There are many worrisome aspects of wireless “pregnancy-Gates,” but they all come back to one fundamental question: “Who is in control of the woman’s ability to conceive?” Rights activists insist that women have “the right to choose,” but if a wirelessly activated chip, provided and maintained by Big Pharma controls a woman’s fertility how is that empowering?
What if there is a malfunction? Do we want to rely on a birth control chip remaining error free and harmless? And that assumes there is never any malicious action involving criminals hacking wireless signals or even, heaven forbid, some overt misconduct by the organization that provides and maintains the chip. Eugenics, anyone?
OK, that is starting to be just terrifying BUT THAT’S NOT EVEN THE WORST!
