Thank you, Patricia Spaniol, for your letter of Feb. 5 pointing out the hypocrisy of a man’s opposition to abortion when he himself can have sex as often as he can find a partner and (usually) walk away scot-free.

I am reminded of a quotation I heard many years ago [attributed to feminist and civil rights activist Florynce Kennedy] when Roe v. Wade was in its infancy: "If men got pregnant, abortion would be a sacrament."
