“Yesterday, the FDA announced that it will make Plan B—also known as emergency contraception (EC) or the morning after pill—available over the counter to women older than 15 years old who can prove their age.”

Facts on Unintended Pregnancy in the United States

“Most American families want two children. To achieve this, the average woman spends about five years pregnant, postpartum or trying to become pregnant, and three decades—more than three-quarters of her reproductive life—trying to avoid an unintended pregnancy.”

What a simple child you are. SMH.

Britney Morales February 21, 2017 - 8:44 AM

Its funny that yall are bitching about the price, if you wanna be fucking at age 14 you literally have to pay the price. Special victims is one thing, but it is likely the plan b users may be youth using it as birth control.

Shila Seny July 8, 2018 - 5:14 PM

What if the pill was taken after the egg has been released? Or during the ovulation day? If "morning after pills" prevents ovulation, no egg no fertilization, how does it work after ovulation or if the egg has been released?

Gabriela Sofia August 4, 2018 - 12:50 PM

Where I live the plan b pill is $80 🤦🏻‍♀️🙄

✮ SavanaAngel ✮ August 5, 2018 - 8:12 AM

i love how many of the dissenters of this innocuous video either don't have a sense of grammar or at the least have Google Chrome to correct their spelling errors.

japared oakfield February 9, 2019 - 6:51 AM

Why do Americans have to use plan B so often? Well, it’s fairly simple. They are dumb pricks.

crazy cat lady ann February 9, 2019 - 10:42 PM
