For your Pill files, an article about fewer women taking it:
Frustrated with side effects or uncomfortable with the daily flow of hormones into their bodies, some Canadian women have stopped using the tiny birth-control pills that ushered in an era of reproductive freedom. Vanessa Richmond, a 36-year-old from Vancouver, said she went off the birth-control pill a decade ago because she never felt “quite right.”
…But the continued popularity of the pill doesn’t indicate it is the best form of birth control for women, said Laura Wershler, executive director of Sexual Health Access Alberta in Calgary. Instead, she said, it indicates women don’t know their options.
…”There’s this lack of knowledge and understanding within my own field,” Wershler said. “Women are going to sexual-health clinics and being laughed off by the doctors and clinics for looking for alternatives.”
And when people associated with Planned Parenthood say it (Sexual Health Access Alberta used to be Planned Parenthood) you know at very least this is not a Catholic conspiracy to force women to have babies… Is it just me or is there some freedom of information in the air?by
