Plan B update

If this doesn’t scream Page One… Plan B Use Surges, And So Does Controversy

“The popularity of the morning-after pill Plan B has surged in the year since the federal government approved the sale of the controversial emergency contraceptive without a prescription.”

(Don’t most sales ‘surge’ after the item or service is deregulated?)

Anyway, all is not well despite the new-found freedom to buy. Apparently, you have to be at least 18 years old to buy Plan B and I guess this can put a crimp in a 16 year old’s inalienable right to have unprotected sex. Even worse:

“The requirement means women must show proof of their age, which could make it more difficult for some women, such as illegal immigrants, to obtain the pill.”

…yet one more reason why we desperately need a COMPREHENSIVE immigration bill right now.

One only wonders what quick-thinking Dana L. thinks of all this.
