Should Birth Control Pills Be Low Cost or Free?

5 years ago

Sometimes the news cycle can feel a bit like deja vu all over again. Back in the 60s when it was first invented, The Pill was fodder for all manner of contentious news articles, protests and hyperbole. It was either going to lead to the downfall of society or the emancipation of women. Strange -- it's over 50 years later, and neither one of these scenarios has come true entirely.

What's apparent is that there is still a ton of disagreement in our society about the place of oral contraceptives. The latest battlefront has to do with who (or what) is going to pay for them. We'd like to know what the BlogHer community thinks. Please tell us on the weekly Opinion Poll!
