Contraception

Perhaps one of the most important inventions of the 20th Century was the development of effective contraception technology especially the birth control pill. The hormone-free male version of this pill currently under research could make women much healthier with minimal impact on male health and long term fertility. Let us hope that this drug proves safe and effective.

yes, that will acutally improve the equality between the sex. And give men some power at least to choose if they'd like to have children or not.

I wish Margaret Sanger had not been so insane as to oppose a pill for men ... I would like to see men have some control over their role in the reproductive process (Sanger witheld funds from any such research because she wanted women to have the final say). In any case, kudos to making sex free from ever more risk.
