A vasectomy at the touch of a button
Abby OReilly // 14 February 2008
I’ve had a piece published on The Guardian’s Cif page today discussing contraception, and how it can medicalise the male and female body, and make sex a clinical process. I wrote the article having read a report that scientists at the University of Adelaide are developing a new form on contraception for men, which involves the implantation of a mechanism into the sperm carrying tubes. This acts as a barrier and is controlled by a remote.
While I’m sure a lot of people may disagree with what I am saying, I’m always amazed at the hostility directed against a lot of writers on Cif.
