Cape Cod Clinic Offers Men a Free Pizza with Vasectomy
Urology Associates of Cape Cod made local news with their ploy to get men in for surgery; watch the four-minute segment, wherein a reporter basically emphasizes the clinic’s sales pitch, below. And Virginia Urology is also getting attention for their new site, vasectomymaddness.com, where they pitch a similar argument for getting your vas deferens severed in time for college basketball’s biggest weekend:
Spend 3 days on the couch watching hoops with your wife’s approval! … Watch the Tournament While You Recover: Enjoy full days of uninterrupted basketball action from your couch.
Finally someone takes the time to highlight the plight of attention-starved male contraception! For too long women, and the shuttering of critical family planning and reproductive health services have hogged the limelight and national discourse.
Why should Republicans’ never-ending effort to strip Planned Parenthood of federal funding, the bombing of abortion providers’ clinics, jailing of pro-choice doctors for life, and employers lobbying (successfully!) for the right to fire female employees for using birth control be the only stories told on the contraception beat?
It’s about time that we spent some time talking about how these issues affect men! Finally, a story detailing the ways reproductive rights and health are affecting men.
Free pizza, y’all.
Gentlemen, the war on women in our country is very, very real. Not standing up for your mothers, wives, sisters, girlfriends, daughters and lady BFF’s is downright uncouth. Write your elected representatives and tell them to lay the hell off of your best gals’ ladyparts.
All the pizza under the sun isn’t enough to distract from what a humongous jerk you will be if you choose not to take a stand for women’s health and reproductive rights.
