Teva, the manufacturer of Plan B, has asked the FDA to let it sell its emergency contraception over the counter to all ages. (Currently, anyone under 17 needs a prescription.) Meanwhile, the Center For Reproductive Rights is still suing the FDA to explain the medical reason for withholding over the counter access to teens under 17. Hint: There isn't one.
Can children buy any over the counter medicine? I believe the age for the morning after pill should be younger than 17, but I don't believe it should be available to all ages.
I'm not sure where I'd place the proper age, 12 or 13?
How is this usually done for over the counter medicines?
