This is how to be an ally, gents:
More men are seeking to get vasectomies asfollowing the Supreme Court’s ruling on Roe v. Wade, doctors said. At one Florida clinic, a urologist told CBS News he found out about the ruling through the sheer number of phone calls coming into his clinic that day.
From his office near Tampa, Dr. Doug Stein calls patients who are under the age of 30 or do not have children to discuss whether they are 100% sure they want a vasectomy. He said he’s making those calls more often.
“We generally see about 12% in our practice, men who are child-free. And then we generally see about 12% of men who are under the age of 30. But the number of both, young and child-free, nearly doubled,” he said.
The two-doctor practice performs six vasectomies an hour most days.
There’s more to birth control than abortions, and it’s good to see men stepping up. Amiright, ladies and laddies?
You might be a dude who never wanted children, or maybe you’re already a dad to the most wonderful kid(s) in world history and you don’t want to risk the next one being an asshole like Elon Musk or another Lord Damp Nut (shudders). Why chance it?
