Con

I would argue in favor of keeping the morning after pill and to just have restriction that will only allow adults to buy it but I cant. Even though there are already restrictions that only allow anyone over 17 to buy the pill there is still a possibility that anyone younger than 17 can get access to it through those that are allowed access to this pill, since, once they leave the store they are able to do what ever they want with the pill.

Pro

The morning after pill should be allowed for all ages. Some teens who engage in sexual activity younger than seventeen can become pregnant if her partner was not careful in wearing a condom. People go to parties or clubs and hook up, some I knowlingly do not use a condom, the morning after pill can help because it will delay her ovulation.

Con

In "About Teenagers Having Unprotected Sex", Global Post reported that 25% of teen have unprotected sex. If teenagers have access to the morning after pill then the percent of teenagers having unprotected sex could increase. Banning the morning after pill takes away their second option so that they will be more responsible of their actions.

Pro

Teens should feel free to do as try please. It's their life and body. He/she should be responsible for themself. The morning after pill would not decrease of increase their chance because they would still be having sex. Banning the pill for people who are younger than 17 can be beneficial but scarcely.
