Abortion advocates repeatedly make the claim that men can’t talk about abortion. During my many pro-life outreaches on college campuses, men have been told to mind their own business and to shut up because they can’t get pregnant. This charge is primarily made to pro-life men. Men have also confided in me they don’t believe [...]
