A man's "procreational autonomy" stops at the end of his dick. If you don't think you're gonna like what a woman does with your sperm, wear a condom. (We won't tell you what to do with your penis and you don't tell us what to do with our wombs.)

I'm sorry, and normally when I talk about "equality" I really do mean real equality in everything. But in this one area, there can never be absolute "equality" because men take none of the personal risks.

I guess it's interesting to get a glimpse of how the radical Right might spin Alito's anti-abortion (anti-feminist) position to get it past the 60% or 70% of the public who support R. v. W. but I'm too mad right now to be "interested."
