I’ve been thinking about this whole abortion thing that lots of men in US politics seem to be tying themselves in knots about in their haste to legislate women’s rights and women’s bodies away. It came to me the other day that perhaps we are looking at this issue from the wrong direction. An abortion isn’t something that anyone enters into lightly, but fewer of them would probably be a good thing although there will always be a need for safe, legal abortions. So I have come up with a new solution.
At puberty, when males become capable of impregnating a woman, have them give several samples of semen to be frozen then perform a vasectomy. This way everyone can have as much sex as they like and have children, if they choose to, when they are ready via IVF. This allows for men to become parents only when ready, and if any genetic conditions exist these can be screened for if necessary pre IVF.
So we decrease the possibility of unwanted pregnancy, everyone can have their fun, there is no need for draconian legislation that takes away women’s rights and everyone is happy. Right?
SotBO: no I’m not seriously suggesting this.
