Men have more time. This is true. Men can dick around and mess up then when they're 50 they can still have a family.

This video does pick my interest on the history of this issue, it's one of my favorite skits on "Drunk History" 😉👍 My favorite funny quote: man: "they're learning about their bodies and we don't like it".😁

What about Luis Ernesto Miramontes? It's a fact that he is the inventor of the pill.

Damn, all these women's husbands were like "I know if my wife gets pregnant again she'll die but I care more about my sexual satisfaction". :///

I think this is the first 👎 I've ever given a ESwomen video. I did a TON of research on this woman when I was in college and all I can say is that they should have just left this one alone, unless they had chosen to tell the entire story. And the name was changed to Planned Parenthood to give it a more innocent/empowerment connotation. Also, you say the narrator was drunk and probably didn't know the real story, but I find it ironic that she threw out a comment about MLK, when his family were some that publicly spoke out against Sanger. She made that connection and was sure to present him in a bad light, but completely down played Sanger's atrocities to mankind. She was the female Hitler. My drunk storytelling of this subject would have been completely different!!

Margret Sanger was a Eugenist. Birth control led to the sexual revolution which in turn is now ruining society.

Awe her reaction at the end touched my heart. As a women I feel the same way. It makes it easier to be able to use birth control when you and your significant other are not ready for children. Especially when the female wants to be able to focus on her career or academics.

The Representation of the People Act 1918 saw British women over 30 gain the vote, Dutch women in 1919, and American women won the vote on 26 August 1920 with the passage of the 19th Amendment (the Voting Rights Act of 1965 secured voting rights for racial minorities).

yeah no eugenics is not something to just, "nobodies perfect," over she is actively saying white women should be able to choice when of if they want kids but black women should be forced to never have any again. That's demonic.

@Alexandra del coro- the fact they try to frame Sanger as some sort of hero of the poor and downtrodden should be a hint this is NOT accurate history. If anything she was a HARDCORE eugenicist (the same as the Nazis) whose goal was to find a way for poor, minority, disabled, etc....basically anyone who wasn't well to do and be unable to carry on their "defective genes" and "unburden society" from them.

If in lieu of the Holocaust Hitler had just invented a pill and forced non-Aryan people to take it, he'd have a drunk history made about him and they'd have ended it with "Yes. Hitler was a eugenicist. But not everyone's perfect - MLK Jr. had affairs"

Y'all, they didn't talk about Margaret Sanger's views on race because this is about the history of the BIRTH CONTROL PILL, not a BIOGRAPHY of MARGARET SANGER. It's entirely possible to talk about the history of the pill and the pill alone without diving into to the inventors morals lmao.

They did skip some of the assuredly sordid parts, but the fact of the matter is at the end of the day, birth control is one of the most important inventions in human history, it simply just *is*, and the history of its creation should not sway people away from how valuable and useful it is. While I understand the fears of doctors in Black, Native, and Latino communities, we should remember that *no one is forced to take birth control pills nowadays*, and no, the government isn't trying to depopulate these communities with Planned Parenthood and the like. White people are trying to shut them down, in fact, and it's not by those who care about Black, Native, or Latino communities. :V There is also the matter that Margaret Sanger talked with women of the KKK, but to me I don't believe someone should be denied medical advances because of their beliefs no matter how much I disagree with them, as long as every is afforded access to it. It's a similar principle as me finding people who threaten women they hate with rape or sexual assault or "hope they get beaten by their husband" just because they hate certain women in question to be deplorable: If I have to explain to you why it's bad to do so, you're already too far gone. If we go around denying people basic rights to self-autonomy because we don't like them, then a right is not a right, it's just a privilege that can be given or taken away on a whim.

Margaret Sanger was a racist. Her idea had more to do with ridding the world of inferior people than liberating women. Just read her quotes.

yall are forgetting this is a comedy show. a show that aims to make people laugh isn't going to bring up everything you're talking about. also, y'all are forgetting that this is a drunk woman, not a historian. go read a textbook if that's what you want to see.

Let's not forget how eugenics affected those with mental illness or cognitive disabilities! Thousands were forcibly sterilized because they were not deemed intelligent or sane enough to procreate!

Planned Parenthood is a joke now. Nothing but murders then give the organs of their victims to the highest bid. "Oh but they give out birth control" Yeah and so does a doctor. Or a pharmacist.
They were also known to give out very low dose birth control pills so that ppl would get pregnant & come back to them for an abortion, to make money off both the abortion and the bodies.
