There are a few different ways that you could approach a speech about birth control.  You could focus on contraceptive and reproductive rights as basic human rights and look at the legal controversies surrounding access to birth control.  You could discuss types of birth control.  You could discuss how birth control policies impact things like teen pregnancy and teen sexual activity.  You could even discuss birth control and the religious implications of its use or widespread availability.  In other words, there are many ways that you could go.   We are providing three main points for several different ways to approach the topic.

For types of birth control you could separate your three main points to hormonal methods of birth control, barrier methods of birth control, and surgical methods of birth control.

For reproductive rights, you could separate your three main points into looking at the impact of different legal cases on the right to access birth control.  In the United States, you could choose Skinner v. Oklahoma, Eisenstadt v. Baird, and of course Roe v. Wade. 

For the history of birth control, you could examine how people approached birth control prior to the invention of hormonal birth control pills in the 20th century.  Topics we would include would be silphium, condoms, and pulling out.

For birth control and religious implications, we would focus on whether the religious texts of various world religious traditions specifically prohibit birth control and provide textual support for those statements.  We would then divide it into three religions.  You could select Christianity, Judaism, and Islam, but you might want to make it more interesting by substituting a non-Abrahamic religion for at least one of your main points of discussion
