Letter writer Dr. Marcel Binstock poses a question about whether votes by men on abortion are "an incursion on women's right to control their own destiny" and a "partial abrogation of women's right to vote" ("Abortion laws may infringe on a woman's right to control her destiny," April 7).

I believe men’s votes are invading women’s rights to choose what to do with their bodies.

Men should not have more of a say on a woman’s body than the woman herself.

If enough men outweigh the amount of women voting on her body, then men’s votes will win. That is not fair considering it is the woman’s body and her choice to do what she wants.

Abortions should not be criminalized because it is our right to have freedom to choose what we do with our bodies, women in particular.
