Better Re-up on Your Condoms!

The ‘Morning After’ pill, Plan B,  will NOT be hitting shelves any time soon. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, overruled an FDA plan that would have allowed Plan B Emergency contraception to be sold over the counter to younger women. Plan B will continue to require a doctor’s prescription in order to obtain which is the biggest issue with the drug. The main reason for overturning the decision of making it readily available to women, is the fear that younger girls will purchase the drug, and not use it properly.

I’m a bit torn on this one, I feel that it is somewhat a form of ‘birth control’ and birth control isn’t just all up on store shelves next to condoms and what have you, you have to get a prescription. Then on the other hand, I think about the woman who may have had *singing* “one too many drinks,” had a little bit of unprotected sex, and wants to resolve a potential issue before it arises but can’t get to the doctors within the 3 day time frame to even use the drug. So I’m not really sure if this was a good or bad call…what do you think?

  1. Not sure how you could mess up taking two pills but eh what do I know…If you know your a hoe that will have unprotected sex with strangers just be a smart hoe and get it from your doctor B4 your next escapade..that won’t help you with the more serious issues (like HIV/AIDS) but you weren’t worried about that in the 1st place now were you?
