28. There ya go
we agree... and they would be provided with the pill, there is nothing in the HHS decision banning young girls from getting the pill. The problem being that kids that are assaulted in this way are among the least likely to actually report the assault because they think they'll get in trouble.

In addition kids, especially girls, in the process of undergoing puberty are in greater danger of serious side effects by overdosing on hormones. Hormones generally aren't that dangerous but there is some concern that just a few extra Plan B pills can tip the balance to permanent damage in this case.
