Stephen Colbert ridicules KU Medical Center plan for male birth control pill
In the raging national shit storm over contraception, one major medical story has been lost in the shuffle. KU Medical Center has had a breakthrough in its noble effort to create a male birth-control pill, which would prevent men from producing mature sperm cells. While most media outlets have trained their focus on the congressional catfight over employer-provided contraception, the always-sharp Stephen Colbert brought KU’s brilliant biological alchemy to the public’s attention during his “Tip of the Hat/Wag of the finger” segment Wednesday. As you can see, he’s not a fan. After all, every sperm is special.
