UWaterloo- Sept. 25th 2018 #2
I was doing the Bloody Sexism Project in Waterloo and was talking to a young man who said he couldn't have an opinion on abortion, not even sex selective abortion. It was a woman's issue and he had no right to an opinion on it. I asked him if I as a white woman could have an opinion on slavery to which he replied, "Of course, it is wrong!" So I asked him if that meant if something was wrong it was okay to be against it even if you aren't directly affected by it. He said yes. So I asked him "Doesn't that mean that if abortion is a human rights abuse you are allowed to be against it even as a man?" And he stood for a moment and thought and said "Oh my goodness abortion is a human rights abuse. This is never okay!
