Just days after confirming the first case of measles in the state since 2017, Maine has banned religious and philosophical exemptions for preventable disease vaccinations.

The things men actually believe about women’s bodies is exactly why men shouldn’t legislate women’s healthcare.

There’s a reason primarily male legislatures shouldn’t be making decisions about women’s bodies. Not all men are woefully ignorant about how female bodies work, but far too many are. It’s not necessarily their fault—our sex education programs definitely need a rehaul—but there’s a basic level of biology that needs to be understood before you open your mouth about women’s healthcare. Or about women’s bodies at all.
