I agree. If both genders could decide not to have children, it could cause a crash in the birth rate so huge that it will effect society as a whole. How that would affect us I can't say. Going to sperm banks may become the norm for women that want kids, but can't find a man that wants to have kids with her.
We may develop an artificial uterus to make it easier on men to be single fathers if they can't find a woman that wants to have a child with them. Some countries may even out law birth control for some people, do to how serious the population crash might become.
There will still be people that want kids, but the odds of them meeting each other and want to have each others children, would require a huge change in our way of thinking. For one thing men will be less likely to want a child at the same age a woman wants a child, and men may not be willing to go off the pill if custody laws don't become more fair to men. Regardless of what happens, it will have a huge impact on society.
Oh man, it would be awesome! Over 50% of pregnancies are unplanned so even if we could cut that in half it would be huge. There would also be fewer cases of people stealing sperm etc... I honestly don't see why guys aren't thrilled about the prospect.
It does exist, it's called a condom. If you don't think a condom counts the a vasectomy certainly is no different than some of the options women have. But you are referring to the pill aren't you, which leads me to ask why you think men would take it any more than women do?
It's funny you should say that. Since the advent of birth control, their has been a huge power imbalance in favor of women because ultimately they chose (through choice of contraception, or maternal rights) whether a baby would be born and males have had very little say in the matter. With male birth control men could choose whether they would like to get a girl pregnant or not, which would change social dynamics immensely.
BraveHeart's right. Why would men be any more responsible than women in this issue? Are you just saying it'd be a lot more effective, or that the combination of both would result in many fewer unplanned pregnancies?
Roe vs Way changed a lot of our population. Keep the politics out of it please. If Roe vs Wade never happened there would be twice the size of under privileged kids living on the streets and ghetto and a ton of crime would of resulted from it. Abortion has helped our population in the US. Our population only drops if people die. You would somehow get a number of women who kept babys and who didn't. That would get you a number of how much our population is affected by unplanned pregnacies. Our population will decrease and it will happen soon with the babyboomer generstion passing away. Nowadays people don't want that many kids. One is enough. Now if male or even female birth control was widely available to people around the earth. Our population over time would decrease.
