Reproduction and the new man.



Changing attitudes, especially by men, towards interpersonal relationships, including commitment in sexuality, has shifted the concern about reproductive issues towards men. Traditionally reproductive issues have been predominantly the concern of women, for instance male participation in contraception is traditionally about 15%, but a new man has begun to emerge that is interested in the male role in contraception, abortion and pregnancy. This work is an attempt to analyze some issues surrounding reproductive issues from the male perspective of increased mutual responsibility in sexuality. Suggestions are made that link attitudes to sexual relationships and reproduction as well as child care and support. It is assumed for the purposes of this paper that all sexual relationships that produce a child involved conception which automatically tie in contraception and abortion. This work confines itself to discussions of heterosexual relationships but recognizes that the issues of homosexual and bi-sexual relationships does have merit and weight in these issues.
