Documentarians Abby Epstein & Ricki Lake join Jameela this week to discuss their documentary - [The Business Of Birth Control.] (https://www.thebusinessof.life/the-business-of-birth-control) They discuss the history of the contraceptive pill, how many of its side effects have been downplayed by Big Pharma, the dangers surrounding the birth control pill, the importance of women being able to make an informed choice, why the media refuses to talk about this documentary, and more.
**DISCLAIMER - To be clear, this episode is not anti-pill. It is pro-contraceptive pills but also pro-informed consent, pro-transparency, pro-accountability, and pro-more effort to make the pill as safe as possible.
