“Men should worry about the future of Roe v. Wade, too,” a recent Washington Post headline tells us.
“For decades, men have benefited from the availability of safe and legal abortion. It’s time for men to start taking threats to reproductive freedom personally,” law professor Nancy Leong writes.
Her column is painfully tone-deaf. First, she ignores an important fact: Yes, abortion “benefits” men in a way — precisely because it absolves them of their responsibility to women and their own children. That doesn’t empower women or anyone. Second, the way she extols abortion for allowing men to live “much better” lives is grossly anti-fatherhood and anti-child.
