Presentation on theme: "KAYLA CAM SECTION RN PLAN B (MORNING AFTER PILL) MEDIATION."— Presentation transcript:


2 WHAT IS PLAN B? Over the counter. Back-up plan that helps prevents an unwanted pregnancy from happening after unprotected sex or birth control failure. Suppose to be used within 72 hours, best if used sooner.

3 HOW DOES IT WORK? Pregnancy doesn't happen right after sex. It can take up to six days for the sperm and egg to meet after having sex. Prevents a woman's ovary from releasing an egg for longer than usual. Pregnancy cannot happen if there is no egg to join with sperm


5 WHY SHOULD WE MEDIATE? Teen pregnancies is a big deal in our society and pretending like it’s not happening is not realistic. Just because it’s available does not mean everyone can afford it. Lastly, the question is who’s decision is it really.

6 17 YEARS OLD AND OLDER BECAUSE… People think the pill promotes sexual activity in younger girls. People believe that parents should be informed before their child makes a big decision to avoid any life mistakes. Significant cognitive and behavioral difference between younger girls and older women

7 16 YEARS OLD BECAUSE… Current age consent for having sex is 16 years old, so they should be able to purchase a pill without a prescription as well. Visiting the doctors to receive a prescription might take longer than 72 hours. Studies show that giving women packets of Plan B, did not lead to an increase in unprotected sex.

8 PAST AND PRESENT LAWS In 2011, Kathleen Sebelius; decision that girls under 17 years old would need a prescription to purchase Plan B so she felt confident that A 10-year-old or an 11-year-old going into a drug store would not be able to purchase something that could be harmful to them if not used properly.. As of April 2013, “A federal judge in Brooklyn, New York, has ordered the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to make the morning-after birth control pill available to people of any age without a prescription”.

9 MY CONCLUSION Overall there is clear evidence to both sides of the claim but I have to agree with the Judge of New York but I do believe that everyone needs to be more educated, not just about the pill, but about sex. The pill is shown to not be harmful to adolescence so it should be provided for anyone and there is clear directions. It will help with unwanted pregnancies if used correctly.
