Evening  Session:

Discussion and   Preview of the Trailer for documentary entitled “Sweetening the Pill” 

Could some pharmaceutical birth-control methods be having side-effects that are more dangerous than women realize?  The birth control pill was one of the greatest inventions of the 20th century.  But decades after its introduction, women are being prescribed birth control at a young age and are taking it for years without realizing there may be safer options for avoiding pregnancy.  Featuring interviews with parents and friends of those who’ve died after complications related to synthetic hormones, Ricki Lake and Abby Epstein question how much the public really know about their medical effects in their new documentary “Sweetening the Pill.
