I think it is extremely inappropriate to approve over the counter sales of the 'morning after' pill that can cause abortions. This country is already in a steady downward moral trend, and this will only continue it's downward spiral. Not considering the moral side, medications tend to have the problem of being pulled off the market after they found out they are killing people, which, I believe, this pill has already done. This pill also gives every teenager another reason to have sex whenever they want without any knowledge of their parents knowing and assuming there will be no repercussions. Since coming out with the condom in the last decades and handing them out willy-nilly, pregnancies have sky-rocketed (instead of going down like promotors of 'free sex' thought). I guarantee that promoting the over-the-counter pill and handing it out like candy will cause more complications than this country even dreams. Do the world a favor and act with moral thought for once in your life.
