why isn’t any reporting being done on the obvious: can men get pregnant? no, so why are men so involved in the abortion issue and trying to control women/girls bodies for abortion and for contraceptives. this is infuriating. i am not a man-hater it is just commonsense that men should have no role in determining what a woman should be allowed to do regarding her vagina. my god, start handing out the red cloaks & bonnets because it is coming if men don’t stick their noses out of a woman’s business. men need to stay out of health care that only involves women. how simple is that. please start covering this. i think you are all afraid to. what i have just stated is a simple commonsense statement. discuss this!
