“Should we not be protecting our children from those who think it’s OK for 11 year olds to have sex, and buy a drug entity which is 60 percent effective per use, associated with virilization of female fetuses, increased susceptibility to STDs, and osteoporosis, and is not studied in the pre-teen population?” .
