Think about it

I don’t understand why the right-to-lifers oppose contraceptives. If every woman in the world who wanted to stop having children were to have a steady, affordable, dependable, life-time access to contraceptives, abortion would no longer be an issue. Because there would be no unwanted pregnancies, and therefore no pregnancies to abort.

On a very related subject: You men out there create conception. We women need you to be more responsible. Even for you to consider getting a vasectomy.

A vasectomy does not impair your fully functioning as a male, in any way. The cost is around $1,000. After having two children, replacing you and your significant other, the world does not need any more children. How about getting a vasectomy as a Christmas present to your SO? What joy it is to have sex without the threat and anxiety of possibly getting pregnant.

Too bad none of you men out there ever get pregnant. It blows my mind that many men want to control of lives. Whose life is it, anyway? You have no right to try to control our bodies. We don’t tell you what to do with yours — well, some of us may try, but the scale is hugely weighted on your side.

Think about it. Do you hear me? I said “Think about it,” seriously.
