Vasectomy Google Searches Increase In Texas After Roe V. Wade Draft Is Leaked


While Roe v. Wade draft leak seemingly showed the 1973 ruling to be overturned, people are turning to Google and showing more of an interest in learning about a vasectomy. 

According to the Houston Chronicle, vasectomy searches spiked after Roe v. Wade draft leaked. Google records indicate that searches for the word “vasectomy” increased in Texas on May 3rd and May 4th, which was two days after the leak.

The term also increased in searches when Texas passed the law on Sept 1st that prohibits abortions after a heartbeat is detected. 

Getting a vasectomy is one of two birth controls currently available for men. With the procedure being more than 99.99% effective, about 5% of married men have opted for the birth control option, according to the Houston Chronicle.

The other birth control for men is a condom. Cheaper than a vasectomy that could cost as much as $1,000, condoms are about 85% effective.

Earlier this year, it was reported that the University of Minnesota developed a male birth control pill but it’s currently in testing.

 Dr. Abdullah al Noman and his team at the university have tested the pills on mice in clinical trials, and found the pills to be 99% effective at preventing pregnancy in the rodents. Despite those findings, the scientists have not yet found the pills to be safe on male humans.

Dr. Noman stated:

Safety is very important for birth control pills because people are not taking it for a disease, so they are less tolerant of the side effects.

Roe v. Wade is being brought into question because the Supreme Court has been asked to rule on a Mississippi law that challenges the 1973 decision.

The highest court has nine justices who serve on the bench for life. Out of those nine justices, former President Trump appointed three of them during his term. All three of Trump’s appointees reportedly voted to overturn.

This decision changed the “the political leaning of the court to one that was more skeptical about Roe v Wade and more supportive of restricting access to abortions.
