“Men” and “Abortion”? Who puts those two words together? Men are out of the picture. What do they have to do with it?
Abortion is a woman's issue. It's her body. It's her choice. Stay out of it.
At least, that's how the rhetoric goes. And yet, the reality is much more nuanced than that.
Men are intimately involved in reproduction. Men like Henry Morgentaler are also the reason abortion has become so widely accepted and legalized in North America. And, arguably, with more support from men, abortions would be less necessary. Does this historical involvement give men a right to voice their opinion on this issue? Or should we stick to the "no uterus, no voice" mantras that abound in the pro-choice movement?
Where do men fit into the picture when it comes to the abortion debate?
Over the course of this documentary, one young pro-life feminist will explore the legal, political, social, and moral landscape of men and abortion. Is abortion only a "women's rights" issue? Or is it more complicated than that?
