Discussion of “reproductive rights” seems to always focus on the ladies. After all, we are the ones that get the brunt of that whole reproduction thing. But a new campaign from a national reproductive rights group asks the question, “What about the bros?”

“Bro-Choice” is a new project from the group Choice USA, a national organization that works with college students on reproductive rights issues. The program’s goal is “disrupting the dominant narrative that reproductive justice is a ‘women’s issue.'”

“There has been a lot of important conversation lately about rape culture, victim blaming, and masculinity, but it’s likely that many of the people who most need take part have not been brought into the dialogue,” says Andrew Jenkins, a field associate for Choice USA. “Bro-Choice is intended to reach those men who might recognize sexism and rape culture when they see it, even if they wouldn’t use those terms. We hope to turn them into vocal stakeholders in the fight against sexual assault.”

A BETTER WAY TO DO THIS?

We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and we can't afford to come up short. But when a reader recently asked how being a nonprofit makes Mother Jones different from other news organizations, we realized we needed to lay this out better: Because "in absolutely every way" is essentially the answer.

So we tried to explain why your year-end donations are so essential, and we'd like your help refining our pitch about what make Mother Jones valuable and worth reading to you.

We'd also like your support of our journalism with a year-end donation if you can right now—all online gifts will be doubled until we hit our $350,000 goal thanks to an incredibly generous donor's matching gift pledge.
