It was illegal in many states for married couples to use the Pill until 1965, when the Supreme Court declared that such laws violate the right to privacy. (You think?)
Loretta Lynn's 1975 musical homage, "The Pill," made top-10 country charts. Lyrics: "The feelin' good comes easy now/since I've got the Pill."
The Pill is currently used by 12 million women in the U.S.
There are more than 40 different brands of birth-control pills in America. Cheers to that!
