Do men now have less reproductive autonomy than women?

If it's news, but not politics, then it goes here.

But that wasn't the point of the article. The point was that while a woman has several exit points on the path to parenting (birth control, morning-after pill, various kinds of abortion, and as a last resort giving the baby up anonymously), a man has only one: birth control (when it works).


That's a false point, if that's what the point was supposed to be.

Let me put it this way - morning after pill and abortion are both available to any and all men who are pregnant, just as they are for women who are pregnant.

A woman can't give a baby up for adoption unless the man also gives up his parental rights. If the woman didn't want to raise the baby, but the man decided to exercise those rights and raise the child, then the mother would be on the hook for child support, so that is also a false point.
