Being a "real man" has always been about making the tough choices that don't make you popular but need to be made. A friend once said he had doubts about whether a woman could be President "not because of intelligence, but because she wouldn't have the fortitude to make the tough decisions."
Alright so manhood is defined by the fortitude to make the tough decisions. But wouldn't tough decisions include the decision about whether or not to have an abortion?
An unintended pregnancy is a woman's version of Live Free or Die Hard. There are no good options, only bad, shitty, and suicidal. And no one trusts your judgment, not even your "friends". You have either by-the-book police commissioners or by-the-bible political, religious, or family commisioners telling you to follow the "rules" (commandments, "values", what we raised you to believe, etc.). The rules are garbage, and you know it because your facing death and their not. The only usable rule is: dodge enough bullets to get you home in relatively one piece, because you really won't anyway.
No man facing the worst would ever let a commissioner, priest, spouse, parent, or pro-life college professor lecture him on playing by their rules. Fuk 'em. That's why we live free.
And a pro-choice attitude ensures that.
