MSNBC: Male birth control pill soon a reality — Implants, patches and creams also on the way My guess is that some men will use it but most will not. Not sure what that says about things from a gender equity point of view, but I would guess most men will be too weirded out to consider this and birth control will continue to be something that the woman is considered to be responsible for.

In general, sex and reproduction is biologically set up in an unfair way. It takes two to tango, but for the most part the heavy load of bringing a baby into the world falls to the mother. I’m not sure what the answer is but maybe the male birth control pill is part of it. I do believe (particularly for those like myself who object to abortion for moral reasons) that we need to come up with a better answer to the question of gender unfairness in this area.
