Exploiting teens, pawns in the sexual revolution.

The FDA is making the drug Plan B available to 15 year olds over the counter.  
In a surprise twist to the decade-plus effort to ease access to morning-after pills, the government is lowering the age limit to 15 for one brand - Plan B One-Step - and will let it be sold over the counter.

Today, Plan B and its generic competition are sold behind pharmacy counters, and people must prove they're 17 or older to buy the emergency contraception without a prescription. A federal judge had ordered an end to those sales restrictions by next Monday.

But Tuesday, the Food and Drug Administration approved a different approach: Plan B could sit on drugstore shelves next to condoms, spermicides or other women's health products - but to make the purchase, buyers must prove they're 15 or older at the cash register.
This is of course outrageous and another example of the bitter fruit of the sexual revolution.  Teens are pawns in this sexual revolution.  They receive no wisdom from the broader culture and our cultural elites on the nature and purpose of sex other than do whatever they want.  Then they're told to avoid one of the consequences of their sexual activity a possible pregnancy.  They of course can still contract sexually transmitted disease and bear the emotional and inner scars of sex outside of a committed, lifelong married relationship.  A form of child abuse and exploitation.
