Men4Choice seeks to be a partner in the movement to protect and expand reproductive rights by engaging, educating and activating men to support the cause with their voice and their vote. Men shouldn’t need to hear something from other men, though, in order to listen to it, and take action. That enough of us haven’t listened to the women leading this movement is a symbol of the very problem our society faces in the struggle for true gender equality and reproductive justice. Our hope is to work toward a future in which an organization like this is unnecessary. Until that time, we will do our best to engage, educate, and activate men as partners in this fight.

Reproductive rights are fundamental human rights. When anyone’s basic liberties are jeopardized, we are all threatened, so men must unconditionally support our mothers, sisters, wives and friends in the fight to protect them. #ThisIsWhy I stand with Men4Choice.
We live in a world where freedom and liberty are celebrated at parades and state fairs around this great nation but a woman’s right to choose is met with scorn and judgment. I joined this movement to be an ally in creating fundamental change in the hostile attitudes towards a woman’s right to choose. #ThisIsWhy
I support women's reproductive rights because a woman should be able to make her own decisions. Women should not have to fight for their own bodies. Men should be brave enough to fight for equal rights, and we need to add add their voices to this effort. #ThisIsWhy
It’s not enough to be pro-choice on election day. Not when women’s reproductive rights are under attack in this country every single day. To make a difference in the fight for gender equity, men need to understand: talk is not enough. Empathy is not enough. We need to do the work. #ThisIsWhy I am a member of Men4Choice.
Reproductive rights are a human rights issue. For too long, men have made decisions about women's bodies, lives, and futures. Having men beside us as allies in this fight is crucial. This is why I support Men4Choice. #ThisIsWhy
When women succeed, this country succeeds. I have 4 nieces, a mom, and sisters. I love and trust them to do what's right for them. Men shouldn't tell women what to do with their bodies, they should stand with them and advocate for their freedom. #ThisIsWhy
The right to control one's body and the ability to access reproductive health options are currently being legislated by those who seek to heavily restrict both, privileged people in power who are overwhelmingly male. So I believe it's imperative that men speak and act up more in support of expanding abortion access and also acknowledge that abortion has greatly benefited them personally as well. Reproductive choice isn't just an individual necessity but also extremely important for a healthy society, of which men need to be equally responsible for sustaining. #ThisIsWhy
In a country and society that historically and contemporarily has extended overwhelmingly more opportunities, choices, and privileges to cis caucasian males, change and progress on any front cannot be accomplished without support from male populations. In the United States, caucasian women achieved the right to vote nationally in 1920. Black, brown, Native American, and additional minority groups had to wait until the 1960s with the implementation of the Voting Rights Act to claim and exercise any ‘right’ to vote. Our US Congress is still 80% male and the vast majority of individuals in roles to fiscally, politically, and legally impact social change are male. The education, involvement, and loud support of male populations is critical for reproductive rights to advance forward, both for the sake of the United States’ population and also our humanitarian presence in the world. #ThisIsWhy
We must support the rights of women by educating the minds of men. The call for us to stand up and do so has never been more needed. Women are under attack. Should we choose to be bystanders we are at best complacent and at worst participants in the degrading of all women we know. Men who support women’s rights must engage. #ThisIsWhy I’ve joined the fight and, on behalf of all the women in your life, hope you will too #ThisIsWhy
For too long men have sat on the sidelines on issues of reproductive rights unless it was to try to restrict them. Men who fancied themselves as pro-choices thought it was enough to just be pro-choice, as if they had less skin in the game. It's time for that to change and for men to become more vocal and more involved in all facets of the struggle to protect a women’s right to choose. From volunteering, to fundraising, to lobbying, and to education #ThisIsWhy
I support women’s reproductive rights because I believe in a woman’s right to choose. As a social justice and equality advocate, I believe that the 4th Amendment of the Constitution grants women a right to privacy in making decisions about their bodies. I am committed to this work because I believe that it is the responsibility of those of us with knowledge to share the burden by educating and advocating on their behalf. #ThisIsWhy
Throughout our history, it has been shown that in order to ensure the success of every equality movement, support and buy-in from the greater population is necessary; particularly from the ruling class, which in this country has always been men (white men, specifically). For the Women’s Suffrage, Civil Rights, and Gay Marriage Movements, it was crucial for privileged groups to mobilize as allies - using their privilege for the benefit of others. Today, the white male ruling class still exerts its authority over women’s bodies, which is unlikely to change without the pushback of our men allies. This is why I support Men4Choice. #ThisIsWhy
Reproductive justice is everyone’s fight. It is a fight for our bodies, our families, and our rights. We need men to stand with us and fight for women’s bodies just as hard as women do - this effects everyone. M4C is a great way for men to get involved in the fight for reproductive rights and show up as true allies of women. #ThisIsWhy
To be a truly just society we all must challenge injustice and discrimination wherever it occurs. Access to abortion is fundamental to women’s equality and that matters to everyone. This is a fight that isn’t going away and M4C provides a critical space for men to join and add their voices. #ThisIsWhy
The current fight for reproductive rights is an all-hands-on-deck situation, and folks in positions of privilege--particularly men--need to use their privilege for good and voice unapologetic support for choice. M4C is the leading voice for men to get involved with this movement. #ThisIsWhy
