BUT ... HOW?

The Herald Sun reports:

Contraceptives causing pregnancies

THREE contraceptives used by 240,000 Australians have caused scores of women to have unwanted pregnancies …

”Failed to prevent”, maybe.

Obviously tainted contraceptives.

Just go here on Mondays (would that be Tuesdays where you are?):


You can listen either live or to a stream of that day's show.

"Falling pregnant?" Is this typical Aussie wording? It seems to me that pregnancy requires a little more activity than falling.

If 240,000 women are using just three contraceptives, I don't care if they'er ribbed or not, there's going to be pregnancies.

When did they start using sperm as a contraceptive?

Yes, Falling Pregnant is the Oz wording.

And if you read the fine print in that story, they eventually note that this is a much LOWER failure rate than with other contraceptives.
