A Women's Health... her own business.  Not the law's.  Not a man's.  Not another woman's.  Her OWN.  Where is the federal law that forces men to be circumcised?  There isn't one.  (And religious laws don't count, because in this country, abiding by them is a matter of CHOICE.  Yes, there's that word again.  CHOICE.)   Where is the law that forces a man to have a vascectomy?  There isn't one.  No other man or woman can make him do this.  It's his CHOICE.  Unless you are impregnated, unless you are the one whose body must bear the child, unless you are the one screaming in the delivery room, it is not YOUR choice to make this decision.  You do NOT get to do that.  Would you prefer women go back to dirty coat hangers and back-room, unskilled and illegal abortionists?  Do you not think that the teens of this country will do just that?  The lawmakers have already tried to limit the simplest of their choices, that of pill-form birth control.  When YOU can take that fertilized egg from the woman's uterus, put it inside you-- man or woman-- then carry and deliver it FOR her, you can make the choice.  Until then, it's not your right.
