    Rather a dumb statement given that the world population is heading for 10 billion while we screw up the environment that will be needed to sustain it.

    No contraception = people shooting themselves in the foot.

    I think banning birth control isn't the right move, in fact I think that's pretty messed up. I'm no academic or scholar, just an ordinary woman who thinks that having the right to birth control taken away from you isn't exactly fair. Sure there are other forms of BC but I feel like the pill really gives a woman the confidence that they have control over their own reproductive system. Taking that away seems like a slap in the face to women if you ask me.
