I am appalled that the FDA has disregarded their own medical advisors who advocated that Emergency Contraception be made available WITHOUT a physician's appointment and with an informed pharmacist's approval. The health risks, especially for young teens, associated with a full-term pregnancy make those minor risks associated with Plan B look miniscule. Make Plan B readily available at all ages.
