Plan B One-Step is an emergency contraceptive aimed at reducing the usability of pregnancy if taken within three days of unprotected intercourse. It uses a single pill that contains a high dose of the same hormone used in birth control pills to prevent or delay ovulation, prevent fertilization or, in some cases, prevent implantation of a fertilized egg in the uterine lining. Plan B One-Step will not end a pregnancy if a woman is already pregnant and there is no medical evidence it harms a developing fetus, FDA officials said.
Plan B, available from generic manufacturers, uses two doses of elaborateness. Another emergency contraceptive, Ella, or Lilliputian, s a prescription-only product that prevents pregnancy when taken within five days of unprotected intercourse. The Fad’s decision Tuesday does not affect Plan B or Ella. FDA approves Plan B One-Step tort girls 15 and older without prescription Biology in the News (April edition) Many people believe that fifteen year girls should not be able to have possession of plan B or any kind of birth control pills and I agree.
With FDA approving this proposition it gives these young women a chance to have unprotected sex and not care because they are on plan B. However, some people would disagree about this tenement because it protects girls from having children. This article will show all of the aspects of this new idea. Fortunately, “[u]ender the Fad’s latest action, the emergency contraception will now be labeled as not for sale to those younger than 15 and will require proof of age” making it better for parents to reassure that their daughter do not have possession of any birth control pills.
This excerpt from the article says that “[t]he action alters the Fad’s controversial decision in December 2011 not to make Plan B One-Step available over the counter to girls younger than 17” which in my mind agrees with because we , the young ladies, should be responsible enough to commit these kind of actions and know what we are deciding to do. Yes, this new idea helps young ladies to protect their lives but it makes it available to them; meaning that if they wanted to have sex they could do it without a care.
We should not be able to have Plan B when we are 15 years or older because it would allow us to make mistakes. It can affect their lives and their families lives as well. “The data reviewed by the agency demonstrated that women 1 5 years of age and elder were able to understand how Plan B One-Step works, how to use it properly, and that it does not prevent the transmission of a sexually transmitted disease” showing that this was most girls however there are other girls that can make a mistake.
Women should be able to make smart decisions and I think that FDA will agree. I think this information informs us that we should be making smart decisions for our life. This information will help young women because they can protect themselves yet with a risk. It is crucial to understand the responsibility FDA is expecting out of us young woman.
