Does birth control help the environment?

    Yes, every person living consumes natural resources. Contraceptive devices and birth control limit the amount of people being born to consume the Earth’s finite resources.

    Though, there is mounting evidence that birth control gets into the water supply and then into everyone who drinks the water. That is a big environmental negative, but a small price to pay for a less populous planet.

    In a sense birth control can help the environment via population control as containing population growth can lower our overall carbon footprint. However, we must also take note of the harmful effects of artificial forms of birth control. The synthetic estrogen used by women for birth control often ends up poisoning our waters which causes wide ranging health effects on marine life. The estrogen is excreted through urine and makes its way into bodies of water through sewage systems which is then ingested by fish like trout and salmon.
