More and more American women are losing their jobs these days, and many are blaming it on the new national birth control system.

Though effective, there have been unforeseen consequences of this method of birth control.

Phase two: profit! Through selling birth control, STD testing, and abortion.
Right-wingers call themselves "pro-life," but what's life-affirming about fighting against affordable clinics & family planning support?
The religious radicals say they want fewer abortions but crusade against all contraception, an effective way to reduce unwanted pregnancies.
