Loretta Lynn's 'now I've got the pill'
 

 

The legendary country singer Loretta Lynn sang:

 

All these years I've stayed at home
While you had all your fun
And every year thats gone by
Another babys come
There's a gonna be some changes made
Right here on nursery hill
You've set this chicken your last time
'Cause now I've got the pill

 

For all the lyrics some of which are very sharp, biting, and revealing.

 

 

An amazing time line of birth control and the development of "the pill" begins three thousand years ago and involves many crusaders and scientists plus some luck.
