Some male students who describe themselves as “bro-choice” — i.e., men who support abortion rights — believe legal abortion makes women more likely to sleep with them, a reporter found.
Conservative videographer Caleb Bonham interviewed students at the University of Colorado at Boulder about their reasons for being pro-choice. When asked whether the availability of abortion-on-demand made it easier for male students to score with women, students of both sexes said yes.
“Bro-choice is the right choice because you know if you want to get laid — which is what college is about — you better go with the bro-choice,” said one of the male students interviewed by Bonham.
“What’s wrong with getting laid a little more?” another male student asked. “Bro-choice all the way.”
Several female students agreed that pro-choice attitudes improved male students’ casual sex lives.
Bonham asked one woman whether she would sleep with him if he was pro-life. She said no.
The students’ responses shed light on their cavalier, permissive opinions of abortion and casual sex, said Bonham in an interview with Campus Reform.
“Essentially, my video reveals a rarely discussed but prevalent self-centered mindset among the college aged pro-choice crowd,” he said in a statement. “One that views abortion as a means to ensure materialistic, responsibility-free sex.”
While the term “bro-choice” has long existed to describe pro-choice men, its online use increased earlier this month after a liberal blogger listed the possible decline of casual sex as one reason straight men should oppose a bill in the Texas state House of Representatives that would restrict abortion rights.
“Your sex life is at stake,” wrote Ben Sherman, a blogger for Burnt Orange Report. “Can you think of anything that kills the vibe faster than a woman fearing a back-alley abortion? Making abortion essentially inaccessible in Texas will add an anxiety to sex that will drastically undercut its joys. And don’t be surprised if casual sex outside of relationships becomes far more difficult to come by.”
The Texas abortion ban was approved by the state House last week, and now moves to the state Senate.
