    As a sexuality eutdacor and youth activist and advocate I think it should be made available in schools for the same reason why condoms should be! The general public hasn’t read the research, parents and most school officials. People say that if you give kids condoms and sex education that you are encouraging them to have sex. This has been disproved many times by prestigious research organizations such as the Institute of Medicine. The same thing with Plan B, if teens are having unprotected sex (which some are) what would make it a good idea to keep this away from them. Accessibility continues to be one of the biggest issues when looking at adolescent sexuality and reproductive health in the United States. The United States has the highest teenage pregnancy rate among other industrialized countries and one reason is because of our ignorance, oppression of marginalized groups (such as young people) and issues of access. Earlier this year Secretary Sebelius ruled that Plan B couldn’t be given out over the counter, despite the FDA saying that there was no medical reason for the age requirement. Plan B cost 50 dollars in most pharmacies. I don’t know how many fifteen year olds will be buying those like packs of skittles. So if your are under the age of 17 you are required to go to a clinic and a prescription, which means if it is the weekend or a late hour when the clinic is closed you are out of luck. So what does a young responsible woman do? You find a 17 year old friend and use your saved up birthday money from grandma and stock up on Plan B. If anything I believe it encourages teens to make healthier choices, because if they know about Plan B they probably know about condoms! It takes education to know about both. I think NYC is making a bold step, and I’m proud of my city. First with the comp sex ed mandate and now this!! Access is how we give our youth a future.
