The Morning After Pill Now Over-The-Counter: The On The Fence Debate
Well my fellow parents, the FDA announced yesterday that “the morning after pill” will now be available to teenaged girls 15 and over without a prescription.
Which leads me to the big ON THE FENCE questions today: How many more STDs (possibly life threatening) will this lead to? How much more teen promiscuity will now follow? How “safe” will our teens’ sex really be now? How much abuse of this moring after pill will occur? It’s an attempt to erradicate unwanted teenage pregnancies, but is it smart?
It’s what some are calling a positive step in the right direction, and others are calling a frightening green light. I would love to hear your thoughts…
