Re “Your thoughts on morning-after pill,” June 12: Since the government has now publicly and officially stated that 11- and 12-year old girls have every right to have sex by saying they have the right to buy morning-after pills without a prescription, shouldn’t they also be saying that we need to ensure the sex occurs in a clean and safe environment? Similar to legal abortions, shouldn’t the government be encouraging organizations like Planned Parenthood to establish facilities where young teens can go to have sex in a clean and safe environment? Otherwise, they will be having sex in cars, back alleys and other public places that might pose health risks, including sexually transmitted diseases. We wouldn’t want that.
