Is this real life?

Tech tycoon and leader of the free world, Bill Gates, has officially backed a revolutionary way to birth control. The Microsoft creator has given millions to fund a new type of birth control that would be surgically implanted into a woman’s body and can be activated and deactivated by simply flipping a switch.

According to reports on Elite Daily and BBC news, The Bill and Melinda Gates foundation gave $4.6 million to MicroCHIPS, the startup who is responsible for developing the unnamed product.

Should this work out in everyone’s favor, the device could be made available as early as 2018.
