Now that men cannot rely on abortions anymore to shirk their parental responsibilities, many are requesting permanent sterilizations instead.
And the abortion chain Planned Parenthood is stepping up to meet their requests.
Planned Parenthood has expanded its vasectomy services to new locations in Tucson, Arizona and Hammond, Indiana.
“This was a direct response to what our community has been asking for. We listen to what the community needs are, and we do our best to meet them,” Planned Parenthood Arizona medical director Dr. Jill Gibson told the Arizona Republic.
She said this is the first time in a decade that Planned Parenthood has provided vasectomies in Arizona.

Many of Planned Parenthood’s non-abortion services have been declining rapidly over the past decade, according to its own annual reports. Meanwhile, its abortion numbers have been steadily increasing, and Planned Parenthood reported a record 383,460 abortions in 2020.
However, that number is expected to drop due to the overturning of Roe v. Wade and state laws that protect unborn babies from abortion. In Arizona, abortions still are legal up to 15 weeks and, in Indiana, up to 20 weeks. Both states have laws that protect unborn babies by banning elective abortions, but neither is in effect due to legal challenges.
Meanwhile, the billion-dollar “nonprofit” Planned Parenthood has found a new stream of revenue in sterilizations. According to the Republic, it charges $750 per vasectomy for people without insurance; Medicaid and private insurance companies often pay for the procedure.
Planned Parenthood Great Northwest CEO Rebecca Gibron said her affiliate, which includes Indiana, has seen a 40-percent increase in vasectomies since the Dobbs v. Jackson ruling, WVXU News reports.
Grace Shih, director of vasectomy services at the affiliate, described the sterilization procedure as an “act of love” by “sperm-producing patients” in a statement.
More accurately, it could be described as an act of responsibility. The growing demand suggests people were acting irresponsibly, depending on legalized abortion to abort unborn babies rather than using birth control or getting sterilized. The good news is the trend will result in fewer unborn babies being killed in abortions. However, many couples also could miss out on the joy of raising a child.
