Ultimately, the thing that could really enable mass adoption of this male-centric birth control option is the same thing that motivates women to religiously, even fanatically, commit to a daily pill-popping regimen: sheer, unadulterated fear.
The anti-abortion movement has been relentless in its determination to obstruct, block, prevent or make difficult any woman's attempt to obtain an abortion. But it has been strangely inactive in trying to stop men from getting vasectomies.
Putting more contraceptive options on the table, also for men, is a social good. But as I mentally review the testimonies of the hundreds of women I have spoken to about their lack of autonomy in contraceptive use, I find women's right to birth control neither inevitable nor sad.
