After the announcement on June 24th that Roe was overturned, my emails and social media sites were overrun with many posts that had a similar tone “If MEN had to deal with pregnancy” or “If MEN’s health were in jeopardy”….Abortion would be legal/free/written in the Constitution, etc.
In my humble opinion, it is a tactical mistake in the war to protect a woman’s right to choose, to make men the enemy.
Do the people who sent me these messages realize that one of the six judges that voted to overturn Roe was a woman, and that it’s clear to anyone with a brain that another judge who voted to overturn is clearly being controlled by his wife – a woman who also supported the insurrection on January 6th?
This is NOT a men versus women issue. In fact, while not as large a majority as women with 62% in support of Roe, 56% of men support a woman’s right to choose.
Let us not divide our ranks by presenting this as a men versus women issue. If you are a woman who is outraged by the decision, know that most men are on your side, and do not forget that a significant number of women, and men are not.
