Sadly there is no perfect answer to this. But I think access to the morning after pill this way will help.
ETA: Just because a mother is against abortion does not equal unsupportive. My mom was AWESOME in the sex area, could not have done a better job IMO. But she also made it very clear that abortion was not a choice she would ever find acceptable for us, unless we were raped. Because she was so open and helped so much with BC options we all avoided unwanted pregnancies. None of her 4 kids lacked for knowledge.

Luckily most children have fantastic access to that at public schools
I agree that the ideal scenario isn't handing over a pill. But the alternative isn't better. YES these girls need help, need someone to talk to, need information. . .but are they getting that now? Will giving them a pill make that happen any less than it's happening now? I don't think so. I think this helps one small piece of a very difficult problem. The rest still needs addressing.
I do not care if you or any other adult or even older teen takes the morning after pill. I do think a young teen should have to talk to someone before taking such a medicine.
