That’s a typical admonishment from feminists when men seek reproductive rights.
Isn’t it strange that we never hear “If you’re not prepared to be a mother then don’t have sex!”. It would solve the abortion debate overnight.
Instead, we hear that it’s a woman’s right to choose what happens to her body – even if it means the termination of an unborn child.
So, really, why don’t we ever hear “If you’re not prepared to be a mother then don’t have sex!”?
Why is it that feminists push this responsibility so readily onto men while completely divesting women of any responsibility here? Is it that feminists think that women are incapable of taking on serious responsibilities such as these?
The fact that it’s only men who are chastised to ‘be responsible’ for a resulting pregnancy is a clear indication.
In fact, it’s incredible that, in one moment, an unborn child can be considered a miraculous and precious gift of life and in the next moment just as easily reclassified as a disposable piece of garbage in the form of an aborted foetus. How can that be?
So, does feminism truly stand for equal responsibilities? If men are expected to take responsibility for the consequences of their actions …then what about the women?
