Reports from Australia say scientists are close to developing a birth control pill for men. A researcher at Monash University in Melbourne says it “would block the transport of sperm and then if you’re a young guy and you get to the stage where you wanted to start fathering children, you stop taking it and everything should be okay. It would be like an oral medication probably taken daily just like the female contraceptive pill.”

Sounds like a good thing for guys who don’t want to become fathers — and I’m all for anything that cuts down the number of unwanted babies — but what woman is going to believe a man who says it’s safe to have unprotected sex because he’s on the pill?
