Emergency Contraceptive (Plan B) Prevents Abortion:The Conservative Argument.

I strongly support the U.S. District Federal Court Judge Edward Korman’s ruling on April 5, 2013 that girls of all ages should have unrestricted access to Plan B (Oral Contraceptive).  The “safe and harmless morning after pill (Plan B)”, according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), in my opinion not only prevents unwanted pregnancies among teens and adults, it will eventually reduce the number of abortions per year in the USA.

I respect a woman’s sexual and reproductive rights to choose when it comes to her body, however at the same time abortion should be a last resort or a non-starter in many cases. It is considered to be a conservative argument to support the use of contraceptives in order to mitigate or end the wide spread practice of abortion.

In today’s society girls are often exposed to unwanted sexual activities at very young ages who often report incidents of rape and sexual abuse. Sadly, we often discover that their protective guardians and close friends are mainly the perpetrators or culprits of such abuse. Yes! We have continuously failed to protect and safe guard our children’s safety and future.

In 2008 the CDC estimates indicated that “female teen’s ages 15 to 19 abortion rates then was about 18 per 1,000 persons.” The 2012 CDC NCHS Data Brief showed that “U.S. teen birth rate declined 9 percent from 2009 to 2010, reaching a historic low at 34.3 births per 1,000 women aged 15–19.” Any non-medical rational for an abortion is one too many, and where such engagement can be prevented, fertile women of all ages should have unrestricted access to contraceptives, such as Plan-B.

Like many other over the counter contraceptives, Plan-B’s side effects include: changes in the menstrual cycle, dizziness, headache and nausea. These are said to be harmless to female of all ages, including young, sexually active fertile girls.  

Finally, the concerns and rights of parents should not be trivialized, and should have been taken into consideration. In spite of the Judge’s ruling, early initiations of sex and teen pregnancies are a reality and are at an alarming rate in this country.  Therefore unrestricted access to sex education and harmless contraceptives are imperative.
