Securing the Pathways to Blue Family Life
The first appointment to Planned Parenthood is some sort of a woman's rite of passage when it comes to her sexual awakening and pregnancy concerns. The use of contraceptive methods used to be unlawful for the general public, particularly minors and the unmarried, although access to pills and condoms was possible, if not for shady operations. These conflicts between formal rules and informal convenience only increased the separation between rich and poor, the more experienced and the naïve. This chapter focuses on the advocacy with respect to the legalization of access to contraception, looking back at the history of birth control devices and their availability. It also explains how the shortage of reliable birth control has become a hindrance for women's surge towards economic equality, as well as a stepping stone for the development of the red and blue paradigm dichotomy.
