After the PBS News Hour aired a curious story Thursday on “How climate change risks impact people with disabilities,” they offered another niche left-wing cultural selection on Saturday’s PBS News Weekend, courtesy of St. Louis-based PBS “community correspondent” Gabrielle Hays, about a spike in men supposedly rushing out to get vasectomies after the Supreme Court struck down Roe v. Wade and returned the abortion issue to the states.
In true PBS woke fashion, the terms “male” and “female” and “men” and “women” rarely appeared in two stories by Hays (one a television story, one an older PBS.org print story) about the sensitive and exclusively masculine procedure. One doctor Hays talked to resorted to the bizarre and awkward term “people with uteruses” to identify the class of people formerly known as “women.”

Planned Parenthood is intimately involved in the new vasectomy movement, and Hays awkwardly attempted to show that some ideological statement was being made regarding the Dobbs decision — as if social conservatives would be trying to ban vasectomies next!
“Since the Supreme Court struck down the right to seek an abortion last year, health providers across the country say there is more interest in vasectomies as birth control. And there are efforts to make the procedure more accessible, host John Yang boasted, teeing up Hays. “Gabby, I want to get to your conversations in a bit. But first, is there data or the hard numbers to illustrate this?”
Hays was eager to give the numbers:
Yeah, there absolutely is, you know, we got a bit of a peek of what that looks like earlier this year, when researchers from the Cleveland Clinic release data that essentially shows that nationally, we saw more than a 30 percent increase in requests for vasectomies, and then a more than 20 percent increase in people actually, you know, going through with the procedure. But I think, you know, when we talk about the state of Missouri, providers here tell me they’ve seen an increase here as well to the point where they have been working even at more than a year later after the Dobbs decision to bring more access to the procedure to the uninsured and underinsured.
Hays then explained: “Planned Parenthood held a three-day vasectomy clinic and three different cities across state of Missouri (…) One person I spoke to last week told me that he got it after the Dobbs decision because he was afraid that at some point maybe the option wouldn’t be available to him in the future….”
Hays’ October 24 print article made a ridiculous comparison between abortion (what many consider the killing of a human being) to vasectomies (the blocking of male gametes from fertilizing female ova — no new human beings involved).
Aaron Willison had been thinking about getting a vasectomy done for over a decade. But after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade last year, reversing nearly 50 years of abortion rights, he knew he couldn’t wait any longer.
Willison is among the many people who sought the birth control method soon after the Dobbs decision, which determined that the Constitution did not protect the right to an abortion. SCOTUS’ reversal sent shockwaves across the country as states either moved swiftly to affirm or eliminate abortion rights….
Woke language followed on the tax-funded news outlet:
Dr. Esgar Guarín, who performed Jon’s vasectomy, said it’s important that the topic of contraception doesn’t rest solely on people with uteruses.
