Chinese doctors and nurses are prescribing birth control pills to people who don’t want to have children because they’re scared about the effects of the pill on their reproductive systems.
But while the pill has been banned in the country since the 1950s, it has slowly but surely become more widely available.
Now the government is threatening to cut off the pills entirely, according to The Washington Post, and if it’s forced to, many people are likely to opt out.
The Chinese government has long been known to ban products deemed unsafe for the human body.
But this year’s crackdown on the pill comes on top of decades of efforts to ban any form of birth control that isn’t FDA approved.
And the pill is a big part of that: according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 20 million pills are sold every year.
So what is it about the pill that’s making people go away?
It all comes down to a new twist in the Chinese culture: the desire to be the “good wife,” according to a recent survey conducted by the government.
In a recent interview with The Washington Times, Chinese women who said they wanted to have a child before the age of 40 said that they “don’t want a husband who doesn’t understand their situation and the needs of their children.”
In other words, they want to be like a husband, but they also want to feel like a wife.
And that means not being able to conceive naturally.
For a while now, the pill’s been inching closer to the mainstream in China, but it still carries a stigma.
When I was younger, I had to tell people that I didn’t want kids.
Even now, I’m afraid to say that I want kids because I think the people who are telling me to don’t even want to know what I’m thinking.
The pill has also come under fire from other parts of society, too.
For instance, the government has banned the use of the brand name Viagra, which it believes is a “symbol of seduction.”
Viagra is an erectile dysfunction drug that’s used to treat erectile disorders in women.
The U.S. is also trying to ban Viagra.
The drug was approved in China last year, but its use is limited and there’s no regulation around its production and distribution.
So far, the Chinese government hasn’t taken any action.
The country also has a very high number of abortions, which makes it even more of a taboo to discuss birth control in the West.
In 2017, a study published in the journal BMC Medicine found that only 3 percent of Chinese women have used a birth control method in the past year.
The government has been cracking down on birth control since the mid-2000s, but the pill remains popular.
The National Health and Family Planning Commission estimates that 80 percent of women in China use the pill at some point in their lives.
