No age limit on Morning after pill

So this morning there was  DJ all up in arms about no age limit on the morning after pill, and what if a 12 year old wanted one.

Hey STUPID if they are too young to be trusted to get and take a pill, how can they be trusted to RAISE A BABY?

It isn't like it is a pill you take before having sex. It's a pill you take AFTER having unprotected sex. I fail to see how NOT allowing a 15 year old to get and take it is a GOOD thing (or a 12 year old). In an Ideal world your kid would talk to you about having sex. But this isn't an Ideal world.  The morning after pill works BEST if taken....well the mroning after!  Waiting for the 15 year old to get her courage up to ask you about it...might mean the pill won't work.

I know this scares the hell out of a lot of Moms out there.  But what is the alternative when say the condom breaks? Do you want your teen to get pregnant?

I just don't see very many teens, especially pre-teens, having $50+ to shell out every time they have sex anyway. I can't imagine them having the financial means to use it as regular birth control.

Have they done studies to see if this pill is harmful for children?

I think it's total bullshit. We should be allowed as parents to force a 5 year IUD on our daughters then.

Most teens (who don't want their parents knowing about their sex lives) go to free clinics for birth control. I went to Planned Parenthood and received free birth control without my parents ever knowing about it. I'm sure they would have given me the morning after pill if it ever came to that.

The morning after pill is a high dose birth control pill.  Birth control pills have been prescribed for young girls for decades now, both to prevent pregnancy and to regulate periods in some girls.  So yes it has been tested.

It is KNOWN that pregnancy at a young age is dangerous for both Mother and child.  On many different levels.

I would hope my daughters would come to me if they needed something like that and i REALLY hope they would come to me beforehand so I could help them get birth control, but Im not against there being no age restrictions.  I would rather them get the pill than have a baby at a young age.
