I just read this news article about how 1/5 of married women in other parts of the world still don't have access to good birth control. http://consumer.healthday.com/Article.asp?AID=674265 That seems so completely crazy to me. Our country spends billions feeding other countries, wouldn't it make more sense and be cheaper in the long run to simply help them with birth control?

I have always thought it made more sense to pay for birth control than food for third world countries.

Watching someone starve makes more sense than making sure they take their bc pills every day.
