The Pill

What do you think of birth control after watching this film?
What were your impressions of Margaret Sanger?
What were some of the outcomes of the mass production of birth control?

    Okay, I will start. Did you notice the Congressional hearings. From the 1970s?? Discussing a pill manufactured for and taken ONLY by women?? And nothing but MEN doing the talking??

    Contrast that with the last round of Congressional hearings about women’s health care. Nothing but men doing the testifying.

    The more things change, the more they really do stay the same.

    In order for it to change, women need to lobby and make it clear that men should not be leading legislation for reproductive issues. If a pill form of male birth control comes out, then I’ll be fine with them over-legislating and regulating it. Until then, they do not belong in the discussion. If men have an issue with it, they can get over it!

    As harsh as it is, I am uneasy with our legislature making decisions on reproductive issues until the legislative body more accurately represents the female demographic. We need to elect more female Congresswomen and Senators! Then the discussion can finally become more even-handed.
