US Gov Creates 'Birth Control' Gel For Men Combining Progestin and Testosterone

The United States government is using our hard-earned taxpayer dollars to try and come up with new ways to sterilize us.

From Bloomberg:
U.S. government scientists will test an experimental birth control method for men, which would be a major advance in contraception and bring more equality to a family planning burden borne largely by women.

The study is being conducted by the National Institutes of Health and will involve 420 couples. The experimental treatment is a gel, applied to the back and shoulders, that combines two types of hormones to halt the production of sperm while maintaining the energy and libido benefits of testosterone.

“This gel would be the first user-controlled method of contraception for men since the introduction of the condom,” said Diana Blithe, chief of the contraceptive development program at the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. “We hope it will be an acceptable form of contraception that couples will want to use.”

The gel is a mix of progestin and testosterone, and researchers will examine how successful the gel is at preventing pregnancies. People who rely on condoms have a 12 percent to 13 percent failure rate, while relying on hormone-based birth control pills fails about 7 percent of the time.

“There are some men who may like to control their own fertility, who may or may not be in a monogamous relationship,” said Blithe, who is an investigator for the trial, in a telephone interview. “This would be an option for them.”
This is a crime against humanity.

Here's from information on progestin from Wikipedia:

Why is the government spending our tax dollars on this?
The drug is formulated as a gel since testosterone is cleared too quickly from the body when it’s taken as a pill. The progestin in the gel, called Nestorone, blocks the natural production of testosterone in the testes, where sperm is made. The testosterone replaces the hormone in the blood.

“You are cutting it off at the source, but replacing it everywhere else at a levels that keeps everything else functioning normally,” Blithe said, pointing out that testosterone levels in the testes are 50 times higher than the amount normally found in the blood.

The researchers will track men for four to 12 weeks to ensure their sperm production has fallen significantly enough to prevent conception, with women using an alternative form of birth control just in case. After that, couples will rely on the gel alone. If the results are positive, another larger trial will be needed before the product could get approval.
Sperm counts among Western males have allegedly already fallen 50% in the last 40 years.

It appears our rulers want to finish the job.
