I was all set to do a rant today after watching the story on "60 Minutes" about the "Plan B" pill. This pill can prevent pregnancy if taken within 72 hours of having sex. The FDA scientific advisory board has approved the drug for over the counter sale but the FDA President has ignored their advice and blocked it.
Now, as I said, I was all prepared to rant about legislating morality, etc... but then I got to thinking. The people who oppose this drug claim that it's not because they are pro-life but rather because the availability of the drug will lead to more promiscuous sex, which leads to more STD's, etc.
So, I want to know the truth. Ladies, if this drug had been available when you were a teenager, do you think you would have had more sex? As a follow-up, do you feel that the government should care about whether or not your daughter is a slut? Do you feel that drugs like this one will make it harder to control your daughter's raging hormones?
Seriously. I have a daughter and another on the way.
