100 Years of Birth Control

The conservatives may not want you to have birth control but that hasn’t stopped us yet. 100 years ago Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger coined the term birth control and women* have been fighting for it ever since. You’d think that by now our society would be able to move beyond “sex, dirty, bad, no” to a sex positive, consent respecting society.

Even before Sanger greater the amazing Planned Parenthood people have been trying to control their reproduction. From acacia gum, crocodile dung, to honey and cabbage humans have been trying to not have children since the beginning of documented history (withdrawal or pull out is even mentioned in the Book of Genesis! That’s the bible people).
We all know that most people like sex, they enjoy having sex, and they don’t always want children; why is birth control such a big deal if we all know this.

Maybe before the 200th anniversary of birth control we will be living in a better society.

*in this time women refers to any person who has the ability to give birth and would want birth control
