    Its not " commonly known as the abortion pill" except amongst uneducated people's or those with an agenda.

    What Melissa said. It's not the abortion pill. It's a higher concentrated dose of bcp.

    I'm okay with this. We make condoms available to people without a prescription. Young women need access to preventive measures. I'm not understanding the coercion comment either...is that really a concern?

    Regardless if you think this is abortion or not, I do not believe that you should be able to buy it over the counter. Especially not at 12 or 13. You can not buy birth control pills over the counter, why would you be able to buy a higher concentrated dose of bcp over the counter?

    I would think it's probably too late once you go through what you'd have to to get a prescription. The difference is timing. If you're going to be on regular birth control, you get a prescription because of how it affects your body over time. A one-off....this makes sense to me. The idea is to prevent teenage pregnancy.

    At my OB's office, you could call and get in to get this medicine same day. What other similar strength medicine with similar strength (Not exactly the same, but equal in level) could a 12 year old get without an adult knowing?

    Exactly what Laurie said. It's best effective within 24 hours of taking it. I have never been able to get into a docs that quickly unless I'm ill and I don't think they would consider this illness.

    yep. And believe it or not it isn't just those ****ty teens who need this! I needed it once after we had a bc slip up while I was nursing my third and I get pg too easily and didn't at all want to be pregnant. I called my OB in tears thinking that I would somehow have to get in there w all three kids as Dh had gone out of town that am. I was SO relieved to discover it was an OTC drug and I could easily obtain it!

    You have to be 18 and speak to a pharmacist in order to get some cough medicines. Someone 12 or 13 years old is not old enough to understand the consequences of taking a medicine, or even for that matter, old enough to be sure they are taking the proper dose.

    In some States, it is not legal for someone under age 12 to be home alone, but it would be ok for them to go to the store and buy the morning after pill?

    It would be ok for some man to continously rape a young girl but no one finds out because there is no red flag going up that a child that young needs BC? We can deal with adults and older teenagers wanting this in another debate. This law is saying that 11, 12, 13 year old girls can purchase the morning after pill without speaking to anyone or anyone knowing? This is very outrageous to me.

    Well, they could kill themselves by OD'ing on tylenol. They could buy diet pills. Or laxatives. Or condoms. They could buy ipecac syrup. They could get an actual abortion of a living fetus. What else do you want to know?
