Fifty years of the birth-control pill

Fifty years ago, exactly today, Food and Drug Administration (FDA) gave permission to commercialize in the US the birth-control pill invented by Gregory Goodwin Pincus.

It's ideally a revolution that allows women to take control of their own bodies. But practically? Practically, without a proper sex education, I'm afraid that the birth-control pill is too often just a tool given to someone who has no idea how to use it.
