I understand that allowing young women to use "plan B" contraception is believed unsafe. Do I understand this correctly - the FDA thinks that pregnancy between ages 11 and 15 is, in contrast to stopping it in its tracks, safe? This medication should be easy for worried young girls to get. This is just silly puritanical political foolishness. Please reconsider. Allow for "Plan B"
