I'm getting ready to cancel my subscription to the local newspaper. Today they printed a page long editorial about birth control pills being exactly like abortion. I have never read such disgusting misinformation in my life. And to make it worse, a WOMAN wrote it. Someone needs to explain to these idiots what the pill does...and that it's not just for preventing conception. Many women need the pill or certain types of IUDs to make their cycles more regular and more bearable. This isn't about birth control at all- it's about controlling women.
