The nation’s leading pediatrics organization is encouraging doctors to talk to teenagers about the morning-after pill — and to send girls home with prescriptions for emergency contraception, just in case. “If you’ve got a teen in the clinic, you ought to be talking to them about sexual activity, even if that’s not necessarily why they’re coming in,” said Dr. Cora Breuner, a pediatrician at Seattle Children’s.
