Why Abortion is a Male Issue

If men would stop using women as dumpsters for our lust, there would be no abortion.

OK, I don’t disagree. And if your aim was to throw out a sound-bite in the name of dialogue you have succeeded, because I think there is a lot to talk about in this. I hereby take the bait!

Context: as opposed to “abortion is a female issue”? Redefining abortion is something other than a problem for the woman to deal with (or a right she alone possesses) sounds like a good start.

“If men would stop using women” says to me that women are victims, is this true as a general statement?

“Dumpsters for our lust” is likely true for us guys, but it occurs to me there are motivators on the female side of this equation as well, though they may be different motivators. This might loop me back to the “victim” part, I suppose.

Your statement alone will not eliminate abortion, the human capacity for self-justification runs wide and deep

I'm working on an erudite response.

erudite or r-o-dent?
