This photo of a baby clutching a Mirena IUD implant has gone viral, probably because it implies he ripped it out as he exited the uterus, then waved it in a triumphant “FU” to his mom for trying to avoid an unplanned pregnancy. It is staged. I hope.
Here's a question: Why aren't IUDs more popular? There's no worrying about broken condoms or forgotten pills, they last for years and they're pretty much the definition of "set it and forget it." Can reproductive health advocates finally convince American women and doctors to consider them?
