This is actually something many women get told when they try to get their tubes tied. ---i live in a blue state but my sister, after having her third child, still had to have her husband sign an affidavit stating he approved the tubal ligation.
This really hit me in the gut. I don't even know where to pin this.
I went through that phase and I'm not proud of it. Anytime anyone says or thinks "I'm not like other women" they should stop and seriously consider what they're implying
