The Austrian scientist who helped invent the birth control pill in the 1960's said he regrets the affect it's had on the population.

85-year-old Carl Djerassi expressed remorse in an opinion piece in an Austrian newspaper, according to the Baptist Press.

He also compared the birth rate decline in European countries to an epidemic worse than obesity.

Albert Mohler, the president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, had this to say in a New York Times magazine article back in 2006.

"I cannot imagine any development in human history, after the fall, that has had a greater impact on human beings than the pill," Mohler said.

"I think there could be no question that the pill gave incredible license to everything from adultery and affairs to premarital sex and within marriage to a separation of the sex act and procreation," he explained.
