I dont like this being made OTC for young girls, fine with it for those over 18. I just believe a girl between 12-18 should have somebody helping her with something like this.

No, I would call that a miscarriage, not an abortion, because I didn't cause it or choose it. Many many people have early miscarriages without ever knowing they had concieved. And yes, I'm aware that the "medical community" doesn't technically consider it a pregnancy until the egg implants....but science is not my God and I believe the medical community is wrong I'm sure that makes me too uneducated to debate with.
And no, Melissa, the rude way you talk to people that don't agree with you doesn't offend me anymore. I just feel sorry for you, actually.

If you admit you are uneducated about this, why are you still debating? Or are you being sarcastic?
Either way. If you believe what God says you probably believe condoms are wrong, too, right? Doesn't god yell at somebody for spilling their seed when they were sleeping with their wives servant or something? I feel like I remember something like that. Coitus interruptus. That would be logical to me. I would agree that that position is consistent. I feel like the catholic church is really the only fair position on BC. To block conception via condoms is no different than to block is via BC, to me. Its still stopping Gods will and preventing conception. Stopping life. Like an abortion pill, really.
Then either :
A. They aren't using condoms at all so that is still going to happen and no one would know about it.
B. They are using condoms to prevent stds and pregnancy and know the precautions to take and know to take plan b. I'm assuming if they are responsible for the first 2 they are responsible to speak to a doctor, PP, a school nurse etc. about possible std.s

If she's been raped, then yes, she should tell someone. And I think that message needs to come from parents before the rape happens, not when she shows up at a drugstore looking for Plan B. I think the instinct for most parents is to shelter their young girls from the reality that they might be voilated, but I'm not sure that's a good idea. I want my daughter to know that she can always say no, to anyone even a boyfriend, and she can change her mind, and that if anyone touches her in a sexual way that she doesn't want, that I will get her the help she needs. And the most immediately important help IMHO would be to keep her from getting pregnant from it.
