    Plan to Widen Availability of Morning-After Pill Is Rejected

    http://www.nytimes.com/2011/12/08/he...s.html?_r=1&hp

    WASHINGTON For the first time ever, the Health and Human Services secretary publicly overruled the Food and Drug Administration, refusing Wednesday to allow emergency contraceptives to be sold over the counter, including to young teenagers. The decision avoided what could have been a bruising political battle over parental control and contraception during a presidential election season.
    Not every human is a manipulative, opportunistic, letch... or at least that's what I'm told.

    Should be up to the states to decide.

    A minority of Mississippi must be beyond pleased with this measure.

    Wait a few days, as this is a extremely touchy subject that can inflame people no matter what is said, i have little doubt that representatives of Florida will speak out with the most moronic thing humanly possible. Just give it time.

    I agree for the most part concerning childhood "emancipation". IMO it should be when you start trying kids as adults, 15 and under in NC, at lest for this instance. Thus sixteen year olds should have access without a prescription just as seventeen and over mandated by the federal government.

    If the individual is old enough. 16 and under is definitely pushing it. At that age the parents and doctors should be involved.

    Ms. Sebelius countered that the drug’s manufacturer had failed to study whether girls as young as 11 years old could safely use Plan B.

    I agree. It's really about what age do you get to make that decision without a doctor or parents involved.

    Why should anybody decide over that? Shouldn't you of all people cry for the freedom to decide what a woman can do with her life? Federal government? States? It still falls under to much government involvement into our private lives, isn't it?

    And if she is a teen: shouldn't the parents know whats best for their daughters?

    Didn't you read the part where I said the parents should be involved? Or did your hate get the best of you again? Isn't this what you guys want? A strong central government deciding what's best for the 50 states in the republic. This should be in issue for the states to decide. That's how our country is set up.
