Thanks for the interesting points.
Very true what you note about the gender double-standards.
And as I said in my intro - no I haven't given it much thought.
But as you point out, perhaps it's not just a women's issue, so maybe I should.
Nowhere did I say I'm becoming a nurse though.
I said I'm wondering about a career in nursing.
But that's not important, because it's highly unlikely in any case.
When you refuse a pill like that, how do you judge who is abusing them as a kind of contraceptive (for pleasure) or who is deserving?
Where will they go when refused?
How much will that child be loved if it's just a "consequence" for pleasure?
I've heard about men with breast cancer, but I've never heard of a man with cervical cancer.
Perhaps that's an issue for some men and their behavior, who are more likely to spread HPV to women, but it's not an issue for all men.
