Abortion and Men

Warning: This post has some strong sexual content!

Time and again I hear people in favor abortion remove the man from the equation along with the unborn child. You’d think women impregnate themselves to listen to them.

Radical feminists want men and women to be equal but that equality apparently only goes one way. When men ‘get in the way’ of what women want, they must be removed. If women want to join a men’s club, the men better let them in. If men want to join a women’s club, the men better step off.

If men speak up against abortion, an attempt will be made to silence them by claiming pregnancy is solely the woman’s “problem”. The woman will handle it as she sees fit and the guy can just open his wallet and remain silent.

True, women carry and birth the child. Often, they end up with sole custody of the child-if that’s the situation. However, male sperm is still needed for a pregnancy.
Is that all a man is; a sperm donor? Is ejaculation what makes a man a man?
We have emasculated our men and reduced their role in the family to a paycheck and a fertilizer provider.

Of course, abortion effects men. It’s ludicrious to claim otherwise. All the men who will not be fathers; not to mention all the babies who will not be fathered. Fathered in the fullest sense of the word.

Abortion has three victims.

I know a young man who was accomplice to abortion. This was over 5 years ago and it has pretty much destroyed true peace of mind for him. Actually I would say peace of soul might be more appropriate.

Well said and great perspective. Thanks for the talking point. The disconnect the pro-choice crowd has boggles my mind.

Prayers to St. Joseph, for all prospective fathers to influence the choice of life for their children, should be included by everyone who prays to end abortion.

Thank you for this post. I have long been frustrated with the disparity (and I am a woman). My brother's girlfriend had an abortion against his wishes. It pains him to see my son as they would have been the same age. He was not at a point where he was responsible then, which isn't to say he would have been had the baby lived, but who's to say that wouldn't have finally been the push he needed to become the man he was meant to be? God knows. Now we will never know and he still lives with my parents at the age of 30. Every parent will tell you that children very truly help sanctify you. Think of all the lost opportunities in that part of God's plan alone. People have no idea.

Direct, procured abortion is always a horrible tragedy.
The woman and the man are scarred for life.
How can this be any other way?
The child, the one who is so vulnerable and needing their love, no matter how he/she was conceived, is destroyed.
May our Lord Jesus Christ give every victim of abortion, both mother, father and child, His Eternal Mercy and grace. Amen.

To the point and NOT sugar coated.

I agree with everything you wrote here. Men are factored out - in many cases - from the picture and are reduced, as you say, "to a paycheck and a fertilizer provider."

On the other hand, some men need to get off their lazy arse and be a source of comfort and support to their partner when an unplanned pregnancy occurs. Not just by merely saying comforting words, but also by executing their responsibilities as fathers (emotional support; logistical support; financial support) and becoming involved in the lives of the children they helped to make.

Some males have a sophomoric understanding of what it’s like to be a man.

Reality check time:

Far more harm has been done to men through the divorces they suffer at the hands of women(70-80% female intitiated) and then, at least the Catholics, face the obliteration of their marriage by the Church, than they suffer with abortion, as terrible as abortion is.

So men really are JUST sperm donors; as well as banks to be tapped by the courts for their never been, thanks to Catholic annulments, wives.

Thank God, I am no longer a Catholic. Still pro-life but now I know what the Catholic Church is. It AIN'T what it used to be, that is for sure.
