American R&B singer and songwriter, Eric Benèt Jordan professionally known as Eric Benèt has stated that birth control pills should be given to men instead of women.
According to him in a post on his Twitter page, men are more susceptible when it comes to child birth than women because a woman can only get pregnant once a year.
He explained that a man can impregnate four women a day per year which is equivalent to 1460 pregnancies.
He blamed scientist for creating birth control for the wrong gender.
Most young ladies who are sexually active take birth control pills to avoid unwanted pregnancies. Some health professionals have even encouraged the use of it despite some serious side effects.
The oral contraceptive pill, commonly known as “the pill,” is a hormone-based method of preventing pregnancy. It can also help resolve irregular menstruation, painful or heavy periods, endometriosis, acne, and premenstrual syndrome (PMS).
Used correctly, the pill is highly effective, but because people make mistakes, 6 to 12 pregnancies in every 100 are thought to occur each year while using it. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) put the failure rate for both types of pill at 9 percent.
One thing most young people ignore is that the birth pill doesn’t prevent the contraction of STDs and other sexually transmitted diseases.
Some women have lost their wombs while others have have had disruption in their menstrual cycles.
With all these risk factors, Eric believes that the birth control pills should be revised and be made for men to take.
