Birth control for men

This week’s Time magazine on the latest R&D on birth control drugs for men:

But nothing stalls science faster than questionable demand. The belief was–and often still is–that men are just not interested in controlling their fertility. “Even at the best of times, most men are not great at thinking through the consequences of their actions,” opined London’s Guardian in a story that took note of the Australian study. By that logic, though, men shouldn’t be flying fighter planes either.

Quite. How about increased contraceptive responsibility on the part of men, and less flying of fighter planes on the part of everyone?
