Letter: Paying for the Pill

Paying for the Pill

Sir: Madeleine Simms (letter, 3 January) carefully overlooks the fact that people may be quite happy to pay the pounds 40 charge for the Pill, provided it went towards improving medical services for the sick. Is it seriously being suggested that large numbers of people would deliberately risk pregnancy because they are unwilling to contribute to the cost of their own contraceptives?
