May as well test it under near-future, real-world conditions: have every pill smuggled in from Mexico before being taken.

I think all adult males should be forced to take it until they are married.  It should reduce the number of abortions.  What, that violates body autonomy?

Don't stop at married men. Married men can cheat on their spouses. Require married men to provide a notary signed affidavit that they will not sex anyone other than their legal spouse - and then mandate a 72-hour cooling off period where they are required to meet with clergy to discuss the responsibility of life before allowing them to stop taking the pill.

This is a common (and shiatty) take on the Roe decision.

"The Supreme Court shiat on women so let's shiat on men"


I see it all over social media.
  * Hurrr mandatory vasectomies for all men until married
  * Durr force men to take the male pill


I get it. Women are angry. They should be. But the misandry is simply making a lot of men afraid to engage at all. "If I say anything this lynch mob will turn on me".

This should be a fight waged by men and women against the GQP and their American Taliban. But if the fight becomes the "She woman man-haters club" women will be fighting it alone.

I think it's more sardonically pointing out the hypocrisy of the decision, rather than something they're actually advocating to happen.

After they overturn Griswold vs CT male or female birth control can be banned in red states.  Even for married couples.  What could go wrong?

Male birth control will become a sacrament.

Remove what you said after the first sentence. Being married isn't enough.

Birth control being the default, even putting it in the water supply, would benefit everyone. Actually, scratch that, had to be air. People can filter water or find other water sources.

But conceiving being an active choice instead of an accident would be a massive societal improvement.

The real hitch is figuring out who is allowed to decide and approve a couple that wants to have a baby getting the antidote long enough to conceive. And no, I will not be signing off on priests being the deciders. Even letting both members of the couple decide together would be a big step forward though, without an approval panel.

It's still stupid and tone deaf. The Supreme court isn't made up solely of males nor was the decision to overturn Roe vs. Wade strictly along gender lines. A female Justice voted to strike it down as well. You'd do well to recognize this was along political, not gender lines. The idiotic argument is only driving a wedge between allies and virtually ensures you'll lose more rights.

Maybe in the future both women and men will have some sort of internal always-on birth control and both would have to actively turn theirs off to conceive.
