Happy Thanks, Birth Control Day, everybody!!
That's right! This is a real holiday people! If you didn't know about it, don't worry. It probably has something to do with the fact that this is the very first year that we're celebrating it!
While not everyone was aware that there was cause for celebration, some of Hollywood's leading ladies have already professed their love for the pill that prevents unplanned parenthood!
Katy Perry has opened up about the possibility of being a momma, and although she says she does want a family down the road, she's not ready quite just yet:
"I love being in love, I love the idea of marriage and making babies — but not yet. Not until I'm 30. I basically chew my birth control tablets — I chew them like vitamin C, I'm like, 'nomnomnomnom.'"
Reality starlet JWOWW also says she isn't ready to start a family of her ow any time soon. However, in addition to birth control, she says she had another trick up her sleeve to prevent pregnancy: Snooki!
"Nicole was my birth control. Having a pregnant friend is different from living with someone that is pregnant. I was like her boyfriend on some levels, being there for her and realizing she made an amazing transformation. She did a 180."
Sex, pregnancy, and more sex have never really been taboo subject on Lena Dunham's hit sitcom Girls, so it's no surprise that she would be pretty open about it in everyday life as well!
The actress/director/producers said:
"You want a guy who cares whether you get health insurance, and specifically whether you get birth control."
It's so great to hear ladies speaking out about and issue that affects so many people!
In fact, according to The National Campaign to Prevent Teen And Unplanned Pregnancy, 99% of sexually active women have used birth control, and 90% of adults agree it's the most responsible way to avoid pregnancy!
No wonder they've decided to dedicate an entire day to it!!
