"We have sufficient evidence to state that a non-negligible cause of male infertility in the West is the environmental pollution caused by the pill," he said, without elaborating further.

Titled "Forty Years of Humanae Vitae From a Medical Perspective," the document examines the consequences of men and women distancing themselves "from the fundamental concept of the encyclical and choosing to favor artificial contraception."
Much of the public is unaware that the contraceptive pill also acts as an abortifacient because it affects an embryo's ability to implant successfully, the article said.
The pill's function is usually described as suppressing ovulation, but in many cases, it said, the synthetic hormones in the pill create conditions that impede implantation and, therefore, are "abortive since they expel the small human embryo."
Sooner or later, the real agenda had to emerge.
Anyway, haha. Turns out that taking the pill might actually reduce cancer risk in women -- as well as reduce the excretion of hormones in their urine. So, even if it were true -- which it's not -- that the Pill is the direct cause of the ''feminization'' in men, in the long run, taking the Pill reduces the chance of that happening.
Nice try but you can't blame Eve for turning Adam into Madam.
