The ‘Bro-Choice’ Movement Is Growing


Shortly after last year's election, Sarah Silverman made a video urging men to stand up against legislative attacks on women's reproductive rights and be "bro-choice." Some listened! Mother Jones points us to a new bro-choice campaign from national campus reproductive rights group Choice USA. "Living bro-choice means having the courage to speak out against injustice, even at the risk of being alienated," the pledge states. In addition to asking men to be "outspoken champions" of reproductive justice, it urges them to "interrogate [their] own personal privileges," including "the indisputable connection between traditional representations of masculinity and reproductive oppression." Aw. Here that is, translated into bro-speak.
