    Contraceptive pill is polluting environment: Vatican newspaper


    The contraceptive pill is polluting the environment and is in part responsible for male infertility, a report in the Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano said Saturday.
    Reminds me of the complaints about Teflon. I wonder if there is any truth to the matter or whether its just a means to an end for pushing forward the Vatican's morals.

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.

    They may have a point. You figure with the amount of females that use the pill it could constitute some kind of risk for males.

    In the end I think they need a heck of a lot more scientific research and legitimate ideas put forward other than just the word of the Vatican.

    I've heard that this is actually quite true. Not 100% necessarily an increase in male infertility, but the ethinylestradiol that's being released into the environment is seriously ****ing up fish populations and is likely having some effect on humans. The Vatican might be bringing it up for its own reasons, but it's a legitimate concern.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
