Bill Gates announces another breakthrough in population control – A remote-controlled contraceptive microchip
Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is in the limelight once again. Yes, according to the sources, Bill Gates is yet again into the population control methodology. But this time, it is neither the flying mosquito vaccine nor the oral bait vaccine. It is something bigger with a huge concern about the human race.
Beyond the imagination of any normal human being, he came up with the idea of a birth control microchip. Perhaps, Bill Gates knows the real consequences of the growing population of the world, with 7 billion human beings sharing a single planet! This may be the only reason why he is trying so hard to put a restriction on the rising population.
If birth control is his only concern, then it would act as a relief for the women around the world by saving them from rushing to the clinics now and then. Moreover, there will be no need of contraceptive pills, precautions, and all the stuff that is usually opted in order to control birth. Compiling all the information about this contraceptive microchip, we have tried to put the focus on its benefits as well as its side effects.
1 Contraceptive Microchip
This contraceptive microchip is a result of Gates Foundations’ partnership with MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology). Yes, developing the birth control chip was the sole idea of the duo – Bill Gates and Professor Robert Langer. This birth control device is a 20mm x 20mm x 7mm microchip that can be implanted in the upper arms, abdomen, or buttocks.
The implantation can be completed within just 30 minutes. If we talk in simple words, then this contraceptive microchip is a simple reservoir of hormones. On the other hand, its working is really complex and questions are being raised on its mechanism. The hormone that is being used in this chip is the same hormone used in any ordinary contraceptive drug.
2 Mechanism of the Chip
The hormone levonorgestrel will be stored on a 1.5cm microchip that will be incorporated in the device. This device can work for approximately two decades, with a per day flow of 30 micrograms. The blocks of hormones are covered with an ultra-thin seal that melts when brought in contact with an electric charge.
The most helpful fact about this contraceptive microchip is that it can be controlled simply with a remote. Yes, you heard it right; a remote will now control the functioning of your body. One can even alter the dosage with this remote control. Women must be already beaming!
3 How It All Started
If we peer into the past, then there is nothing surprising with all these innovations or discoveries. It is just a further step of Bill Gates’ population control agenda, on which he has been working for years.
Actually, there are no particular details of when this idea sprouted in his mind. But, according to the sources, Bill Gates during his visit to Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) two years ago, talked to Dr. Robert Langer about it. Both the geniuses of the era then came with a possible way to turn the birth control on and off. Since then, the Bill Gates Foundation has got connected to MicroCHIPS.
4 The Partnership
After their conversation at MIT, the Bill Gates Foundation started funding MicroCHIPS. MicroCHIPS is a Massachusetts firm that has the license to bring in use the controlled-release microchip technology. Post their partnership, Dr. Robert Langer started working on this project.
It is also said that this technology was originally meant to release osteoporosis medicament in older women. But after Dr. Langer’s conversation with Bill Gates, the concern changed and it came out as a birth control measure or as we call it now – the contraceptive microchip.
Starting this year, only the safety tests will be carried out but the Massachusetts is looking forward to release this technology early in 2018.
5 A Look into The Past
Before deciding on this new technology, we should also look into some of the facts related to the researches that Bill Gates once funded. .
The flying mosquito vaccine was one of the projects that he funded earlier. This project was a term of criticism and was wholly dependent on probability. The dosages were not defined, neither was it accepted by the public. It was counted among the ‘complete waste of time and money’ projects.
Another project that gained a lot of criticism was the oral bait vaccine. The outcome of this project was also almost the same as the flying mosquito vaccine.
6 Security, Safety, and Privacy
The main concern of the critics is the safety and security of women. For proper security, it needs to be encrypted so that no one can reprogram the implant. The privacy concern has also drawn a lot of criticism from around the world. The chip may squeeze various data, including the knowledge of exact timings of intercourse. That clearly means no privacy at all.
Whatever be the form of contraceptive drugs, they are always considered to pose serious health risks. The hormone used in the microchip drops a strong anti-implantation effect (it acts by preventing the fertilized egg from embedding into the uterus) that is a prime concern of safety. Moreover, you have to rely on a remote-controlled computer chip 24/7. That depicts you are entirely on the mercy of a machine. Yes, it is not foolproof as of now.
All the rumors, information, appreciation, and criticism will have to wait for a while until this astounding technology is properly tested for its pros and cons. Hitting the market in early 2018, this technology may surprise you beyond imagination. Let us wait for this remote-controlled contraceptive microchip to be launched effectively; the rest will rely on public acceptance.
