Male birth control pill, implants, patches, creams and other contraceptives on the way

There is considerable controversy about the Feds new mandate that health insurance companies provide female contraceptives upon request.

The White House fact sheet “Women’s Preventive Services and Religious Institutions” says nothing about providing free contraceptives to men, which is one more example of unconstitutional gender discrimination by government edict.

Here’s the good news…

SEATTLE — Forty-year-old Scott Hardin says he’s glad that men may soon have a new choice when it comes to birth control. But, he adds, he would not even consider taking a male hormonal contraceptive. Hardin is like many men who are pleased to hear they may have a new option but are wary of taking any type of hormones.

 “I would rather rely on a solution that doesn’t involving medicating myself and the problems women have had with hormone therapy doesn’t make me anxious to want to sign on to taking a hormone-type therapy,” says Hardin, who is single and a college administrator.

For the first time, a safe, effective and reversible hormonal male contraceptive appears to be within reach. Several formulations are expected to become commercially available within the near future. Men may soon have the options of a daily pill to be taken orally, a patch or gel to be applied to the skin, an injection given every three months or an implant placed under the skin every 12 months, according to Seattle researchers.

“It largely depends on how funding continues. The technology is there. We know how it would work,” says Dr. Andrea Coviello, who is helping to test several male contraceptives at the Population Center for Research in Reproduction at the University of Washington in Seattle… CLICK HERE TO READ THE REST OF THE ARTICLE

    Show me results Jack. MRA's can whine all they want about unconstitutional injustices (and they are injustices), all they want but until there is at least one positive result it all means nothing. Call me defeatist all you want but I'm much to old to believe that sanity will be restored to the western world within my lifetime. The scales were tipped in the decades before I was born and have only grown worse for western white males all my life. If there is to be real change I would like to SEE it before I die.

    I have been hearing that the "male pill" is just around the corner and coming soon for years now. Feminism and Political Correctness have constantly stood in the way of male reproductive rights so no offense to NCFM, the MRM, or John Schieszer but I'm not going to hold my breath. The Femi-PC crowd will not allow reproductive right for men any time soon.

waybackmachineOver the years millions of people worldwide have visited a National Coalition For Men website. Also over the years the site has changed dramatically, been taken down, moved, and otherwise uprooted. In those processes much information was lost, not recovered, and does not appear on this site. However you can see earlier versions and many of the extraordinary accomplishments of NCFM back to 1996 by using the WayBackMachine. In the search box type www.ncfm.org

Attend if you can!!
