Avoiding abortion

I realize this is a sensitive subject but feel the need to add my two cents. It seems that Church of Planned Parenthood feels the need to “pray” and disrupt healthcare for women. A noble cause in some people’s hearts.

Could we perhaps look at how men could start helping? Not by yelling at women getting birth control. How about you gents get vasectomies? Or the church folk stand outside gyms and hand out condoms? Hand out condoms everywhere. Or guys, keep it in your pants.

Why is it that women are targeted, held responsible and harassed for something that takes a man and a women to create? How about you guys help us out to avoid abortions in the first place?

I’m pretty sure no woman wants to pursue abortion. How many do you suppose pursue this because they know the father won’t be there for the child? Guys, step up or quiet down.
