Gates Foundation is funding research into it, because they think men and the surrounding culture are "ready for it".
Ultrasound as a reversible male contraceptive: James Tsuruta and Paul Dayton of the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill in the U.S. will study the ability of ultrasound to temporarily deplete testicular sperm counts for possible use as new contraceptive method for men.This certainly isn't a surprise, but it is sad.
Contraception has caused a myriad of social, medical, relational, spiritual, and cultural issues.
They have set up a website to give info and try to continue to push the issue.
My response is the same as always - contraception is bad & children (and fertility) are a blessing, not a curse. Raquel Welch is even waking up to the facts.
The fact is, our culture worships sex and won't give up this god easily. Once sex is divorced from fertility then it is about selfish pleasure. Once it is about us and our desires only, it becomes a god.
May the One True God have mercy.
