Name This Drug

"Can you imagine the FDA approving a drug that, say, increased the risk of blood clots, hypertension, stroke, heart attacks, breast cancer, and migraines for women?" asks Aaron D. Wolf — Pharmaceutical Holiday. Need help? He continues: "And fathom, if you will, the absurd notion that such a drug could be approved for the treatment of something that isn’t even a disease, a genetic abnormality, or a mental disorder but the very way that God designed women’s bodies to work."

How very Brave New World! And yet wasn't this and the rest of the first wave of dystopian novels written so that they wouldn't have to be prophetic?

Today, one could create a dystopia in which it is mandatory to give little boys to make them more like little girls and to give women this new drug to make them more like men. (Oh yes, don't forget the hermphrodite fish or whatever you want to imagine!) But we're already getting there, aren't we?

Mark, funny how environmentalists haven't raised this issue, isn't it? I mean, what could be more unnatural than artificial birth control?

Enbrethiliel, perhaps you could write that novel!

Yes they have too raised the issue. The reason you know is because environmentalist did raise the issue.

Let me restate then: Environmental scientists raised the issue; environmentalists chose to ignore it.

Obviously all too many do, just as others who trumpet women's health have all too ignored the problems with contraception and abortion causing a legion of health problems because the sexual revolution trumps all else.

But I need look no further than the bumper stickers on my own cars too see that not all environmentalists ignore those issues.
