How irresponsible is this?

What if a young girl has a complication after taking this abortion pill? 

I need to write a note for my daughter to take a tylenol , so how does this happen?



Court Orders FDA to Make Emergency Contraception Available Over-the-Counter for All Ages

In a long-awaited decision released early this morning, U.S. District Court Judge Edward Korman ordered the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to make emergency contraception available over-the-counter to women of all ages, marking a major win for public health and women’s rights in a year that has seen science otherwise buried under an avalanche of anti-choice politics. In his decision, Judge Korman orders the FDA to make levonorgestrel-based emergency contraception available over-the-counter without an age or point-of-sale restriction.

It's not an abortion pill! Higher dose of the pill.

Quoting Bethsunshine:

You can't buy cold medicine or spray paint over the counter but let's sell abortion pills over the counter. Sure, makes perfect sense.

She needs a note for Tylenol from the school nurse. She can buy some from the pharmacy just like she can buy plan B which is not an abortion pill.

The more you know...

It isn't an abortion pill, for that, you have to go to a dr and be in his or her care.

That can be easily solved by requiring a pharmacist council at the time of sale.

Quoting Lillymygirl:

I feel like it just throws out most vulnerable to the wolves. These kids will not have the benefit of any guidance by either a parent or a Doctor. Plus what have they learned? No-ones saying Hey did you protect yourself at all? Do you know all the risks to unprotected sex? Were you raped? 

Quoting Anonymous:

I think it's good and bad but I hope the young girls taking it are aware of the side effects/possibilities of the contraception and of sex but I doubt they will be...

Doesn't matter how often you say it, still not an abortion pill.

Okay, you can't buy cold medicine or spray paint over the counter but let's sell higher dose birth control pills over the counter. Sure, makes perfect sense. Is that better?
