The Pill is a bit like Communism. So many are fond of saying that Communism looks great on paper; it just doesn’t work in practice. (I don’t think it looks all that great on paper, but I digress. The point still stands that many people think it does look good on paper, whilst understanding that in this thing we call real life, it was a catastrophic failure.)
The idea of a foolproof means to prevent pregnancy may have looked like a good idea on paper, but in practice, it is very bad indeed. See here for a universal opposition to the Pill from PWPL’s first and only colloquium. Well worth reading, since there was no discussion prior to tossing the theme out and here you have it: Six strong, smart women all universally panning the Pill.
No need to be religious or pro-life to agree here, by the way, plenty of secular (more naturalistic) types of agencies are discovering the Pill ain’t great, too.by
