I think some below are missing the point of the ruling

It is not whether or not the plan B pill is OK as a means to prevent pregnancy.

The issue at hand is whether it is OK for children to buy and take it without their parents knowledge. Clearly, an 18 year old is an emancipated adult and reached an age where they are supposedly mature enough to make such decisions for themselves. But that is entirely different for minors. 15 year olds in general have not reached a level of maturity to decide what drugs are OK. That is what parents are for. I don't advocate a law for this but I would think it prudent for pharmacies to self police and not sell drugs to minors without parental permission.
