Or Not to Be

It's a race to the non-birth.

An Israeli researcher, Dr. Oren Hasson, posits the existence of "super sperm." SS have the speed and power to fire past a woman's biological defenses and fertilize an egg multiple times, ruining its fetal capacities. At the same time, researchers around the world are pursuing the dream of male contraceptives that can be ingested, not worn.

What's a father-to-not-be to do, other than wonder what would happen if he actually did take up an increasingly complex job?
