Many people think that the United States is responsible for the invention of the birth control pill. While Americans were some of the first people to use birth control and accept it they were not the inventors of this. An Australian immigrant was in Mexico City and was studying human sexuality. Carl Djerassi was the first person to develop this pill but he did not have the means to test it out. Other scientists picked up on this research and this idea. By the time the birth control pill hit the market everyone thought it was an invention from the United States.
