"Male Pill"

As talk resurfaces of a male birth control pill, Dana Goldstein asks ” men out there: Would you take birth control pills if you knew they were safe and their effects were reversible? Would you trust yourself to remember to take them at the very same time every day?”

I say sure, why not, though it seems to me that most women are skeptical of the idea of offloading the responsibility to someone else, since a man can’t promise to become pregnant if he screws up. But for me (and probably for most people) it would all come down to whether or not there are some terrible pill-related side effects.
