Again, I’m not sure you’re understanding what I’m asking for here. I’m not asking men to have an opinion about my body or when I should or shouldn’t be allowed to have an abortion. I’m asking men to stand up and say “Reproductive rights are human rights. We shouldn’t be taking away people’s human rights. I support women.”

Women don’t always take kindly to men trying to engage in debate because we live in a patriarchal society where women have been systematically oppressed by misogyny. I’m not asking men to DEBATE. I’m asking them to support, and act as allys.
