Plan B, ‘Morning After Pill’ May Be Available to More Teens

Good Plan or Bad Plan?

If you are not familiar, Plan B is an emergency contraceptive pill that some women can purchase without a prescription.  Basically if a girl thinks she may have become pregnant due to contraceptive failure or from unprotected sex, she has up to 72 hours to take the Plan B pill to prevent pregnancy.

As of now, this pill is only available to women 17 and older without a prescription.  Teva Pharmaceutical Industries wants to make the pill available to girls 16 and younger.  The Food & Drug Administration could decide today if the age restriction will be lifted.

Time is reporting that if the ban is lifted the pill will be available with all over the counter medications.  Obviously this is a hot button issue for many.  Do you think this encourages more unprotected sex or do you think the age ban is a positive thing?
