The topics I am considering for my paper is easier access to birth control. Particulary, to have non-emergency oral contraceptives over the counter because girls need this. This interests me because many women abuse plan b, which is an emergency oral contraceptive that is not suppose to be taken as regular birth control. This concerns me because that means women do not have the access they need for birth control such as the pill. I also believe every woman should have easy access to birth control if needed, but right now like yeah birth control is easy to get but it isn’t really that easy. If the oral contraceptive was available over the counter it would be easier for girls to get, in todays world you do not need to go to a gynecologist for the pill, you can go to a family practitioner and they will ask you basic questions that you could answer on a computer at a pharmacy. This could decrease teen pregnancy. But also allow affordable contraception for women without insurance, or girls who have strong religious backgrounds and their parents will not let them get on the pill but they really need to be on it. It will also save awkwardness between the girl and her parents. No woman should be denied birth control, which is my opinion that I am willing to prove. This option will also allow women with health insurance to go to a doctor to get birth control if they really wanted to get it from a doctor. It is less than dangerous than Nyquil, Tylenol that is sold over the counter and it is also less dangerous than plan b. The counter-arguments could be what about a minimum age, regulation, encourages sexual activity, unsafe, unhealthy. All of my counter- arguments can easily be backed to prove that they are wrong. I’m hoping that this paper goes as I plan to it, in other words, I hope to do as good on it as I think I can. I am really passionate about the topic, so I feel like that will help me form logical & solid arguments that will shoot down the counter-arguments. Hopefully this paper goes way better than my past two papers.
