Plan B isn't a guarantee (and stores are limiting sales of it at the moment, plus there are some who want to ban that too). Actual effectiveness of condoms isn't terribly great, plus let's face it, they kind of suck. Some can't be on hormonal birth control (and in fact a friend's mom has PCOS and was on birth control to manage that when she got pregnant with my friend because it balanced out her hormones so well). Louisiana (I believe) has tried to ban IUDs (and Turd Cruz thinks that's a great idea, as do others, I'm sure).
There are people who have been told by their doctors not to get pregnant because the risk of death/complications is too high, but those same doctors won't recommend a surgeon to sterilize them. There are people who just don't want kids and can't find a doctor who would sterilize them or can't afford to get sterilized. Other doctors require the husband to sign off on the procedure. It's ridiculous.
Yeah, my take has always been paranoia about regret. But I don't see why not so long as you make sure they're making a (really) informed decision.
Have a friend that can finally get her tubes tied because she's 32 now.
