I will likely be discussing this on Monday morning on AM1310 News in Ottawa. Yet to be confirmed. They’d like someone from Planned Parenthood and/or the Radical Handmaids on. I would like that too.
“This” is a story about how three Ottawa family docs, one of whom I know personally, do not prescribe the birth control pill. They tell their patients this up front, in a letter. The Ottawa Citizen article linked to above strongly implies this is anti-woman and anti-science. But is it?
Here’s some stuff I’ve written:
Finally, when we did a “roundtable” about the Pill with the PWPL team, here’s what we got. This included non-religious folks and people of different faiths.
Those are my views, passionately and publicly held, on the Pill. My points that I would like to see addressed are that a) the Pill has negative health repercussions that women are not told b) big Pharma has a vested interest in ensuring we are not told said negative effects and c) there are other, more female friendly ways of doing birth control, again, that we are not told.
I believe there ought to be a lot of common ground with those who are concerned about women’s rights being eroded here. Let the discussion begin.by
