FDA to allow 17 year olds to get "morning after pill"

47 posts in this topic

This is one of the two or three valid points you have ever made on this board. The other two, I'm pretty sure, were questioning Zods sexuality.

Fiz...not Zod's. I guess I assume someone fixated on the TopCats would be hetero, but then again...he could be one of the Perez Hilton types.

BTW...my same issue with liability would pertain to abortion consent for minors.

I wonder how many in this very thread have daughters.

You can\'t enforce the legality of having sex, so retarded.

I have a 17 year old daughter, and if she felt the need to keep all this hidden from me, well, she's a big girl and can make a decision like that on her own. But I hope she would not.

if parents were doing their jobs, it wouldn't be an issue.

I agree 100%.

Problem is, kids aren't "raised" as much any more, they are "befriended".

Since fewer parents do their job now than used to do, I would prefer to see as few "unwanted" pregnancies as possible. I am really torn on it's being available to minors, but I would rather more people use BC than fewer. I don't get why there are more baby mommas and baby daddies than ever now though there is also much more freedom and availability and less stigma associated with getting BC at a young age. Heck, there's even less stigma with getting abortions than there was years ago. That's why I don't think it's a matter of "unwanted" with most of these pregnancies, it's a status thing or a lifestyle CHOICE. It involves the lives and the wallets of other people besides just the baby momma or daddy and that's a huge problem to me.

I remember the night my daddy gave me permission to have sex, don't you all?

No. I didn't know you then.

DING DING DING..

If there is a child born, the government will give them some money, this is widely known.

These women don't care if they are pregnant, or if they have kids. My mother and father beat into me to not have kids until well into my life....that never escaped me, and I was active, but careful.

How can many of the parents of the kids that are pregnant at 17 tell their kids that when they were in the same boat 18 years before.....

should start at 14 since today's kids are so well advanced and mature.

when i was in middle and high school, very rare to see a teen pregnant.

Now its like getting a tattoo or a blackberry..since everybody is doing it must be right.

now if these teens TORTUED someone then and only then would they have to be held responsible for thier actions.

But otherwise, do whatever feels good. There are no repercussions for your choices in life anymore.

It is something that tends to repeat itself, no doubt. I have an aunt who had an abortion and then went right out and got pregnant AGAIN (that baby was given up for adoption, and I think had a different daddy than the first one). She then had 4 kids with her husband and her oldest daughter became a baby momma at 16, then went out and got pregnant again before she got married (a different baby daddy, she married that one). I think my aunt was over 18 both times though.

On my husband's side, he has a ne'er do well sister who had two out of wedlock kids and HER daughter has done the same effing thing. Neither my grandparents or my husband's parents were baby daddies or mommies. In this case, my husband's parents took her back in after the first one and his dad told her that they wouldn't tolerate a second and she did it again anyway (he was kind of a hardass, my husband's mother was pretty permissive). The daughter who became the baby momma second generation was raised by a lifelong welfare mother (his sister) who hasn't worked in about a billion years though she had prior to having the kids and there's no reason she couldn't now. The son of the welfare momma was not raised in her household and has become a responsible man with a family and was never a baby daddy. Once the slope starts with a bad example, it's harder to climb back up.

This is one of those situations that when looked upon as what is best for the world, our nation, society, immediate family, mom, dad and the unborn child...

Dammed if you do, dammed if don't.

Can't see much of any silver lining either way.
