BITTER LITTLE PILL?


Drugmakers now have come up with a chewable contraceptive for women 35 and younger.

The spearmint-flavored tablet, that also can be swallowed without chewing, works just like birth-control pills already on the market, but offers a new option for women who don't like swallowing pills.

But what about men? In November, MSNBC reported the male birth-control pill is almost ready. So what's taking drugmakers so long to get them on the market?

There must be some logical reason ... such as ... if men can't remember to put the toilet seat down, what makes us believe they'll remember to take a pill every day?

I hope some kids do not think it's chewing gum.

If a woman does not want to get pregnant, she.. and only she should make certain that she is taking any/all precautions -herself and never trust the man! Conversely, if a man does not want to become a father, it is up to him to take his own precautions and never trust the woman's word..sorry, but love and sex is blind (deaf and dumb)..

All men need to do is get one vasectomy. Then they don't need to take any pills.

One is told in the urologist's office that vasectomies are not 100% fail proof.

No contraceptive is 100 percent effective but 99.999 percent is pretty close! Why is it always up to the woman!!! Men need to step up and get snipped! After years of hormones to prevent pregnancy, then months of being pregnant and giving birth, it is about time for the MAN to DO SOMETHING!!!!
