Pro-Choice Feminist Discusses Men’s Role in Abortion

Here is one quote by pro-choice feminist Kathleen McDonnell:

“We have to acknowledge…that there is a great inconsistency between our eagerness to involve men in all other aspects of reproduction and our unwillingness to allow them a similar role in abortion. This means we must acknowledge and validate man’s role in the act of procreation. It really does take two…This stance [to deny men a choice in their partners’ abortions] poses, of course, a veritable minefield of problems…”
