I am very thankful personally to Plan B. It has been a lifesaver numerous times. Great peace of mind knowing it is there if/when you need it.

Plan B is abortion, plain and simple.

This discussion should never be taking place. Any "young teen" found to be pregnant has been the victim of a serious criminal act. They have been raped. Stricter enforcement of rape laws and severe penalties would remove the "need" for this form of child murder.

Plan B is OTC in Britain, Canada and Australia. If the "Christianists" in the US had their way, it would be outlawed and treated like heroin.

Birth control would be a better choice than Plan B. But Plan B is better than teen pregnancy. While you are researching the adverse side effects and long term risks of Plan B, why don't you research the same for teen pregnancy and infants born to teens.

Yeah, your letter isn't misleading AT ALL.
The doctor MENTIONED he knew parents who kept it in their home for emergencies, and some were pro-life. The article, as I read it, was recommending that teens have a relationship with their doctor to have a prescription ready if it is needed. The article stated that if a teen has sex on a saturday and has to wait to see her doctor, it could be monday or after the 72 hour window (which you also didn't mention).
The article was highly advocating that teens, their parents and their doctors have a conversation. And since it wasn't a commercial, it wasn't going to mention all the side effects, but merely that the American College of Pediatricians is recommending that perhaps the prescription is needed to prevent pregnancy in emergency cases.
