Pope Francis Warns Catholics To Stop Breeding Like Rabbits

Posted in: , , ,

Pope Francis appears to be inadvertently advocating for birth control for Roman Catholics, who often say they do not believe in family planning. The pope argues that not using artificial contraception methods is no excuse to have uncountable number of children. He insists that Catholics may have a moral responsibility to limit the number of their children.

The infallible leader of the Roman Catholic church made this statement, according to The National Catholic Reporter, while traveling from the Philippines to Rome with reporters. Pope Francis shared the story of a woman he recently met who had given birth to seven children via Cesareans section and was expecting another child.

Would You Use a Contraceptive Computer Chip That Works For 16 Years?

Posted in: , , , ,

A computer chip contraceptive that can be adjusted using remote control has been developed as an option for women's birth control. When implanted under a woman's skin, the chip will continue to release a small dose of the hormone, levonorgestrel, into her bloodstream daily for 16 years.

This will happen every day, but can be stopped at any time by using the wireless remote control.

Developed by a company in the US, the project has been backed by Bill Gates, and will be submitted for pre-clinical testing in the US next year - and possibly go on sale by 2018.

The device is small enough for size not to be a deterrent, and is "competitively priced" the creators said.

Would you use this? Check out the details and some people's reactions below..
