Republican Representative Asks Why Men Have to Pay for Prenatal Care

Hierarchy-supporting men are amazing at denying they have responsibility for their actions. No where is this so obvious as in having sex and babies, including demonizing women's bodies, their periods, and refusal of care to women who want to control their reproductive health – like women get pregnant on their own. These men think "hump and dump" is their game, and whatever consequences occur are not their concern.

If men were the ones to bear children and give birth, the support story would be very different.

Now Republican Representative John Shimkus has asked why men have to pay for prenatal coverage in a health care bill.

"What about men having to purchase prenatal care," Shimkus said. "I'm just... is that not correct...And should they?"
