In college, my friends used to jump on and off hormonal contraceptives like The Pill, NuvaRing, Yaz, and others based on the balancing of their monthly budget. Contraception was considered a luxury whether for the purpose of “safe sex”, lighter or fewer menstrual cycles, less acne, bigger boobs, etc. Now, it’s overwhelming that contraception has become the end all be all in women's lives.
Whereas a few years ago a girl would have to pay an insurance premium or fully out of pocket for hormonal contraception, now it’s free. Heck, it can even be shipped to you for free in California.

How can you go pink? Read three quick and important facts and pass it on:
This morning Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood, asked the question “Can one little pill change the world?” She asked this because today, August 1, 2012 women in the U.S. will begin to access free birth control with no co-payments.
With greater access to birth control beginning today, I would like to share some information on how the pill changed the world.
The pill – what’s the big deal. I’m in high school or college and it’s useful for not getting pregnant or for other health reasons. Why not use it? Everyone does, even a large number of 12 year olds.
I know this is a sensitive topic, but bear with me as this will be an introduction to looking at the impact of the pill . . .
Let’s begin with the following question regarding the safety of “the pill”: how is it that the pill is a cancer-causing carcinogen recognized by the U.N. International Agency on Research of Cancer and the National Toxicology Advisory Panel?
