Family planning is finally here, ladies! The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved the first birth control pill, Enovid, a marvelous little tablet that can prevent pregnancy. It’s as easy as taking as a daily vitamin, and it works by increasing the production of the same hormones your body produces when you’re pregnant — thereby stopping further ovulation. Your body thinks your pregnant, but you’re not actually pregnant!
“When I got married I was still in college, and I wanted to be certain that I finished,” a 23-year-old teacher told us. “Now we want to buy a home. With the pill I know I can keep earning money and not worry about an accident that would ruin everything.”
Searle, the pharmaceutical company, was reluctant to commercialize Enovid after chemist Frank Colton’s accidentally developed the pill in their labs a few years ago — but the female revolution is finally here! It costs only $50 cents and will soon be available at your local pharmacy.
