Forty-five years after Roe v. Wade created a “right” to abortion in America, the Sexual Revolution continues to claim victims under the guise of freedom and autonomy. Scientists are getting closer to releasing a hormonal birth control pill designed specifically for men, providing further proof that the culture of death does not discriminate based on race, age, or sex.
Last week, a team of researchers presented the chemical contraceptive known as dimethandrolone undecanoate, or DMAU, at the Endocrine Society’s annual conference in Chicago, The Guardian reported. DMAU works by suppressing the healthy male hormones responsible for sperm production.
And while previously tested male pills have been shown to cause damage to the liver and kidneys, the researchers praised DMAU for having comparatively “mild” adverse effects, such as lower HDL (good cholesterol) and weight gain. It seems fitting that a pill designed to suppress male hormones would actually make men softer.
Aside from being quite literally emasculating, this new pill is further confirmation that birth control isn’t and never was a “women’s issue,” but rather something that affects all human life. Pope Paul VI affirmed this point 50 years ago in his prophetic encyclical, Humanae Vitae:
If they further reflect, they must also recognize that an act of mutual love which impairs the capacity to transmit life which God the Creator, through specific laws, has built into it, frustrates His design which constitutes the norm of marriage, and contradicts the will of the Author of life. Hence to use this divine gift while depriving it, even if only partially, of its meaning and purpose, is equally repugnant to the nature of man and of woman, and is consequently in opposition to the plan of God and His holy will. (Emphasis added.)
Just as man does not have unlimited dominion over his body in general, so also, and with more particular reason, he has no such dominion over his specifically sexual faculties, for these are concerned by their very nature with the generation of life, of which God is the source.
Even as fertility rates are falling nearly everywhere, social progressives continue to tout the decades-old, tried-and-failed teachings of the Sexual Revolution. We are destroying ourselves by willingly making choices counter to the survival of the human race. Science is supposed to be grounded in reason—but this is the definition of insanity.
Feminists have long tried to exclude men from conversations surrounding contraception and birth control, but the dawn of the male pill presents an inconvenient paradox. By eliminating the procreative element of sex, we have leveled the playing field and surrendered the unique role either sex plays in bringing forth new life.
The good news is, now that men are a part of the birth control conversation, they can play an even greater part in restoring our broken culture. True men who embrace their sexual faculties with holy reverence must stand up to proponents of chemical castration and shout, “My body, my choice!”
Our sexual crisis is a human crisis, and it’s up to women and men to reject efforts that run counter to God’s plan for sexuality.
