The manufacturers of the Plan B pill are trying to force the hand of the FDA to approve the morning after pill for over-the-counter sales to persons of any age.
If this happens, say goodbye to one more right you have as a parent.
Picture this: your daughter stops at the drug store on her way home from school one day. When she gets home she takes a swig of Diet coke and chugs down a pill that will end a possible early pregnancy.
Imagine that your daughter was pressured into relations by a boy at her school. Imagine that he purchased the pill and coerced her to take it.
Imagine the dozens of scenarios that could play out as a result of any girl -- as young as age 11 -- being able to obtain this pill without her parent's knowledge. Imagine the possible dangerous side effects that she could experience as a result -- side effects of which you would have no understanding.
Imagine the increased promiscuity as a result of fewer imagined consequences.
Imagine the long term destruction to all of those girls.
Imagine the millions of babies lost to corporate greed.
A girl is not a woman. This is not about a woman "having a right to control her own body." This is about stripping a parent's right to protect those children in their care.
