It's easy to get condoms, should it be easy to get the morning after pill as well?

imagine what younger children are thinking?!

"oh look i can just take this pill and no more baby!"

    typical lame-biased question ... if you seriously want to know what people think, why not provide options so that all points of view can be expressed equally easily ... if you want everybody to agree with you, why not just go into the bathroom, lock the door and rub one out ... it's the same thing, basically

    Take the responsibility BEFORE sex, not after. If you can't have sex responsibly, you don't need to be having sex.

    First of all, people need to realize that emergency contraceptives are NOT a form of birth control. They are a last resort for when your other options fail. They are not meant to be used regularly.
    And where I live it IS pretty easy to get it. A bit expensive (between $35-$40) but available in drugstores. For places who have more restricted acces, I think those restrictions should be removed. We should educate kids that yes, while this IS an option, it is NOT an actual method of birth control and the effects of using it long term are not yet known.
    Finally, I doubt most kids would do that because it is not entirely effective. Not as reliable as using condoms or the pill. Also, it's effectiveness varies depending on how long afterward you take it. Not the most convenient option.

    i understand your view of sex before marriage.. it was definitley something that was looked highly on a while ago but at this point in time i feel it'd be impossible. for some reason kids just feel that their parents are wrong and their rules are too strict. they don't understand the reasoning behind it (maybe its because it was never really explained) but yea, i feel women need to realy understand whats going on before they start opening their legs. you said it great though :)

    How about MEN keeping it in their pants longer than 30 seconds...why is always the woman's responsibility...I am sick of that...Men need far more responsibility in that department...

    The fact is that kids are having sex at even younger ages than before. Nobody has yet figured out how to stop this. So then, in the face of this reality on-the-ground, you have to ask yourself what's worse: taking the morning-after-pill that they've used happily in Europe for like 30 years or more, or allowing unwanted babies to be born to teenagers.

    but thats why we have planned parenthood, wouldn't opening this door just show them how easy it is to close it as well? and maybe i should do a different post, but i dont think having sex as young as they are isn't going to mentally or emotionaly healthy either, i know that sex before you're conscciously ready can have effects later in life as well.. but thank you for your opion :)

    I agree that sex before you're ready can have adverse effects. But the thing is, you can't pinpoint what age it is that a person is ready. We are all individuals; we can't be lumped together like that. Someone might be ready at 15 while another might not be ready until 30.

    what are you talking about? do you realize that it'd be easier (for example) someone with your personality to be like "oh just go buy the pill later" because how many guys really want to wear a condom if they don't have to? plus ive seen disgusting articles where guys have HIV and they won't even tell their one night stand.... we have planned parenthood why do we need over the counter?

    but aren't people like you doing the best they can to defund Planned Parenthood completely?

    and WTF do you mean "someone with your personality"? my personality? i'm professionally educated ... 30 year career, married 30 years, father of two adult sons, both of whom are Eagle Scouts and either college-educated or in the process of becoming college-educated

    and yes i don't use condoms when the wife and i are fcuking because we're past the age of reproduction ...

    consider trying to be a little more thoughtful when posting questions rather than just being one of those mindless martinets that parrot partisan talking points and post questions that do nothing but make your fellow-travelers think that everybody in the world agrees with them ... mental masturbation is what you're doing here, for people who can't find someone to masturbate with ...

    listen here, chick: this is what you posted:

    "what are you talking about? do you realize that it'd be easier (for example) SOMEONE WITH YOUR PERSONALITY to be like 'oh just go buy the pill later' because how many guys really want to wear a condom if they don't have to?" [all caps to redirect your attention to your own words]

    i did not say i'm 30 - you aren't paying attention - what i wrote was "30 year career, married 30 years" ... and i intentionally misspelled the "f-word"

    maybe we've gotten off the the wrong start ... but YES - i favor the OTC morning after pill ...

    I doubt younger children are thinking about the morning after pill much. I don't think it needs to be kept under lock and key, but it shouldn't be available OTC, as using emergency contraceptives in non-emergency situations can be quite harmful. The FDA as far as I know doesn't actually have control of the morning after pill, it's just something that requires a doctors visit to receive.

    Do you realize that "most" means more than half, and as such your statement is grossly inaccurate?

    I think that you should do a bit more research in to the topic at hand.

    And I'm sure it's a lovely class. But you don't seem to know much about the availability of the drug in question.

    also take in to consideration that a lot of younger girls aren't going to say "mom add me to the statistic!!" here's one site, since i feel you need proof.

    In 2009, 46% of high school students had sexual intercourse and 13.8% had four or more sex partners during their life. Prior to the sexual activity, 21.6% drank alcohol or used drugs. Only 38.9% used a condom.
    CDC

    now if you really want to count that extra 4% then you can, but from my own experience and observations i can guarantee that a newer study would jump that statistic up. I know at least 20 girls in my area between 15-18 who have already had sex. also, again, statistics are only done on those willing to participate.

    "most girls are having sex by 15" and you want to make it more difficult for them to avoid opregnancy? you're quite a guy ...

    are you planning to invite all the unwed pregnant teenaged girls into your home to live out the rest of their maternity and then clothe and feel them and their babies until the babies are 18 years old? no? then get the fcuk out of the way of people who are trying to make things better (even if they can't make things perfect)

    if they are too embarrassed to walk into planned parenthood and ask for pills or condoms, what makes you think they are ready for sex?

    if their reproductive organs are functional they are ready for sex whether or not you think so or approve ... they exist independently of all of us and our opinions

    being shy around adults does not mean that they will be shy around each other ... maybe you don't know many adolescents ...

    i have no idea how you voted - does is show how you voted?

    since you posted something apparently condemning availability of the OCT morning after pill",

    i doubt we voted the same, becase, as i've said above, "i favor the [edit] availability of the [end edit] OTC morning after pill"
