I would rather see people have to show proof of age. A young girl not knowing her family history could have an adverse reaction.
Lord knows that I have had some strange reactions to hormonal birth control and I am not the only one. The idea of using it at 16 without a physicians supervision is scary
ETA condoms and pregnancy test are VERY low risk. I have never heard of potentially fatal side effects from peeing on a stick and even though I have had allergic reactions to some condoms (those with spermicide) my life was not in any sort of danger

I think it's not before time. There are too many restrictions in place and too many hoops to jump through. If it saves just one girl/woman having to face the agonizing abortion/adoption/keeping it dilemma then I say hallelujah amen!
As for the hormone side of it, there will always be people who don't react well to drugs. There are people who have died from taking ibuprofen and that's otc so I think it's a risk we must take.
I only hope that ALL chemists will be duty bound to prescribe it if there is not another chemist present rather than turning someone away because of their own beliefs.
