Should 17-Year-Olds Be Allowed to Buy Plan B?

I'm grateful that Plan B is available in drugstores and pharmacies, but you have to be at least 18 years old to buy it without a prescription. In spite of that, minors are also having sex, which is why a judge in Brooklyn has ordered the FDA to reconsider its decision and allow underage girls access to this emergency contraception too. The court ruling ordered the FDA to act within 30 days, so now all women 17 and up will soon have access to this safe and effective drug! This is big news.

So what do you think about this ruling? Is it only fair to let Plan B be available to all women, regardless of their age? Or do you think this ruling sends the wrong message to teens about having unprotected sex?
