This month marks the 50th anniversary of the Pill, and there’s been some interesting coverage of it by the media. Margaret Marsh, one of the first researchers granted access to the personal letters of the Pill’s co-developer, John Rock, discusses his Catholicism, among other Pill tidbits. The Guardian points out that 200 million women still need access to it worldwide. CBS’s Early Show had an insultingly short segment with Gloria Steinem (!) and Hillary Swank (?) — hey, guess that’s better than nothing. Ob/gyn Christiane Northrup goes over the more medical aspects of the Pill on the Huffington Post. One blogger reminds us of the theory that the Pill-induced standard of a monthly period is actually unnatural. And Time’s recent cover article was a nice review of the history of the Pill — that is, until we came to this line:
