    If it's programmable by wireless that's a terrible idea. Not to wax too political, but there are groups so vehemently opposed to birth control that, given the capacity to do so, they might stoop to hacking other people's bodies.

    (And on that note: I love computer stuff, but I'm only letting it under my skin after I'm cold and dead.)

    That's a bit of a stretch to say that because it's wireless controlled someone could "hack" it. You already have tons of medical devices that are wireless, like pacemakers, and like the linked page says you have to practically be touching the person to talk with the devices (which also requires the software to do so)

    I don't like the push of the birth control drugs though- the side effects and risks (along with the mood swings they must get from some of them) just aren't worth it in my eyes. "Oh yeah, this pill is great and has a trendy marketing name and surely won't end up on a late night lawyer infomercial from resulting deaths! But least you can have truck loads of sperm in you now!"

    edit
    I also get that there's sometimes other reasons for birth control, such as regulating menstrual cycles and whatnot.
