Letters to the Editor: A nation of vasectomized men — did you envision this, antiabortion zealots? As an unvacuated man, I was not surprised. I had heard women would be the first to be denied access to birth control. Even the most radical feminists have to admit that they are pro-choice and don’t believe a woman has the right to kill their newborn, or even to self-seriously deny birth control.
