So now people want mandatory vasectomy for men. This disgusts me for several reasons
- I knows several men who fight for pro choice and this is what they get.
- they want "control of their own body". Yeah more like women have control of a man's body as well
- it will lead to future problems. If we do this then there will be people in a few years time complaining about it like the abortion debate now.
- it's not as reversible as it seems. Apparently it gets And harder to reverse as time goes on. So if your someone who decides not to have kids until 40 aka later in life (no shame on that have kids whenever you can safely have them) but if you did that theres less of a chance
- abortions still won't be fully unwanted. There will still be the situation here and there where someone gets excited to start a family, husband dies, Loses everything and can't support baby (hopefully none of that ever happens to anyone reading this)
Am I the only one who feels this way. Share this if you agree with me to give EVERYONE control over their own bodies

Well if there ever was an argument to be made for mandatory sterilisation this thread is it.

If you live in Alabama, where (IIRC) it was only suggested to highlight the ridiculousless of criminalising abortions, you're crazy.

If you live in the UK, and think this would ever happen to you or your family, you're batshit.


Motheroffeminists Wed 15-May-19 21:52:37

Wtf? Do you live near a glue factory and due to the warm weather have had all your windows open and therefore had a higher dose of fumes than is advisable? That would explain the batshittery of both you and your town.

Stop being daft OP it's satire showing the ridiculousness of not allowing people bodily autonomy.
It's saying the forcing women to give birth against their will to stop abortions is as ridiculous as forcing men to have vasectomies to stop abortions.

Maybe use this as a time to educate your DS on critical thinking and not taking everything you see in the media at face value.

Op i appreciate your response however it's really not giving enough info. You both do sound a bit hysterical to the rest of us as it is not something we have heard or experienced.

Totally confused here.

Men can't get vasectomies when they ask for it in some health trusts as they prefer women to keep taking contraception instead!

Well if there ever was an argument to be made for mandatory sterilisation this thread is it.


Celebelly Wed 15-May-19 21:58:46

😂😂😂 This has proper tickled me. This can't be real.

tinytemper66 Wed 15-May-19 21:59:25

I must add I wrote the first post before realising your son is 15!

thegreatcrestednewt Wed 15-May-19 22:00:16

Wtaf have I just read? Oh, op.

Have him declare as trans and then he'll magically have a vagina not a penis and be safe from the awful ,shady corner individuals.

Nottheduchess Wed 15-May-19 22:03:39

What a bonkers thread, I’m just marking my spot for the deletion message.

cdtaylornats Wed 15-May-19 22:03:59

It was proposed by an American actress - not a politician.

I’m hoping you don’t know what the word literally means. If you actually mean he’s literally having forced vasectomies shoved down his throat whenever he leaves the house then I’d probably move house.

LaurieFairyCake Wed 15-May-19 22:06:43

Funniest thread for a while grin

NunoGoncalves Wed 15-May-19 22:06:59

It's blowing up your life literally your life?

What does that even mean?

Evening, everyone. We're not entirely sure what's going on here but since the OP doesn't seem to be coming back, we're going to delete the thread now.

HappyRoots Wed 15-May-19 22:08:18

Probably a good idea. OP is in the UK and I'm pretty sure genuinely believes what she's written unfortunately.

AlaskanOilBaron Wed 15-May-19 22:08:19

Having heard nothing of the sort, I googled 'forced vasectomies' and it turned up this:

"View" host Joy Behar suggested on Wednesday that Alabama lawmakers should be forced to undergo vasectomies after voting for what's being described as the most restrictive abortion ban in the nation.

So it's really nothing more than this.

Maybe you should try to talk some reason to your son.
