    Description

    In this thought-provoking short, #1 New York Times best-selling and award-winning author Jodi Picoult explores a dystopian crisis through the pinhole lens of an ex-couple experiencing an unwanted pregnancy.

    Please note: This content is intended for adults only. It features themes of pregnancy loss that may be upsetting to some listeners. Discretion is advised.

    Margot and James are broken up—for good this time. James made sure of it when he dropped the bomb on Margot: that he doesn’t want kids, ever.  

    Then, on the biggest morning of his life, James—an ambitious lawyer at a high-powered firm—wakes up pregnant. He realizes with dread that he is part of a recent epidemic of men suddenly and inexplicably becoming pregnant. His condition obvious to the higher-ups, James is denied the promotion he was expecting, sending him reeling.  

    Meanwhile, Margot, a social worker, must handle the influx of desperate, pregnant teenage boys suddenly seeking her help. When she receives a call from James with the same problem, the challenge of navigating post-Roe America hits even closer to home.

    This will only appeal to the already convinced

    I will start by saying that I am pro-life. I listened to this audiobook because I always try to listen to perspectives that are different from mine. Unfortunately, this book didn't tell me anything I didn't already know about the pro-choice perspective. Never once does this book acknowledge that an “unwanted” fetus is a baby. The word "baby" is used a couple of times, but only in reference to the baby at or after birth. Never once does the author acknowledge that many of the leaders of the pro-life movement are women. Never once is compassion or concern shown for the baby. The baby is only seen as a burden for the majority of the characters who don't want it. Case in point: the following conversation actually takes place in this book: "I just don't get why he couldn't give it up for adoption." "Because if he was pregnant, he would miss training. If he missed training, he wouldn't be chosen for the Olympic team." And then later, "When a man says he doesn't want kids, it is because his dreams and his life matter more than anything else. When a woman says she doesn't want kids, laws are passed to remind her that's not her choice to make." The baby is viewed as nothing more than something men would reject if it hindered their career (if a man could have a baby), or as a means to take away a woman's "choice." Human life has little value when it is in the womb. This book will not convince anyone who is not already convinced.

    A must read!

    Relatable to any woman who has been pregnant, had a scare, or has even just had to contemplate what would happen if you were to end up pregnant. James woke up one morning with a swollen belly. Concerned and scared he immediately heads to a doctor to understand what is happening. As he waits he sees more men, all in varying stages of pregnancy. Yes, you read right, pregnancy. “Can I get rid of it?” With the overturn of Roe v. Wade, now James and all the other pregnant men must endure what every single pregnant woman must go through. The way it effects every single section of your life, whether your ready or not, whether you wanted this or not. A teenage boy, his first time. He used a condom, but it broke. He told his girlfriend “You can’t get pregnant your first time.” Now he’s the one suffering, belly grown and a fetus developing. He goes to his counselor. “Five years ago, I could have helped you.” Men are welcomed into the world of having your choice taken away. “When a woman says she doesn’t want kids laws are passed to remind her that’s not her choice to make.” Wow. This short story captivated me from start to finish. Giving me goosebumps at times, causing tears at other. As a woman who tried and worked hard for her pregnancy, I myself even lived through some of the struggles discussed in this. Imagining not having the privilege, the security, of knowing that this is something I planned for. It’s terrifying. Women, young girls, we’re stuck fighting all over again for something as fundamental as having a choice about our bodies. Women fought so hard decades ago, and to have it ripped away so quickly, so harshly. Nobody deserves this. Read, listen, and shout it from the rooftops.

    Brilliant

    If men could get pregnant for real, they would be singing a different tune. Since they can't they have no problem telling women what to do with their bodies. Men do not want to use condoms or take birth control because of the side effects and leave all the burden on women. #MyBodyMyChoice #ProChoice

    Makes having a baby sound like having an alien

    The book is a clumsy attempt to win the pro life/pro choice controversy by asking men to imagine themselves being pregnant. Makes having a baby sound like having an alien. The book misses the point that men are biologically not designed to have babies, but women are.

    Really?

    I am pro choice but this was totally a political rant. It felt like something an eighth grade girl would write.

    If only!

    You just have to love Jodi Picoult! If only something like this were possible in today's world, it would certainly add an interesting twist to what is going on in the real world. Jodi is correct of course. If this actually happened, laws would change very quickly. She shows us this in a very dramatic and precise way how things could be different. Great listen!

    Big Issue Story

    CHOICE is Jodi Picoult’s literary reaction to the (possible) revocation of abortion choice in the USA, which makes reviewing it difficult.

    On one hand, the idea of men suddenly becoming pregnant and understanding the impact of not having choices, of being treated as “less than” in the workplace, of having the government decide what they can and cannot do with their bodies is interesting and Picoult addresses this brilliantly.

    However, I don’t like In Your Face Issue books, even when I agree with the issue addressed 1000%. Picoult lost me when she repeated how not only women can get pregnant but transmen, non-binary etc etc etc. She lost me so much I almost stopped listening to the brilliantly performed audiobook. I loathe that biological women’s issues are being erased by the false inclusion of a small percentage of people who want to take away from the very real threat women are under in this country. The ever-growing string of people wanting to get in on women’s issues only been included once I probably wouldn’t have commented, but the multiple inclusions distracted me, made this an Issue Book and lessened my enjoyment of the story. Let trans folks have their own stories and books. Let bio women have space too.

    If only…..

    This was a truly interesting, smart, fabulous listen. Imagine if…This should be required listening for anyone with a pulse. Women are being attacked each and every day. We are losing control of so much up to and including our own bodies. So many great questions and issues raised on this story, Yet another reason this is one of my favorite authors ever.

    This!!

    In a perfectly timed story, Ms Picoult hits the hypocritical nail on the head.

    EXACTLY!

    Abortion is still legal. It's still your right. But the Supreme Court is prepared to end your constitutional right to abortion. Our country is facing an abortion access crisis. By this summer, 26 states could move to ban abortion — affecting 36 million women, plus more people who can become pregnant. This is personal. #Bansoffourbodies. https://www.plannedparenthood.org/

    wish it were true

    it fits very well - sadly. In a land of limited impossibilities. No way
