A Mormon mother has caused controversy by arguing that unplanned pregnancies are always man's fault, no matter what the circumstances.
Gabrielle Blair, of Oakland, Calif., Traveled to Twitter to explain her views and said that the responsibility rests with men to take the initiative with contraception, since condoms are more available and have fewer side effects than the pill.
I have been listening to men express their opinion about women's reproductive rights, and I am convinced that men do not really have any interest in stopping abortion.
Blair, who runs a popular blog called Design Mom, reasoned that men who refuse to use condoms are putting their sexual pleasure before the quality of life of a woman; since pregnancies are physically demanding and childbirth is dangerous.
His comments divided the opinion in the Twitter Hilo, with many Twitter users praising his arguments, while others said he was ignoring the fact that women choose to have unprotected sex.

She wrote: & # 39; If you want to stop abortion, you should avoid unwanted pregnancies. And men are 100% responsible for unwanted pregnancies. Not really, they are.
Maybe you're thinking: TAKE TWO! And yes, two are needed for involuntary pregnancies.
Ms. Blair noted that women are more likely to get pregnant on the days they are ovulating, which is only a couple of days a month, while men can impregnate women every day of their lives from puberty to death, so the responsibility falls on them.
She argued that it is easier for men to take over contraception than women, since condoms are cheap and available to buy everywhere.
In a thread of Twitter (in the photo), he explained his belief that abortion could never be criminalized because the fault of unplanned pregnancies always falls on men
Ms. Blair said that because women can only get pregnant a couple of days a month and men can get pregnant every day of the year, they are the only ones to blame (in the photo)
On the other hand, oral contraceptives are more difficult to obtain because they need a prescription and cause side effects, such as irregular bleeding, weight gain and mood swings, he said.
Ms. Blair then pointed out that many men do not like to use condoms because they say it reduces their sexual pleasure, but this is giving pleasure to the safety of women.
She wrote: "There are men willing to risk embarrassing a woman, which means literally risking her life, her health, her social condition, her relationships and her career, so that they can experience a few minutes of pleasure a little more." This is real? Yes. Yes it is. & # 39;
He pointed out that men should have an orgasm to get a woman pregnant, but not women, so men are the only ones responsible for unwanted pregnancy, since they put their pleasure before protecting themselves against pregnancy.
She argued that contraception should be a man's responsibility, since condoms can be bought everywhere, but oral contraceptives need a prescription and can not be purchased when needed.
She added: "Women who enjoy sex are not the same as unwanted pregnancies and abortion, men who enjoy sex and have irresponsible ejaculations are what cause unwanted pregnancies and abortion."
Blair argued that the only way to reduce abortions would be to have a male contraceptive similar to the pill, which has not yet been released because it has too many side effects.
Then he suggested castration or vasectomies, and said that men would never sign up.
When asked if women should be blamed for not asking their partners to use condoms, Ms. Blair said there are "power dynamics" that would make many women unable to say no to their partners.
Ms. Blair (pictured) said that men will have to face zero consequences for unplanned pregnancy because they will not have to raise the child that results from them.
He came to the conclusion that the only way to stop unwanted pregnancies was abortion, unless men were punished for not using contraception.
Ms. Blair's comments caused a lot of debate, and many said that it is wrong for women to be innocent of unplanned pregnancy.
One tweeted: A problem with your argument: you state that men are responsible, but ultimately, it is the woman who spreads her legs. She may require you to use a condom or to close your legs. She can use an alternative to the pill like Depot Provera and IUD.
Her comments divided the opinion on the Twitter thread, with many Twitter users praising her arguments, while others said she was ignoring the fact that women choose to have unprotected sex.
Another wrote: As soon as a woman gives consent to have sex without a condom, they are also responsible for what happens next. It's like swimming with sharks. If you do, be prepared for the possibility of being killed. "
However, many Twitter users praised their arguments, and some said that they were right to assume the guilt often of women for an unplanned pregnancy and attribute it to men.
One tweeted: This is the most complete, reasonable, well researched and LOGIC set of ideas written on this topic, like, forever. I am republishing EVERYWHERE. & # 39;
Another posted: & # 39; Incredible perspective. You are 100% correct Women are forced to operate in a rigged system. I can not imagine. This should be a mandatory reading for everyone. As the father of two daughters, I hope they can have better options. "
