Why in our day and age would we need to resort to the aspirin method. Surely straight men enjoy sex, why prevent straight women from enjoying sex too. And besides, if they don’t have sex until they die, so they can avoid pregnancy, I think that will make a lot of women unhappy. Sex provides intimacy, and we should take that away because why? Because we don’t want to let women tie their tubes.

And yes, having tubes tied is very difficult. They expect you to have two children, be married, and have your husband’s written consent in some places. Even in cases where accidentally getting pregnant might kill a woman.

As people who want to upload and/or augment our physical bodies, why is tubal ligation any big deal?
