Each of us has a hunger deep within where no one can see. And although it may not be obvious, this hunger is the most universal of all. It is the silent hunger of the starving soul. It is silent because we don't recognize it or have words to describe it; silent because it has been muted with years of behavior designed to still its voice; silent because the noise of our world prevents it from being heard.
But this hunger cannot be completely silenced. It cries out to be heard. It is our compelling desire to be loved, protected, and considered precious. It is a God-given hunger for genuine intimacy wherein our deepest needs for security and significance can be substantially met."

According to an article on the U.S. News website, the judge who directed the FDA to make the Plan B drug available to 17-year-olds, also ordered the FDA "...to review whether emergency contraception can be made available without any age restriction." (Read the entire article here) If that is approved, then even very young teenagers will have free access as well.
