Kathleen Sibelius: Plan B Contraception Is More Dangerous for 11-Year-Olds Than Full-Term Pregnancy and Childbirth

Kathleen Sibelius on why she overruled the FDA’s decision to make Plan B (the “morning after” pill) available over the counter, without a prescription, to all girls and women:

“About 10 percent of girls are physically capable of bearing children by 11.1 years of age. It is common knowledge that there are significant cognitive and behavioral differences between older adolescent girls and the youngest girls of reproductive age,” Sebelius said. “If the application were approved, the product would be available, without prescription, for all girls of reproductive age.”

 Oh, okay, that makes sense. Because pregnancy and childbirth are so much safer for an 11-year-old than an FDA-approved pill taken within 72 hours of sex without birth control, or contraceptive failure.

One response to “Kathleen Sibelius: Plan B Contraception Is More Dangerous for 11-Year-Olds Than Full-Term Pregnancy and Childbirth

  1. Upon reading, “so much safer” I immediately wondered how much an 11 year old girl can take.

    Also, if 11.1 years of age is at the 10% mark, there are obviously some girls in the 10 year bracket that are capable of becoming pregnant.
