Elizabeth Banks is telling those who wish to restrict access to birth control to suck a bag of dicks. She explains how it's used for a whole raft of things other than preventing unwanted pregnancies, including to help regulate periods in those struggling with fertility issues and improve the chances of successful IVF. "Just over a year ago, my son Felix was born via gestational surrogacy. He came out of me nine months early and because of my broken belly, his babycake was baked in a wonderful angel's oven and now — I can't believe it — he's a year old and walking. He has expanded my capacity for joy a thousand-fold." She then ponders what it would be like if employers had a say in your reproductive health, as a proposed bill in Arizona tried to enable. "A girlfriend and I recently wondered what would be more mortifying: having to tell her male employer she needed birth control to mitigate a heavy flow or just bleeding all over herself in the office?" she added. Solid gold. [iVillage]
