Raquel Welch takes aim at the Pill

It's the 50th anniversary of the birth control pill, and most of the media coverage has treated it like the Apollo moon landing. A refreshing contrast comes from actress and sex symbol Raquel Welch, who aptly puts her finger on oral contraception as a primary cause of the decline of marriage. While her article for CNN's retrospective on the Pill isn't quite the Catechism of the Catholic Church, she does offer personal insight on why the "miracle breakthrough" of 50 years ago has a lot to do with the ethical carnage we're dealing with today. Apparently Welch's new book takes a similar traditional approach toward marriage.
