Letter to your representative

Dear Representative,
I am writing with regard to the recent assault on women’s reproductive rights. I strongly urge you to address the “Eggplant in the Womb.”  The absence of male responsibility in every heartbeat bill is draconian, misogynistic and woefully unfair. Despite the fact that there can be no procreation without male ejaculation, there is no legal mandate for a man to take "responsibility" at six-weeks gestation yet at this same point in development, a female loses rights over her own body to the same fetus. She is forced on to the pregnancy path while her male counterpart faces no consequences until after birth, if at all.

What are you or any other member of Congress doing to address the disparity of accountability in reproductive legislation? What do you think should be the father's responsibility in unwanted pregnancies? Are there any laws that give the government power over the male body?

With these new antiabortion laws, we have prison time for doctors. We have consequences for women. Where are the laws to address the impregnators?
