  1. Arizona Schools Are Literally Ripping Pages on Contraception out of Biology Books

    Well this is as stupid as [REDACTED].

    The Gilbert Public Schools Governing Board in Arizona became displeased with a section in a high school biology book that described how an abortion-inducing drug works after complaints from a Christian law organization called Freedom, so they advised school officials to redact it with extreme prejudice. I can't wait until someone goes full-on Fahrenheit 451 on them.

  2. Planned Parenthood Now Offers Birth Control and Counseling Online

    Everything's coming up ovaries.

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is currently experimenting with an incredible microchip that could be embedded into the body to provide convenient and reliable protection for far longer than any currently available hormonal birth control.

  8. It’s Really Hard to Castrate a Hippo, but Vets Have a New Technique to Get the Job Done. Sorry, Hippos

    Bad news for hippos, but also probably not great new for vets.

    We've got a lot of methods of birth control at our disposal, and on principle, we are big fans of all of them, because dang it, family planning is a good thing. Yes, we are fans of things for boring reasons sometimes. Despite our best laid plans, though, accidents still happen. That's why it's always good to have a backstop, and for many women and couples, that backstop is Plan B. Also known as the morning-after pill, Plan B can prevent an egg from ever being fertilized. We repeat, since there's been some confusion...you know what? Just check out the above video from AsapSCIENCE, who once again just knock it out of the park with snappy answers to our stupid questions. Oh, and also brightly colored pictures. We like pictures.
