Researchers have announced a new breakthrough in male contraceptives. The first male birth control that is injected into the penis will be available in 7 months.
According to the Hindustan Times, a government research agency has successfully completed a clinical trial for an injectable male contraceptive. The drug is awaiting final government approval.
Dr. R.S. Sharma, who worked on the project, said 303 volunteers participated in 3 clinical trials with a 97.3% success rate.

The drug is injected directly into the two vas deferens ducts that carry sperm from the testicles. A local anesthetic is injected first to numb the pain. The injectable drug works by blocking sperm from leaving the testicles. The birth control effect lasts for 13 years and is not reversible.
Dr. Sharma and other researchers worked on the medication since 1984 and "the final product is ready after exhaustive trials."
Critics argue that the drug will be abused by governments eager to control certain populations.
Dr. Sharma cautioned that the drug can only prevent pregnancy, not protect against sexually transmitted diseases. Men should still practice safe sex by wearing condoms.

I would support President Obama for reelection if he would impose mandatory birth control on hoodrats like this woman who gave her infant weed to smoke. In the cell phone video, which first appeared on Worldstar Hip Hop, the woman offers the child a hit off of her marijuana cigarette. The little boy appears to be glassy eyed and behaving as if he is under the influence from the addictive substance. The woman is apparently a resident of South Carolina. If you know who she is, please contact police or your local child welfare services.
Watch the shocking video after the break.
