The Food and Drug Administration said Tuesday that it would make the most widely known morning-after pill available without a prescription to girls and women ages 15 and older, and also make the pill available on drugstore shelves, instead of keeping it locked up behind pharmacy counters.
Until this decision the pill, Plan B One-Step, which is used after sexual intercourse to help prevent pregnancy, was available without a prescription only for ages 17 and older.HMMM, SO LET ME GET THIS STRAIGHT:
A 15 YEAR OLD GIRL CAN GET AN ABORTIFACIENT PILL WITHOUT A PRESCRIPTION AND WITHOUT PARENTAL APPROVAL!?
BUT IF 15 YEAR OLD GIRL NEEDS IT, THEN SHE'S BEEN A VICTIM OF STATUTORY RAPE.
IN A WAY, THIS FDA RULING MAKES STATUTORY RAPE MORE ACCEPTABLE AND LET'S THE RAPIST OFF SCOTT FREE.
TO GET THE PILL IT OUGHT TO BE REQUIRED SHE FILL OUT A NOTARIZED AFFIDAVIT STATING WHO THE RAPIST IS SO HE CAN BE CHARGED.
