to see a doctor without their parent knowing is a mystery to me, but either way, it's still not advantageous.

James!: Theaetetus: James!: Theaetetus: [eyeroll]
When you're done with your hysterics, would you like to suggest a third option for a pregnant 11 year old? Or would you like to admit that you don't actually have anything to offer other than trolling?

Simple, she could speak to an adult.  Say a parent or school counselor or a doctor and have them procure plan B for her.

WHAAAAAAT?!! But YOU just said that there were OTHER options than Plan B, abortion, or labor!! HOW CAN THIS BEEEEEEE?!! WHAT KIND OF GOD WOULD ALLOW YOU TO BE SUCH A DOUCHE!?!?

Anyways, fark off, you trolling piece of shiat.

Oh so you don't know what anyone is talking about.  The question, friend, is if an 11 year old should be able to buy it by herself.  We are talking about an age restriction at 15.

Unless it gets your rocks off to come into a thread and completely miss what everyone else is talking about and then flame them.


Nice try, troll. You never raised that as an issue - you specifically said that there were other options for dealing with pregnancy, not that she could do the same option in a different way. It's not my fault that you're an imbecile who wanted to make a different argument than he actually did.

In the event that every authority figure in a girl's life is ready to turn on her just for being teen pregnant she has a serious set of problems beyond.  But you are painting yourself into a pretty strict hypothetical.

Target Builder: cman: Why is the Obama administration fighting this?

He's a lot more conservative than a lot of people, conservatives and liberals, think he is.


This was my first thought.

Muta: HotWingConspiracy: Peter von Nostrand: cman: Why is the Obama administration fighting this?

Trolling Republicans

Wait...because republicans are trolling, or he's trolling republicans?

Obama is trying to get Republicans to oppose his opposition to the morning after pill.  Tomorrow we'll see Cantor arguing that the pill needs to be given away to all girls at school.


This is what I hope it is.

/let's see if the Republicans stick to their "Party of NO!" stance

Which is why I like to avoid the hypothetical entirely, and would advocate that any girl of any age who gets pregnant should be free to choose to take Plan B when and if they want to. Parent's religious beliefs/personal opinions should have nothing to do with it.

Oh you get pretty into personal attacks when you're lost.

Did you perhaps read the article?  The issue did not need to be raised beyond it being THE farkING POINT OF CONTENTION BETWEEN THE FDA AND THE COURTS.  Judge says no age restrictions, FDA says 15.  I assumed you didn't need that spelled out to you, but obviously I was giving you too much credit.

Right, I'm not even sure where I land on the question.  On the one hand if an 11 year old is getting pregnant I'd hope that someone would be looking into how and if she's being harmed in any way, on the other hand I understand where you're coming from as well.

At the end of the day I am glad it isn't my decision to make.

Tomahawk513: TofuTheAlmighty: Lost Thought 00: 100% of the blame goes to Obama for this

I genuinely have no idea why he's pursuing this. Obama cannot be so knuckledraggingly stupid that he thinks GOPers will lend him support because he makes birth control harder to get. (Same as with the ramped up deportations and cannabis prosecutions.)

This is like watching your favorite team make some boneheaded play and cost themselves the game.  I don't know what the heck he's thinking with this.  He could singlehandedly reduce unemployment to 4%, increase middle class wealth, and bring peace and secular stability to the Middle East and Republicans still wouldn't have the decency to piss on his leg if it was on fire.  I don't know what his thought process is behind this one.  I'm really disappointed.


Because he's authoritarian, a conservative, and a corporate whore?  Just like 99% of all politicians we've elected?

Speaking from personal experience:

I was 14 when I went to get contraception (BC pills) at the student health center at the community college I attended. I had a great conversation with the nurse, who informed me that while I would need parental consent for a TB test, I could get the birth control pills without. I did, however, have to get a gyn exam, which cost $40, and the pills were $6 a month. BF at the time paid for all of it.

I did actually ask my mother beforehand to get them for me, and she said no. Keep in mind we're in California, and we're both pretty liberal, so it's not like she was doing it out of any religious concern (we're both atheists).

I'm now almost 30. I don't have kids, and thank farking god.

So yeah, can we just be honest about the fact that kids are gonna get curious about their bodies? I remember having very clear sexual thoughts at 5, as in, actually wanting to have sex, not just "Ooh, you have different parts than me!" Why the fark are we insisting that they be punished for life for curiosity?

/really tired of this "one mistake and you're done for life" shtick. I blame the internet in general and Facebook in specific.

James!: Did you perhaps read the article?


Let's rewind and review the tape. Here, we see my post, quoting from the article:

Theaetetus: The FDA actually had been poised to lift all age limits and let Plan B sell over the counter in late 2011, when Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius overruled her own scientists. Sebelius said some girls as young as 11 were physically capable of bearing children but shouldn't be able to buy the pregnancy-preventing pill on their own.

... because 11 year olds who have sex should be forced to get pregnant? What kind of sick fark wants pregnant 11 year olds?


And then we see your post:

James!: Basically if an 11 year old can't walk into a pharmacy and buy plan B no questions asked there are no alternatives for her and she will have to have the child.  It's a cruel world.


But you really were suggesting that the 11 year old should take plan B, and I'm the one being obtuse for not recognizing you were really talking about age restrictions?

Here's the thing... "troll" is not a personal attack. It's an apt description for your posts. Particularly the three in a row with nothing of substance, but just the fake hysteria and concern. Don't want to be a troll? Then argue with people over issues, rather than just being a douche.

