Several states are passing legislation to tightly control women’s reproductive health and choices. Our own legislature has periodic rumblings along these lines.

How arrogant.

It is absurd that white male politicians try to control and legislate women’s reproductive health, contraception, and family planning. Women face numerous and complex individual situations every day. They should be able to manage their own bodies with the advice of those they respect. They should be able to do so without Big Brother looking over their shoulders.

No one has ever gotten pregnant without the participation of a man; therefore, men should share in the responsibilities. If these efforts to curtail a woman’s choice continue, we should demand legislation putting sideboards on men’s reproductive health and activities. It would only be fair.
