Morning-after pill debated
Rules for female and male prescriptions should be the same
Females as young as 16 can get the Plan B pill to terminate potential pregnancies without prescriptions. Depending on the outcome of another court case, they may be able to acquire it at an even younger age [“Judge in NYC rips opposition to Plan B order,” seattletimes.com, May 7].
However, a male, typically 50 or older, must get a prescription for Viagra and other pills to overcome being impotent.
So the government is saying that a male who is President Obama’s age is not capable of making a good decision and would need a prescription, but females the age of the Obama daughters are more capable of making a good decision and do not need a prescription. Where is the wisdom in that kind of thinking?
