want to prevent women from having abortions, they should refrain from doing those things that would cause them to get pregnant in the first place. That is what needs to be argued on the floor of the house.

1. You never hear anyone wanting to ban Viagra
But you certainly hear endless discussion on abortion, and now birth control.

15. It reminds me of Bill O'Reilly's twisted views on the subject
Men need Viagra, but women don't need birth control . . . I couldn't follow it.

3. Yeah, I still think the old saying is true:
If men were the ones that could get pregnant, abortion would be available at Speedy Stops.

Or, If men were the ones that could get pregnant, abortion would be a sacrament.

4. Bingo. It's female guilt & shame anti-abortionists prize so highly.

Women must be punished for failing to control mens' overeager sex drives.

16. And their desire to control women
Women's bodies, women's reproductive choices...their anti-women language is evident when they use terms for women or girls to denigrate a boy or man.

5. Never could figure out how a man's right was a women's sin. If men had to bear children, there
would not be so many people in this world.

6. If Ken Blackwell doesn't want to get an abortion, he shouldn't get one....
... too bad his mother didn't choose that option.

14. i don't remember where I heard this
but it was said

if men could get pregnant, you'd be able to get abortions out of cigarette machines!


probably a little dated, but I don't remember who said that.
