'Cause Teens Make Bad Decisions

The FDA has approved the sale of the Plan B emergency contraception pill to 17-year-olds. Plan B is available without a perscription.


  1. This is great news! And yet this quote from the article is a bit disheartening:

    "But young people in the United States have so much unprotected sex — one in three girls under the age of 20 will get pregnant, with 80 percent of the pregnancies unplanned — that Plan B has been little more than a sandbag on an overtopped flood wall. Even women who are given the medicine free often fail to take it after having unprotected sex."

    Fail to take it?! When it's FREE?! Have teenagers always been this dumb?
