Happy World Vasectomy Day! I got mine in 2010 from Planned Parenthood in San Francisco (which sadly is no longer there) and couldn’t be happier with the decision.
“A courageous man doesn’t run from risk, he shares responsibility with his partner. He doesn’t give in to fear. He gets a vasectomy out of love. And if that love includes concern for the planet our children will inherit, you should know that a vasectomy lowers carbon footprint 28 times more than a lifetime of reducing, reusing and recycling.
So on World Vasectomy Day we celebrate the men and women who rise as one to take responsibility for our children, our families and our future. For some this means choosing to get a vasectomy, for the doctors and providers it means doing them.”
Check out this fun, ribald poem I wrote about the experience.
