Did you know that I have the ability to learn a new language just by taking birth control? No, this isn’t a new birth control pill being put on the market, but instead a handy app from NARAL Pro-Choice America called No-Cost BC4ME. All you do is select who is going to be taking the birth control (options include yourself, your girlfriend, your granddaughter, etc), your/their age, the birth control method, and how many additional children you/they are going to want. It’s all handy-dandy little drop down menus and slides. Then it instantly calculates how much money you or they could save if the no-cost birth control law is passed, and what that saved money could “buy” – such as a class to learn a new language.
