Male Contraceptive Initiative’s Statement on the U.S. Supreme Court Decision to Overturn Roe v. Wade
Male Contraceptive Initiative’s vision is “Reproductive Autonomy for All.”
We fund and advocate for the development of new non-hormonal, reversible contraceptives for men and sperm-producing individuals. We envision a world in which every child birth is intentional, and occurs only after careful consideration and in line with the family planning desires of those involved. Our work closes the gap in contraception that prevents men from taking an active role in avoiding a pregnancy, but most importantly, alleviates a disproportionate and undue burden for women.
The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade stands in opposition to our vision. We believe that no one should have to justify their family planning decisions to anyone outside themselves. Everyone should feel empowered or emboldened to make family planning decisions for themselves. The mission of MCI is to provide individuals with tools to help make these decisions.
We feature different ways that you can get involved in supporting our vision of “Reproductive Autonomy for All” on our website and encourage everyone to consider how best they can engage with their family, friends, and elected officials to fight against a decision that a majority of Americans disagree with.
Together we can and will change the world for the better!
All the best, The MCI Team
