Certain gynecologists had been authorized to select clients for the trial test because they weren't sure of the total aftereffects of this pill. In Waco in 1962, I got a doctor to prescribe the pill. I was so enamored with the fact that it was supposed to be foolproof.
Tell that to the thousands of women who get pregnant while on the pill.
When the pill was first launched, the medical director of Planned Parenthood refused to give the pill to unmarried women until they had had their second illegitimate child. Eventually, the board, which I was on, persuaded him to change the rule so a woman could get on the pill after having just one child out of wedlock.
And giving single women The Pill did NOTHING WHATSOEVER to promote promiscuity. (/sarcasm).
Access to the pill has improved, but even if you can't pay anything, you can still buy it subsidized from Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood pushes everything but abortion.
Yeah, that would explain all those marketing tools to promote abortion...
The Sixties. It was such a naive time.
