    The accessibility of emergency contraception on college campuses has sparked recent debate.

    Shippensburg University, in Pennsylvania, has been at the center of the controversy. Inside a student health center, it put a vending machine that sells the Plan B contraceptive -- commonly called "the morning-after pill." The machine also sells condoms and pregnancy tests.

    Plan B is legal to buy without a prescription for those 17 and older and is sold at most pharmacies.

    I'm sure glad it's easier for those responsible young adults to get plan B pills and condoms than it is for me, and irresponsible middle aged father of 4, to get some cold medicine.

    (love the comment on cold medicine!)

    I can't believe that the fact that these women are having at-risk relationships now easily avoid a doctor altogether. A doctor who just might be able to counsel them and save their lives. Add in the fact that this medication just might cause a death - with no guidance whatsoever (not to mention the issues with a possible fertilized egg) just makes it absolutely unbelievably irresponsible. But what else would we expect from the world?
