I feel compelled to share my reflection with you below. I've never written an email like this but no other expression seems enough. I've always known these statistics but somehow they've collided in my mind into a clear picture. That picture being: we have a lot of work to do.
I’ve heard from many of you, your solution: don’t have sex. Sounds simple doesn’t it? But it leaves me with more questions. What about men? Why aren’t we telling you not to have sex? Why aren’t we telling you that you shouldn’t’ have access to condoms? Why aren’t we calling you a slut when you have premarital sex or a one night stand? Why do you bear no responsibility for any of this? If you feel strongly that women should not have access to birth control or family planning methods then are you willing to only have sex when you are trying to conceive a child? If you conceive a child will you care for the child financially and emotionally? Not all men abuse women. Not all men seek to oppress women. But no man will feelthe responsibility of carrying a child and bringing it into the world.
