‘Plan B’ order is politically correct without any sense

May 18, 2013

Political correctness has sunk into absurdity in a situation involving access to the so-called “Plan B” birth control drug....

Rightway yes sex is not new, neither is raging teenage hormones. But it was not looked upon as something without significant consequences until the threat of pregnancy was taken out of the way. Today the attitude toward sex is very casual multi partners maybe even at the same time is common place. Why the fear of pregnancy has been taken out of the way and the fear of one's parents finding out is taken away because all they have to do is go get the little pill and it will get rid of the consequences. My guess is the graduating classes of 60 years ago had a much larger percentage of virgins graduating than todays classes. Ps even with the pill it does not protect kids against STD's something that has increase greatly since the advent of the birth control and that is something that kill our youth.

Pheonix says: "Restricting the availability of birth control to young people won't make them more responsible, only good parents, mentors and role models can do that."

I agree but when the good parents, mentors and role models are under minded by allowing kids to get abortion pills to cover up promiscuity how does that help.

I repeat it teaches kids it is ok to be irresponsible and more promiscuous, because if they get in trouble they can just make it go away and not even the parents will know. I really can't comprehend a parent that would want their daughter to have access to such things without their knowledge.

It does not promote promiscuity. Look how many teen pregnancies there were before all the different kinds of contraception were even available. People just hush hushed things more back then

Restricting the availability of birth control to young people won't make them more responsible, only good parents, mentors and role models can do that. It just creates more unplanned and unwanted pregnancies and who left to suffer but the child.

The availability of any birth control methods to children under the age of 18 simply promotes promiscuity among our youth. It sends them a signal that it is ok to have pre-marital sex with whomever you want because their is no consequences for such behavior.

rightway It still does not teach responsibility. Why should kids abstain they can just get rid of the consequences of their behavior. What did we ever do before abortions and morning after abortions pills and birth control pills? What we did was teach kids if they fooled around they could get pregnant and that they would have to live with the consequences of their action. Which method do you think produced the most responsible members of society? Take a pill so you can do as you please and prevent any consequences or knowing that if your got caught you had to live up to your responsibility. With your thinking kids should be able to buy booze and cigarettes freely also. Who is to say a 17 year old is as responsible as an 18 year old. Why do you make 17 your cut off year?

I don't think anyone mentioning supplying them with birth control on here. Maybe I missed it?

And a 17 year old (if that's what the age gets raised to hopefully) is old enough to emancipate from their parents, old enough to be tried as an adult. They are old enough to protect themselves from unwanted pregnancy if they choose. Thinking that if you take away all contraception teens just won't get pregnant is not good logic. Of course teens should be taught abstinence is the first route. But guess how often that happens? Not a lot.

Ladybug says: AQre you kidding me concerned,How many teenagers in our schools all over the country are having sex ?

The attitude of o well they are going to do this anyway so we may as well supply them with the birth control, ******s, morning after pills etc, is what is part of the problem. It teaches people they do not have to be responsible for their actions. Get pregnant o well just make it go away, so you can continue on and not have to face an consequences for your action. That is not the way to teach people to be responsible. As I said before children are not mature enough to make these kind of choices. The government allowing kids to get their hands on these things are under minding the authority of the parents. If parents want to provide their children with this stuff that is their business but to allow kids to get it without parental consent is wrong. How is a parent to gain control when society is*****bent on destroying the parents authority.

If a person under 18 can, in our courts of law be tried as an adult, then they should be allowed to get this pill. (though i do hope it gets bumped up to 17)

And plan b is not comparative to an abortion. it prevents implantation. just like a ******. unless you consider ******s abortions as well? maybe we should ban them next.

Anyone under the age of 18 is not responsible enough to make these kinds of judgments. The government is interfering with parental rights by allowing anyone under the age of 18 to obtain this type thing without parental consent. I know a lot of people that if their grandparents had not intervened, they could easily have been an abortion statistic rather than a useful member of society.
