Some post-Roe solutions for men
Re “Imagine if laws like abortion bans could target men,” Opinion, July 27
Law professor Darren Rosenblum gives a lot to think about in the op-ed article “If men were targets, abortion bans would be unimaginable.” Men are the reason women become pregnant, and in many cases they do not contribute financially during a woman’s pregnancy nor after the child is born.
Rosenblum’s idea of collecting “DNA from all sperm-producing individuals” and creating a national registry to match all babies born so fathers are held responsible isn’t as drastic as my suggestion.
Another way to help prevent unwanted pregnancies is for all men after puberty to have a vasectomy that can be reversed when they are ready to actually support a child. As
I said, this is drastic, but so is forcing a woman to have a child with no financial help. Donna McQuery Los Angeles
