QUOTE OF THE DAY: Liberal Men Are Getting Vasectomies to Protest Abortion Restrictions

Andy Gress was among a number of feminist husbands who told the Washington Post they underwent surgical sterilization to demonstrate their commitment to “reproductive rights.”


“The procedure was a total relief, almost like the COVID shot — like I’m safe now,” Gress, who works in higher education, told the Post for a feature story published Sunday. “I wanted to man up.”

The men quoted in the article —‏  headlined “Men across America are getting vasectomies ‘as an act of love’” — said they got vasectomies in response to a Texas law that recently banned most abortions in the state.

  • Meanwhile, Florida urologist Doug Stein, a pro-vasectomy activist, has founded “World Vasectomy Day” and “Responsible Men’s Clubs” to encourage men to discuss their self-inflicted sterility.
  • “The fact [men] are not out there fighting every bit as hard [for reproductive rights] as women is shameful,” said documentary filmmaker Jonathan Stack, Stein’s activist partner.


The U.S. birthrate hit an all-time low in 2021, falling below replacement rate and sparking concerns about underpopulation.
