Bro-choice gets destroyed in epic fashion

When one argument fails to convince legions of Americans that allowing late-term abortions to be performed on fetuses capable of living outside the womb, another more ridiculous one manages to take it’s place. So where “Hail Satan” could not get the point across, you have Ben Sherman warning the male residents of Texas that they will not get laid if women can’t get a late-term abortion at six months of pregnancy.
That’s right, gentlemen. Abortion is the only thing standing between you and your next piece of ass.
(Ben Sherman) “Your sex life is at stake. Can you think of anything that kills the vibe faster than a woman fearing a back-alley abortion? Making abortion essentially inaccessible in Texas will add an anxiety to sex that will drastically undercut its joys. And don’t be surprised if casual sex outside of relationships becomes far more difficult to come by.
You want to decide when and if to have kids. This bill will force thousands of Texas men into unplanned fatherhood by making it impossible for women to access an abortion in the event of an unplanned pregnancy. Even if you want to have kids, you probably don’t want an accident to make you a father before you’re psychologically ready and able to care for a child. If you don’t want kids, you don’t want the narrow, personal views of politicians in the state government to force you to have them.”
Before I get into the meat of this, let me just point out that the article is entitled “Bro-Choice,” which, dear God. This man can’t possibly get laid on a regular basis to begin with, except perhaps at pro-choice rallies when he shows up wearing a “This is What a Feminist Looks Like” tee shirt, and even then I’m sure he cries after its over and makes her breakfast at 3am, which he serves alongside a copy of a Betty Friedan tome, because he can’t handle the guilt associated with betraying his male instincts.
But back to the point. Nothing says “I love you” like suggesting that your partner have a late-term abortion, especially if you don’t realize within five months that she’s pregnant. Which, being a dude, isn’t entirely improbable, just particularly hard to explain. Although, I have to say, I’m sorry if the concept of pregnancy hampers Ben’s sex life. He could always do the gentlemanly thing and carry a few more condoms, but this is Bro-Choice, so let’s assume he’s never had to use them. Otherwise, we’ll have to assume he’s has no concept of basic biology. So, we’ll just saddle him with being a virgin and not with failing 8th grade science, and leave him with this piece of advice: if having a family terrifies you, keep it in your pants, wrap it up, or figure out how to broach the subject to your partner before she hits that all-important sixth month.
The entire thing is worth reading, here.
