Women, let’s regulate men’s reproductive rights

Article here. Excerpt:

'First, a handful of states — Georgia, Ohio, Mississippi, Kentucky and Alabama — enacted laws severely restricting access to abortion even in the case of rape (rape!) and incest (incest!), and as early as six weeks into a pregnancy, when most women don’t even know they’re pregnant.

In sponsoring Ohio’s bill, state Rep. John Becker claimed that if a woman has an ectopic pregnancy — when an embryo implants somewhere other than the uterus, often the fallopian tube — a doctor can just shove the errant embryo back into her uterus and — voila — baby!

Oh, honey, it just doesn’t work that way.

We know what they’re trying to do, of course. They want these laws to make it to the Supreme Court in an attempt to erode, if not fully overturn, Roe v. Wade. But the ignorance of these lawmakers, overwhelmingly people without a uterus and a scant, if that, understanding of them or other lady parts, is problematic.
Actor Evan Rachel Wood suggests vasectomies should be mandatory. Why not? It’s an easy, quick and safe procedure that’s done in a doctor’s office and is reversible.

But why stop there?

We could require men to wear condoms every time they have non-pregnancy sex — even if his partner uses her own birth control — or be subject to a fine and/or prison.

We could require men to take out a $1 million potential-pregnancy insurance plan (more depending on genetics, etc.) to cover all pregnancy- and birth-related costs as well as the cost of raising a child.'

Men's repro rights are non-existent. Men have no equivalent abortion rights. Aside from condoms there is no birth control option anywhere near the options women have.

What these suggestions are are not controlling men's repro rights. They're full-on assaults on male sexuality. We're already in a place where men have no repro rights.