Look at the bold bit.  Do you see it? Did you understand it?

Second, no one is obligated to take you seriously or respond the way you want them to.  You flew into a tantrum because I wouldn't engage you in the way you though I should.  I assume that you are an adult in the real world and you don't behave that way.  But I assumed earlier that you knew what the thread was about, so who knows.

Uh dude, the court decision is that young girls of any age don't NEED to see a physician, or even speak to a pharmacist, to buy the morning after pill.  I'm all for "a woman's health is hers and her doctor's concern only" but that's not what this is about.

At the same time, I really don't think we should be giving out hormonal birth control anything without even a consult with the pharmacist, but I do understand how young girls might be too intimidated to ask.


OTOH, if an 11 year old has unprotected sex, whether willingly or unwillingly, and has the intelligence to understand the ramifications AND can get to a drug store...just sell her the damn stuff already.  Yes, yes, yes, we ALL hope 11 year olds aren't having sex, but that's not the reality of our world now, is it?

I am a huge fan of Plan B (which, by the way, will not abort a fertilized egg). I am an even huger fan of having it OTC and out where I don't have to ask a pharmacist for it. But I get the issue with age.

While I think 15 (what the law would allow) is probably an okay age, there is some danger that young girls will use this like regular birth control. It shouldn't be. If a girl is using Plan B each time she has sex, it will mess with her periods. Plan B should be use when there's a failure with primary birth control, like when a condom breaks or when you realize you forgot to take your pill at the regular time. Plan B is not meant to replace regular birth control.

Here's the issue, though. For most young girls, getting birth control means getting parental consent. It was not always like that. In the 1970s, when I was in high school, girls could go to Planned Parenthood and get a prescription. The nurse at Planned Parenthood would explain the rules - the pill is only effective when taken every day and at the same time every day. Don't trust the pill for birth control safety until you've had at least two periods while on the pill. The best part? Mom and Dad did not have to know. Sure, Mom might have been cool with it, or you might end up grounded and your parents might call the cops on your boyfriend. Or worse. We changed the laws in the 1980s (a huge mistake). Girls still have sex, but they have more risky sex.

So, along comes Plan B. Unlike the pill, you can get Plan B without parental permission. Also, there's no nurse to explain things, like there was at Planned Parenthood. So, how much of a chance do you think there is for abuse of Plan B among high school girls? My experience as a former high school girl says there's a damned good chance. Of course, the smart thing to do wouldn't be to continue to restrict access. The smart thing to do would be a public health campaign and good sex education. But, honestly, how much of a chance do you think the president has pushing that through?

DeaH: While I think 15 (what the law would allow) is probably an okay age, there is some danger that young girls will use this like regular birth control. It shouldn't be. If a girl is using Plan B each time she has sex, it will mess with her periods. she will be vomiting, and cramping in horrible agony.


FTFY. Before being concerned that young girls will "use this like regular birth control," you should probably look up the side effects of Plan B. Unlike regular birth control, it causes nausea, cramping, headaches, dizziness, and onset of menstruation. There's a reason they're not Plan A, and even if someone thinks that using them as birth control is a wonderful idea, they're going to change their mind the first time they take them.
Not to mention that they're $50 a pop.

In short, this whole "but what about the childrens!" problem is a manufactured one. It's not real. There's no need for the age restriction, and there are many good reasons  not to have an age restriction, the most important one being that if there is an 11 year old that just had unprotected sex, you want them to get access to Plan B as fast as possible. Not a month later after their parents refuse to buy it for them and they had to go to a judge, not weeks later after they work up the courage to talk to their parents, not even days later when they talk to the school nurse. You have 12 hours.

heinekenftw: Here's what I don't get.  The conservatives rail against welfare, but then they rail against systems that would limit the number of children being placed in the welfare system (contraception, abortion.)

It doesn't make sense.


It doesn't make sense because they are inconsistent and irrational.

When it comes to Sex, the attitude is that if you're having sex outside of marriage, you should be Punished. If you get pregnant, that's God Punishing you for being a slut. If you have an STD, that's God punishing you. Therefore contraception and abortion are ways of being a whore and avoiding your Punishment. Sex ed is all about teaching kids to avoid STDs and pregnancy, which is again, teaching them to avoid being PUNISHED.

It's the same reason they can rail against Abortion, but as soon as that child is born, they don't give two shiats about the child's health or education. It's all about forcing the whores to be punished for being whores. If that child was important, then they would be all for care, feeding, etc.

You see the "if something bad happens to you, then you deserved it" come up in their policy towards the poors. The poor are poor because they're lazy and stupid and God didn't want them to be rich. The Rich are rich because they're skilled and God is rewarding them.

cman: Why is the Obama administration fighting this?


Defending separation of powers.  A district judge ordered an executive agency implement a rule of his own creation.  DoJ is saying that, at most, the judge could only block the FDA rule.
 
2013-05-02 05:27:53 PM
FTA: "
The order by U.S. District Judge Edward Korman of New York would allow girls and women of any age to buy not only Plan B but its cheaper generic competition as easily as they can buy aspirin. Korman gave the FDA 30 days to comply, and the Monday deadline was approaching fast.

In Wednesday's filing, the Justice Department said Korman exceeded his authority and that his decision should be suspended while that appeal is under way, meaning only Plan B One-Step would appear on drugstore shelves until the case is finally settled."

Drug company called Obama to complain about allowing generic version to be sold and to remember the big campaign contributions they gave him?
