Plan B treatments have been used for many years but required a prescription. They are very, very safe. However, to be effective, they must be taken as soon as possible. I can promise you there will be few younger teenage girls who are going to tell their mother (or heaven forbid, their father) in time for the treatment to be effective. If they are lucky, a older sister or friend might be persuaded to buy it for them, much like asking someone older to buy alcohol for them. Plan B needs to available to all women of childbearing years. If anyone thinks Plan B may not be safe for teenagers, how can they possibly think pregnancy would be any safer?

While I understand what you are saying, as a parent, I do not feel it is OK for my minor child to have access to any drugs without my consent. People want Plan B to be available to children who cannot even get a tattoo. These children are fully the responsibility of their parents. Exactly who would be qualified to discuss Plan B with the child? Another child? A stranger? Who? This is like bizzaro world where parents are bad and anyone else knows better…. WTF?

In order to get Plan B, you have to get it from the Pharmacy like you get Sudafed. So, a registered and educated Pharmacist could speak with girls. If they’re lucky, the pharmacist would be a woman. Personally, I think that alone should be enough for not needing a prescription, because the potential for patient consultation is already there.

I agree. If the person buying it is required to ask the pharmacist for it and the pharmacist needs to educate the person on the use of the medication, I think that would deal with the concern about girls not knowing enough to be able to take the medication properly.
