The male model of infertility

Oregon Daily Emerald (article)

A hypothetical situation:
"February 3: Tests on protein injections are still not complete, but the Food and Drug Administration finally puts on its reading glasses and realizes that male contraceptive pills, based on hormones and approved in Europe for some time now, are 100 percent effective. A communal "d'oh!" is released. Unfortunately, just as someone is about to remedy the situation, a whole new slew of prescription medications arrive seeking approval. Side effects could include headache, drowsiness, addiction on par with morphine, dubious acts involving hot pepper sauce and all-expenses-paid vacations in Bermuda for our employees. "You bet we'll spend our time testing your drug!" Endorsement of the male birth control pill is put on hold. "

...this leads me to think you have no idea what you are talking about... should that suprize me? prob not..
