ANother Page in the History of a Jagged Little Pill

This report didn't really surprise me all that much. In the history of oral contraceptives, the death of women has figured largely, and I am not referring to the fact that "the pill" prevents the implantation of the embryo. Because of the powerful hormones in question and the large doses involved, at least in the early formulations, several women died due to excessive bleeding. This becomes doubly cursed an action when you add that when the men's version was created and tested, it's only side effect was a slight decline in testicular size. All testing stopped immediately. The pill is proving to be the greatest and most tragic experimentever performed on women.
