On July 11, 2012, the 100th Anniversary of the first London Eugenics Conference
Melinda Gates kicked off her "No Controversy" campaign in London to raise 4 billion dollars to put 120 million poor women in the developing world on birth control.

No Controversy?

Ms. Gates, you may have the best intentions but don't seem to understand what young women really need.

We need justice, not drugs, that may have serious health consequences.

Did you know that many types of oral contraceptives are classified as Group-1 carcinogens by the World Health Organization? That's the same as cigarettes and asbestos. How is this good for our health?

Depo-Provera and the pill do nothing to stop the spread of AIDS. In fact, they can make it worse. How is this good for women?

Ms. Gates, you say you want to help empower women, but how is it empowering to simply give us drugs so we don't get pregnant, then send us back to men who do not appreciate us? How is this empowering?

No Controversy?

You say you are against abortion but your partners include the largest abortion providers in the world. How can this be good for women? IPPF? Marie Stopes? Really?

We need better schools, better hospitals, better roads, but most of all, we need your help. Please help us get justice from our leaders and help us build culture of respect for women. Contraceptives do not help us get what we really need and they are not good for our health.

Ms. Gates, we can do better. Can't we?

Contraception is controversial, no matter what Melinda Gates says.
