In this article, the writer notes that the history of oral contraceptives in the United States and the world is one of many controversies. The writer points out that the fight by forward minded women and men, attempting to create a society where every child was a planned and welcomed member to a loving family, has been long and arduous and certainly is not over yet. The writer discusses that the issues surrounding oral contraceptives are varied but include perspectives of ethical/moral grounds, issues regarding the science of development, issues regarding pharmaceutical economics, issues regarding general economics such as access in underserved populations, and more common economic arguments about benefits versus cost. The writer concludes that future pharmacological research and development will continue to improve upon oral contraceptives, possibly further decreasing the unwanted side effects associated with the pill.
