Personally, I am against it under 18 without parental consent. I have a problem with nurses handing it out at school. I wouldn't take it myself, but if someone else wants to buy it, that's their perogative.
Being a middle school teacher 15 seems so young! But I can see situations which it might be needed. I would hope that I will have a close enough relationship with my children that they would come to me first.

I do not agree with this being available to girls under the age of 18. Whatever happened to the days where you needed parental consent???
I didn't know school nurses were providing this either! I'm a bit outraged that they can provide this without the consent of the parents. I have to sign a consent form if my daughter wants to take a field trip but not this? Wow.
Same here. I don't think your average 15 year old is mature enough to understand how serious the consequence can be. I could see them almost relying on it as a fail safe... I would definitely want a consent form for it in school as well!
Totally against it...Period!!!
And now that children can get their hands on this drug they will start to use it as birth control like they did with the other type of "plan b" drug that was introduced to the population years and years ago. sadly many deaths are going to occur and children lives may be over before they started....
I think most people STILL think that because a medicine is sold over the counter that it is considered safe. It will be abused, but you watch for awhile the media will hide it.
