THIS SEEMS FAIR: Swedish group wants ‘legal abortions’ for men. “Men should have the same right as women to decide not be parents, according to a controversial new proposal from the Liberal Party’s youth wing in western Sweden (LUF Väst). . . . The group believes ‘legal abortion’ for men would promote equality between the sexes in the early stages of a pregnancy, giving men a chance to opt out. Women would also benefit if they knew from the get-go whether a man was willing to commit to parenthood, the young liberals say. . . . Some social media users have welcomed the plan but many have ridiculed it and Nilsen said the group had received a flurry of threats.”
