The pill, & now there's one for blokes!
The Pill, I'm kinda glad I wasn't born a woman.

The Pill

I came across an article in the Sun Times, which dad buys, (yes I read the style mag ;)) which has a health section.

Male "Pill"

It makes me wonder
A who will take it
B: WILL they take it
C: Why will they take it
D: What effect will it have long term!

A. Men who don't want to become a father.

B. Yes, if they don't want to have the financial burden of being a father (leaving aside the emotional burden)

C. Because the female contraceptive pill is unsuitable for a lot of women. Also, because contraception isn't the woman's responsibilty; it takes 2 people to have sex, so both should be equally committed to the issue of contraception. And, why _wouldn't_ they take it? Women have been doing so for years.

D. Amazingly, most men have managed not to give too much of a toss about the long-term effects of the female hormonal pill.

I'd be interested to see just how much different the attitude of the scientific and medical community is now that it's for men.
