One woman has brilliantly shared her on-point stance on abortion, and it’s gone viral.
Now, one woman has taken her stance to Twitter to candidly share her on-point views on abortion – specifically pointing the finger at men by arguing that “all unwanted pregnancies are caused by the irresponsible ejaculations of men”.
Gabrielle Blair, a blogger from Oakland, California, went on to further explain that men have “zero interest in stopping abortion” and are pretty much to blame for accidental pregnancies.
I’m a mother of six, and a Mormon. I have a good understanding of arguments surrounding abortion, religious and otherwise. I've been listening to men grandstand about women's reproductive rights, and I'm convinced men actually have zero interest in stopping abortion. Here's why…— Gabrielle Blair (@designmom) September 13, 2018
“Women can only get pregnant about two days each month,” she writes. “And that’s for a limited number of years.
“That makes 24 days a year where a woman might get pregnant. But men can cause pregnancy 365 days a year.
“In fact, if you’re a man who ejaculates multiple times a day, you could cause multiple pregnancies daily. In theory, a man could cause 1000+ unwanted pregnancies in just one year.”
That makes 24 days a year a women might get pregnant. But men can _cause_ pregnancy 365 days a year. In fact, if you’re a man who ejaculates multiple times a day, you could cause multiple pregnancies daily.

And she didn’t stop there. Blair then went onto explain that women have to go through the menopause but men continue to produce sperm until they die, “so it’s easy to see men are the issue here,” she writes.
Enter: birth control.
Describing it as the “greatest invention of the last century” – but a medication that also causes women to experience “brutal” side effects. Something which men have also experienced, thanks to a recent trial involving a possible contraceptive injection for men, carried out by the World Health Organisation.
However, the trial was halted as men complained of side effects which were “about a third as long as the known side effects for women’s oral contraception,” she writes.
Oh, and then there’s the issue of condoms, too. Blair openly admitted how much women love them: “women love when men use condoms. They keep us from getting STDs, they don’t lessen our pleasure during sex” - but argued that men don’t feel the same level of appreciation.”
In contrast: “Men don’t love condoms,” she writes.
“In fact, men frequently pressure women to have sex without a condom.”
So much so, she added, that some men even remove them (without the woman’s knowledge or consent) during sex.
“So, there are men willing to risk getting a woman pregnant – which means literally risking her life, her health, her social status, her relationships, and her career, so that they can experience a few minutes of slightly more pleasure,” she continues.
So… there are men willing to risk getting a woman pregnant — which means literally risking her life, her health, her social status, her relationships, and her career, so that they can experience a few minutes of _slightly_ more pleasure? Is that for real? Yes. Yes it is.— Gabrielle Blair (@designmom) September 13, 2018
Blair, who is a Mormon and a mum-of-six, also drew links between pleasure and biology – bringing to everyone’s attention that men can’t impregnate a woman without experiencing pleasure.
“But did you further know that men can get a woman pregnant without her feeling any pleasure at all?” she adds.
“In fact, it’s totally possible for a man to impregnate a woman even while causing her excruciating pain, trauma or horror.
“In contrast, a woman can have non-stop orgasms with or without a partner and never once get herself pregnant.
“A woman’s orgasm has literally nothing to do with pregnancy or fertility — her clitoris exists not for creating new babies, but simply for pleasure.”
While we’re here, let’s talk a bit more about pleasure and biology. Did you know that a man CAN'T get a woman pregnant without having an orgasm? Which means that we can conclude getting a woman pregnant is a pleasurable act for men.— Gabrielle Blair (@designmom) September 13, 2018
But what Blair really wants is for people to stop protesting outside abortion clinics and to stop shaming women for unwanted pregnancies.
“If you actually care about reducing or eliminating the number of abortions in our country, simply hold men responsible for their actions,” she writes.
“Stop trying to control women’s bodies and sexuality.”
