i want to see more men talking about how they benefited from abortions, too. i am furious that it’s just my female friends who have to reveal their medical history to destigmatize something that is NORMAL AND NECESSARY.

the boys i went to high school who didn’t become teen dads? i want to hear from you. the guys in college who didn’t have to start paying child support before graduation? where the fuck are you right now!
I hear you, they should step up and make more noise! But almost 90% of the country doesn't want this (those are real poll numbers)... We never agree on ANYTHING at that rate, the bigger frustration is that this is truly not a democracy if that could happen. Slow. Moving. Coup.
Partner and I had an oh-no moment a couple of years into our relationship, when we weren't ready to raise a baby. We had an abortion at PP in SF, in a warm, supportive environment. 30+ years and 2 adult kids later, it's worked out for the best, for her, me and our lives together.

thank u, tyler🙏
A girl I dated briefly in college had an abortion. I only found out a year later. Thank god for it. I bought another girl morning-after pill once. Often avoided condoms w/ girls on the pill. Most people in North East all agree though, not like I have national followers.
The truth is that abortion benefits men more than it does women.
Imagine using the words “benefited from” to describe snuffing a life out.

ya but most of them won’t even remember to think about it. The casual dismissiveness of the female experience is second nature.
It’s not always their story to tell.
