Despite medical complications from contraception, and religious objections to the abortifacient pill, Melinda gates plans to "get" 110 million women on the pill; what if they say, "No, thank you."
"Melinda Gates is on a mission to help women around the world decide when and if they have children.
"'What I'm trying to do is bend the curve,' the co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation said in an interview with Walt Mossberg at the Code Conference on Wednesday morning, joined by her husband, Bill Gates.
"That curve represents the pace of getting 110 million more women around the world access to birth control, which given current trends would take until 2035. Melinda Gates says the foundation is trying to shorten that to 2020."--Arik Hesseldahl, Recode.com
