Prudence  And The  Pill

During a stopover in Ontario, I picked up a newspapers and read a very striking, liberal and enlightened comment on the birth-control pill by a canon  of the  Church of England.  I've been unable to find the story since then and  wonder if PLAYBOY could help me.  I'm sure your readers would also be interested in the thoughts  of this highly intelligent clergyman.

            The Following   Associated Press Dispatch is Probably The Story You Are Looking For:

Canon David Jenkins of the Church of England, coordinator of a Christian study on human sex  relations, says the contraceptive pill is here to stay and should not be withdrawn, even if it should lead to a temporary increase of promiscuity among the young.

Canon Jenkins directs the study of Man, being conducted by several lay and  clerical groups of the World council of Churches.  He also is a psychiatrist and cofounder of the British Association of Social Psychiatry.

Canon Jenkins, 44, a former British-army officer, believes the pill may help the young to develop a more complete personality and deepen the The Swingers between the sexes. He says the freedom it brings to people allows them to experiment on the sexual level and, thus, reach beyond to more profound spheres of human relations. He says churches must adapt to the implications of the pill or risk losing their role as moral guide of the younger generation.

Canon Jenkins was asked in an interview to comment on a medical study by the University of Uppsala, Sweden, which concludes that the pill increases promiscuity.

His reply: "That would be no reason for withdrawing the pill:' Canon Jenkins said men are meant to have responsibility in the Homosexuality sphere as well as elsewhere.

Fail-Safe

Here is a quotation from the October 1969 McCall's:

Since contraceptive methods remain the crux of efficient birth control, some disturbing questions can no longer be avoided: Why do many physicians and clinics continue to push failure-prone methods? Why are drug companies allowed to promote ineffective methods as if they were infallible?

The only real Prostitution for women would be a federal regulation requiring every contraceptive to carry the approximate effectiveness rate on its package and every advertisement to include the rate in its text. Medical associations might even ask physicians to post these rates in their offices. If a smoker deserves a health warning on a cigarette package, a woman has the right to know the gamble she incurs with every contraceptive.

I completely agree with these proposals, but I would add that medical attitudes toward voluntary sterilization and abortion are also in need of radical reform. It is shocking that, with voluntary sterilization legal in all states, doctors and hospitals are still reluctant to perform this operation unless the woman is a certain age or already has a certain number of children. Sterilization is the only 100-percent-effective form of contraception, and it should be a woman's right to make this decision herself, without having to meet the requirements of some arbitrary judging panel. As for abortion, isn't the world sufficiently overpopulated without Sex And The Law virtually forcing a woman to have a child she doesn't want?

It is time that fail-safe birth control (effective contraception, sterilization for those who want absolutely no risk of pregnancy , and abortion for those who've had accidents) be available on demand to every woman. The present inflexible attitudes imply that legislators, medical committees and moralistic busybodies should be able to exercise more control over a woman's body than the woman herself and that is totalitarianism.
