You know, I don't even think the issue is so much with what the medication does; but just the fact that its medication. You have to be over 18 to buy lots of medication really, I mean in my state I can't even buy cough syrup. Adults can't buy more than a certain amount each month to help prevent meth labs from making illegal substances. Condoms are different than a pill; you can't abuse a condom in the same way that a pill could be abused.

But the MAP is basically just a high dose of the birth control pill.
And you can get the birth control pill under the age of 18.
Did she even say "the birth control pill" exactly?

"lots of medication"
"in my state"

I was comparing the pill to something that was legal to get underage.

How do you know it's legal underage?
I mean, I thought America had all those wacko laws for every state that are just like wtf.


Besides.
Any medication has side effects if you fuck up taking it. Any med is the same, I've taken too much medication in my life not to know that. So, yeah, it would be kind of stupid to make pill A legal when cough syrup B is illegal. It's not like it's super teenagepregnancy!discrimination or anything.

Well, then they aren't the same thing. They're used for different things and they can't be treated as the same. If you increase the dosage of any medicine it becomes stronger and there is more potential for it to be misued. It being a higher dosage is all the more reason to regulate it.

But 25 mg of Lamictal is just as legal as 250.

They were given to me from the time I was 14 until I was 15 1/2 and it was perfectly legal. Birth control pills aren't just to prevent pregnancy. They can be used to help severe cramps during that time of the month (like cramps that are worse than usual ones due to endometriosis, like I have). A doctor isn't going to deny you pills that can help just because you're legally underage.

....Yeah I've just come to the conclusion that whatever health system you have in America is weirder than apricot stilton. Like, zomg, you can't have cough syrup but you can have pills. o.o

Back to the NHS, says I.
I don't even know what the morning after pill ~rulez~ are here anyway.
Doctors would give it you, probably chemists too, school nurses, and definitely clinics and hospitals. It's probably legal everywhere. rofl.

Whether or not they should, they will and are.
And a child is not a suitable punishment.

Yep, children shouldn't be considered punishments or consequences as I see it.
They should be kinda like gifts instead. :]

My dad is currently all "That baby was an accident."
Me: ...Surprise, you ass. It was a surprise. They're not accidents.

...or at least that's how I consider it.

Well, if kids that young wouldn't have sex they would need an age limit.

I don't think the morning after pill is right. Don't have sex or use a condom. It's that simple.

It really isn't that simple. It's easier said than done with "don't have sex". And condoms don't solve everything. They break more than people realize. The same goes for birth control pills. Not 100% effective, and my sister and her tummy are walking proof of that.

Well, that's a good point. I've never had the decision so I'm not sure if it's hard or not. Rolling Eyes

Condoms break once out of 116 times on average. Condom

I think 18 is a dumb age limit when sex becomes legal at 16 here. What good is that? Having a pill you can't buy legally after contracting the 'illness' legally.
