Woman vs. Girls edit

I may be wrong, but woman is for 18+. Girls for 17-. Will check AP style guide though. One moment please ... —Calebrw (talk) 03:22, 24 March 2009 (UTC)Reply

Youth might be the best way to. AP says 13 through 18. Girl is any human female until the 18th birthday is reached, so that would work too. —Calebrw (talk) 03:33, 24 March 2009 (UTC)Reply
I guess I'll change it to "girls" for when it refers to 17 year olds then. --Resplendent (talk) 03:37, 24 March 2009 (UTC)Reply

Title edit

I might be the only one thinking this. But what is Plan B? Yes I figured it out when I read the first line of the article. I am not saying it needs to be changed as well, it draws the reader in in a sense...Any ideas? DragonFire1024 (Talk to the Dragon) 05:01, 24 March 2009 (UTC)Reply

I agree - first thing I was thinking of was definitly not birth control. Bawolff 05:04, 24 March 2009 (UTC)Reply
Suggestions for a more clear title are welcome! "Judge rules against FDA in morning-after pill lawsuit"? --Resplendent (talk) 05:08, 24 March 2009 (UTC)Reply
That title sounds too formal. I would say "Morning-after pill to be made available to 17-year-olds, judge rules". That works a bit better, the way you have implies that there would be some context for the headline in which WN readers already knew about the lawsuit. For instance, a few days ago, with the New Jersey proposed ban on Bikini Waxing, the second story's title could have been changed a bit. —Calebrw (talk) 14:48, 24 March 2009 (UTC)Reply
Birth control > morning after pill was actually the first thing I thought of. I guess I've just seen or heard about it on the news fairly recently. —Calebrw (talk) 14:48, 24 March 2009 (UTC)Reply

Title still doesn't work. I had to work out why this was news, since sex is legal at sixteen in my country. You should at least specify US. Blood Red Sandman (Talk) (Contribs) 17:48, 24 March 2009 (UTC)Reply
