Morning After Pill to be Offered Over the Counter

After a decade or so effort to ease access to morning-after pills, the government is lowering the age limit to 15 for one brand, Plan B One-Step,and it will be sold over the counter. 

According to the Associated Press, at the moment, Plan B and its generic competition are sold behind pharmacy counters, and people must prove they’re 17 or older to buy the emergency contraception without a prescription.

Yesterday, the Food and Drug Administration approved a different approach: Plan B could sit on drugstore shelves next to condoms, spermicides or other women’s health products, but to make the purchase, buyers must prove they’re 15 or older at the cash register.

Personally, Having an 11 year old, I think 15 is too young. What do you think of the ruling?
