The idea that men are ineligible to speak out on abortion has at least six flaws, each of which should be understood and articulated by men who desire to speak on the issue. Those argumentative flaws follow in no particular order of importance:...
The Constitution limits the power of the federal government and specifically describes those powers. Nothing in the Constitution says that the government should "provide" for "poor people." Therefore, providing welfare through the redistribution of wealth is not one of those powers. Nothing of your second paragraph is true, aside from the fact that we love babies (fetus is latin for baby) but I guess the pro-death crowd is so much better since they kill indiscriminately?
Recently, a student asked me whether I had a right to speak out on abortion given that I am a man and could never experience pregnancy. I countered by asking him whether arguments have testicles. The question drew laughter from other students who were listening to the exchange. But my point was serious and worth addressing at length.
