First, a link to a CNN feature in which various people (writers, commentators, politicians, etc) talk about the significance of the Pill. Note stupid, uninformed comment about Fertility Awareness by Sara Benincasa: CNN on Pill
Similar piece in Time Magazine: Time on Pill
Rather different piece on Alternet re Pill's effect on population and water supply: Alternet on Pill and waterAnd if you missed the piece that "Need to Know" did end up airing, which was exclusively about the Pill, you can either watch it during the "full episode" video, on this page, and/or you can watch an extended interview with Erica Jong ("The Pill, Then and Now"), only part of which aired during the show, also on this page. If you're watching the whole episode, the Pill segment starts just before 43 minutes: "Need to Know" on Pill
Enough about the damn Pill! Next post will definitely be about something else.
