Ricki Lake to Produce Documentary on Dangers of the Pill

Ricki Lake to Produce Documentary on Dangers of the Pill February 18, 2014

I admit I never saw this coming.  Check out the story here which includes an anti-contraceptive pill tweet from Ms. Lake herself.    Here’s a sample of the article.

Lake will act as executive producer alongside director Abby Epstein in a full-length film based on Holly Grigg-Spall’s book Sweetening The Pill: or How We Became Hooked On Hormonal Birth Control.

“In the 50 years since its release, the birth control Pill has become synonymous with women’s liberation and has been thought of as some sort of miracle drug. But now it’s making women sick,” the two said in a statement. “Our goal with this film is to wake women up to the unexposed side effects of these powerful medications and the unforeseen consequences of repressing women’s natural cycles.”

In addition to the oral contraceptive pill, the film is said to deal with Yaz/Yasmin, the NuvaRing, and other forms of artificial contraception.

The duo, who worked together on three previous documentaries and a book on natural childbirth and nursing, plan for the film to be released in 2015.

“Oh whoa, this sounds pretty intense!” celebrity blogger Perez Hilton wrote. “We wonder if the film will scare everyone off the pill!”

From Perez Hilton’s mouth to God’s ears.   And if you’d like to be on the cutting edge, you can get ahead of the curve by picking up a copy of Holy Sex!  A Catholic Guide to Mind-Blowing, Toe-Curling, Infallible Loving, your practical, go-to guide for passionate, graceful, and  chemical-free loving.
