NUTS! Men Getting Vasectomies to Protest Texas Abortion Law:
Calling it an “act of love,” some men are getting vasectomies in protest of Texas’ restrictive new abortion law, upheld earlier this month by the U.S. Supreme Court.
“Koushik Shaw,” reports the Washington Post, “a doctor at the Austin Urology Institute in Texas, said his practice saw about a 15 percent increase in scheduled vasectomies after the Sept. 1 Texas abortion ban went into effect.”
At the very least, it’s nice to hear a postmodern doctor admit that there are genuine biological differences between men and women.
Dr. Shaw also told the Post that this is the first time that “patients are citing a state law as their motivating factor.”
That’s right: Men are getting the ol’ snip-snip for political reasons, not for reasons of health or family planning. --->READ MORE HERE
Abortion rights activists want men to get involved in the debate by getting vasectomies:
With the Supreme Court expected to issue a landmark ruling next year that will determine the fate of abortion in America, some pro-choice activists are advocating vasectomies as a way for men to support abortion rights.
These activists say that men should be more involved in family planning and that going to the doctor to have the tubes that carry sperm to their semen snipped and sealed is an act of reproductive freedom that can relieve pressure on women to kill unwanted children before they're born.
Doctors who perform the male sterilization procedure told the Washington Post they've seen an increase in male patients seeking vasectomies in response to pro-life laws passed by Republican-majority legislatures in several states. In Texas, a fetal heartbeat law seeks to ban abortions after six weeks of pregnancy but has been blocked in court. A ban on abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy in Mississippi is at the center of Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, the Supreme Court case challenging Roe v. Wade's precedent.
Koushik Shaw, a urologist at the Austin Urology Institute in Texas, said his practice saw about a 15% increase in scheduled vasectomies after Dec. 1, when oral arguments for Dobbs took place. --->READ MORE HERE
