You are misunderstanding. I am not asking you to have an opinion about abortion or about what I do with my body. I am asking you (men) to have an opinion that policing people’s bodies is not okay. There’s a huge difference between you standing up and telling me what I can and can’t do, and standing up and saying “I support women’s rights, reproductive rights, and human rights.”

You’re correct, you don’t get to tell me what to do with my body. Even other people with uteri, like the woman governor who signed the Alabama bill into office, do not get to tell me what to do with my body.

I’d suggest you re-read what I wrote, much more carefully. I am suggesting that men need to be advocates for human rights. Vocally.
