The FDA has approved the 'morning after pill' for over-the-counter sales to women 18 and older. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/14497678/wid/11915773?GT1=8404 I don't have a daughter, but if I did, I would want her to have this.

I think this is giving young women a reason to now have unprotected sex and I am absolutely sure that it will increase the percentage of people who have transmitted diseases. I think that it should at least be administered by a doctor and that the age limit on it should be increased as well. I don't really agree with it. . . but oh well

Why does the responsibility for not transmitting sexual diseases rest on the woman? I would think that men would want to be disease free just as much as women.

Shhh

Maybe so she doesnt get pregnant... That would be the point of the pill

You mean so that she can stop being pregnant. In order to not get pregnant, I know of only one method that works with certainty.

Because we all do things we regret. I did. I know that I sweated out a few days one time when I was younger. You can say all you like about being careful, or using protectection, etc. But, condoms do break. And I won't even go near the rape/date rape issue.

Shhh

Incorrect once again. If you read any single article on this issue you would realize this pill is not like the RU-486 (I think that's the one) pill. It doesnt terminate pregnancy. It only stops (a certain percent) pregnancy if conception has not already happened.

Wrong. Plan B can work to prevent ovulation (like traditional birth control), but it can also be effective post-fertilization, by preventing the embryo's implantation in the womb. An embryo prevented from implantation will die.

From the article of yahoo.com written by to AP medical writers.

"The pills are a concentrated dose of the same drug found in many regular birth-control pills. Taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex, a woman can lower the risk of pregnancy by up to 89 percent.(and since you seem to like bold so much) If she already is pregnant, the pills have no effect."

don't bother. in the religious world, pregnancy and conception are the same thing.

I thought this had no effect on a fertilized embryo.
