A book by misogynists? By women-hating, anti-science cretins?
No. A book by feminist Barbara Seaman, who wanted to draw attention to the negatives of the Pill. Because she favoured–wait for it–full information for women. Because she knew that women died in the testing of the Pill and instead of discontinuing trials, they pushed on. Because she knew the history of the development of the Pill, which had little to do with women’s empowerment (read Malcolm Gladwell’s essay on this if you can get your hands on it, fascinating stuff).
Information is power. And if three Ottawa doctors have more information than the rest and the chutzpah to withstand attacks in explaining their views, then more power to them.by
