The Most Intimate Innovation of This Century! Birth Control Pill

So is it TV, Internet, iPod, iPad, CD, DVD ………. No!

The Time Magazine suggests that the Birth Control Pill is the one that affected us most intimately!

Richard Stengel, Managing Editor of Time Magazine writes;

“In 2010 the importance of women’s health is more pressing than ever; hundreds of thousands of women die in pregnancy and childbirth each year. Counties that educate and empower women tend to be less violent and unstable and more likely to develop socially and economically”

While I agree that women empowerment by providing equal opportunity in decision making, education, health and other aspects of democratic culture is vitally important, but I fail to understand how developed nations will cope with reduced birth rate and aging generation. The only option most such nations are looking at is “Encourage Immigrants” to come, live, work and produce the next generation for these countries.

It’s a challenging question; We should remember “one size does not fit all”!
