I can remember back in the mid-late 60s, you could only get a prescription if you were going to be married within a couple of months. Of course, there were ways to get around that restriction! smile

There was also quite a brouhaha from lawmakers - birth control was such a threat to them. They were outraged that women wouldn't want to be 'barefoot and pregnant' and tied to the home. It took some time, but thank goodness things are a little different now.

I remember taking the pill for the first time. I thought it was one of the best inventions ever.
