Asides from what has been said already, I'd say fatherhood is already a man's choice. If you don't want to be a father, don't impregnate women. Really not that hard of a choice!

There should be better contraceptives for males than condoms and vasectomies.

Big Pharma should come up with a male birth control pill and / or an injection.
Religious types would not like it. But, men would be on a more even playing field.

Supposedly there is a male contraceptive in the making now. If there is, then it's about friggin time. Women have always been blamed for unplanned pregnancy like it's our responsibility alone.

There actually is a brilliant male contraceptive in development right now that's called a reversible vasectomy. It's a polymer that's injected into the vas deferens that stays there permanently until flushed out. IIRC, in n a trial of 1000 men in India 100% of them had a live sperm count of zero, and when you are ready to reverse it, it only takes another single injection to flush the polymer. It only costs about 50 bucks. However, the very cheapness is the reason it's slow in development in the US. No one stands to make any money from it and a lot of pharma companies stand to lose, so no one wants to put any money behind it. Also the US did not accept the trials that were done in India so they had to start over from zero here and it will be another 10 years or so in development. Totally exciting and brilliant, isn't it?

It sounds like it could be a $1000 procedure, and another $1000 to reverse it.
If it cost $100 it would be a $2000 procedure in the U. S.

If it cost $100 dollars it would be FREE in Canada*.

You keep telling yourself that we're all dying waiting for treatment here, INDY. Must be what you need to make yourself feel better about your insurance and out-of-pocket expenses for yourself and your family every year. I'm investing that money and it's paid off pretty well.

I might be imagining things but I thought INDY posted a little while ago about how he came to Niagara Falls and then paid something like $12 for a hamburger and was amazed at the price.
