I buried this at the end of another post, but according to the most recent data I could find, of the roughly 758,000 teen pregnancies a year 212 of these involved girls 12 and younger.   If you’re getting into a debate about Plan B and 12-year-olds you’re being played for a sucker.   The relevant Plan B debate is about 15- and 16-year olds, and people who are bringing up the 0% of teenage pregnancies among 11-year-olds are trying to make paternalistic regulations seem more reasonable.  (Which, of course, should not imply that making it more difficult for the infinitesimal number of 12-year-olds who get pregnant to get emergency contraception is anything but a terrible idea.)
