Israel Delays Permission to Manufacture Oral Contraceptive Pill

Download PDF for this date

Health officials intimated today that delays in permitting manufacture of an oral contraceptive pill stemmed from considerations of a social and moral nature and from the Government’s policy of encouraging large families.

A local drug company said the delay was endangering possibilities of establishing an export trade in such contraceptives. The company said it had already received large orders for the pill from a number of Far Eastern countries.
