    Under doctor's orders, maybe...but not 'available' as in go to the corner and buy them. Between rampant STDs and other sexual problems, sex traffic, and prostitution, the young girls have nothing impeding an aggressor or abuser from respecting them. This does more harm than good. In many, their bodies are still developing..... who knows what this might do to their entire system ot what habits of abuse it will encourage.

    So when one of these little girls takes this and has a bad reaction, should the judge be held liable? He is practicing medicine without a license. He way overstepped his job description.

    At $40-$50 a pill I don't see little girls getting access to them. Weak point you made

    You sure about that? You assume these little girls are from poor households or that the male she might be messing with won't pay for it. Talk about weak.

    This Judge has overstepped his boundaries, Judges do not MAKE laws, or prescribe medication.

    He should be removed from office immediately.

    It took me awhile to decide that I agree.

    A girl can be impregnated at an early age. She can be impregnated completely against her will, by a guardian, a teacher, a care taker, or a complete stranger.

    Said girl shouldn't need someone's permission to get that morning after pill. She most certainly shouldn't need the permission of the person who impregnated her.

    I have reservations, but bottom line, if women are going to have control over their procreation, then they need control when they reach sexual maturity - not when society finally decides that she's mentally and/or emotionally mature.

    The implication that a young girl who has become pregnant somehow has 'control' over her body is alarming. The whole problem is that she does NOT! And having the abuser rush her to the corner to get the pills, or worse yet, have someone tell her a month later she could have done it, is not about to help her gain it! For her to have control, she needs to be educated to respect her body and let NO FOREIGN objects or persons enter where they do not belong. When they do, she needs to know there are 'safe places' and people, not PILLS, which will lead her to and find protection. No one is watching out for these girls; everyone is just saying, well, if it happens, let's do this or that! We need to be saying 'it DOES NOT happen! and find a way to make it so! What a sad state we are.
    For decades, many mothers 'pimp out' their own daughters, underage, to HAVE children and collect welfare. Any idea how those girls' moms are going to react when she continues NOT to be pregnant. Talk about increased violence.
    I understand the quandry...but an introduction to the real lives of abused women would be helpful for all of us.

    STOP this insanity....and this is not the way....
    Will we ever get back to practicing 'preventive' measures? Or are we just going to continue our pattern of caring for the increasing number of victims because no one will stand up and call it WRONG!
    Respectfully, truly....
