15 Men Share Why They Support Women's Right To Choose

"If a woman can’t control her own body, she isn’t really free. That’s why I’m proud to be one of many #MenForChoice."

A woman's right to choose has been a hot-button issue in the United States for decades, and many will argue women have had to fight harder to protect their own bodies in recent months as elected officials across the country have tried to curtail their access to reproductive health care and abortion.

In Oklahoma, for example, a bill introduced earlier this year that passed the House would require a woman to get the written consent of the fetus's father before obtaining an abortion, even in cases of rape. In Ohio, Senate Bill 145 (which also passed) aims to ban and criminalize the most common method for second-trimester abortions, otherwise known as dilation and evacuation (or D&E).

Since yesterday, September 26, marked the fourth anniversary of NARAL Pro-Choice America's #MenForChoice initiative, guys around the world took to social media to explain why they support a woman's right to choose. The reasons were numerous, varied, and in some cases deeply personal, but several themes quickly emerged. 

For starters, many men explained they support a woman's right to choose because deciding to have an abortion is a choice that should be made between a woman and her doctor, not the government.

Others declared they supported a woman's right to choose because women are fully capable of making their own decisions regarding their own bodies.
