Men play part in pregnancies, too

By excluding men at all levels of this important process is disrespectful and an assumption at least that they are not interested.

To the Editor,

Re: Sex survey makes case to subsidize birth control, March 10.

This article is both encouraging and disappointing. Whereas I fully support action to implement better family planning, I am disappointed the studies and plans only involve 50 per cent of the ‘problem’ – women. My life’s experience has taught me that men are as responsible for pregnancies as are women. By excluding men at all levels of this important process is disrespectful and an assumption at least that they are not interested. Let men participate so 100 per cent can be put into a solution that is vital to a healthier living standard for all.
