I believe many men, under similar circumstances, have shared my preference for silence while encouraging women to assert their reproductive rights. A recent Pew Research Center poll shows there isn’t a significant difference between the number of women (60%) and men (57%) who think abortion should be legal. Still, most pro-choice men view the campaign for abortion rights as a “women’s issue,” even though we must, obviously, share responsibility for unwanted pregnancies. Bestsellers like “Our Bodies, Ourselves: A Book by and for Women” have understandably given priority to women’s voices. Pregnancy and childbearing create physical risks for women, not men. In doing so, they may have, inadvertently, reinforced the silence of men who respect women’s autonomy, while so many of their patriarchal counterparts routinely speak out against abortion.
