    Amazing!  Now you are disobeying your own church which opposes emergency contraception for females of any age, including rape victims and women guaranteed death by their next pregnancy.  Were you absent that day in religion class?

    catholic.

    many catholic women use birth control.

  • give-em-hell-mary

    But your church just forced death on a non-Catholic woman in Ireland and it opposes Catholic women using birth control even if additional pregnancies will kill them!  You’re not paying attention to Mass homilies and Catholic sex ed!

    It doesn’t make sense to limit this by age when actually the important thing is whether or not the girl is able to become pregnant.  Girls who are menstruating should have this available to them in case they are raped, without having to fear any requirement to jump through morality hoops at the neighborhood pharmacy when they’re already distraught.

    the age of consent.would you want it given to your 6 year old?

  • crowepps

    If she’s menstruating and has been raped, you betcha!  For absolute certain sure, I wouldn’t want my 6 year old to get pregnant!

    I got my period at 11.  Girls are able to get pregnant at very young ages.  If they are old enough to get pregnant, they are old enough to decide not to be pregnant.

    Emergency contraception for teens, Plan B

    By Michael Yudell

    In a move sure to rankle anti-birth control activists, the American Academy of Pediatrics, one of the nation’s foremost expert groups on child and adolescent health, recommended Monday that its members provide emergency contraception to “teenagers in immediate need” and also write prescriptions, in advance, for emergency contraception “for teenagers to have on hand in case of future need.” The move seeks to skirt a federal ban on over-the-counter sales of emergency contraception to girls under 17 and to educate physicians on the use, safety and efficacy of these pills.


    This is good public health.
