It is reported that today 1,000 men will undergo public vasectomies across the globe in support of population control by removing their own seed from what proponents call the burden that individual men contribute to the reduction of the planet's limited resources. The event is called World Vasectomy Day and supporting events will take place in 25 nations.
The event is being captured on film famed film director Jonathan Stack. Stack has previously won Emmy for his 1996 documentary entitled "Final Judgment: The Execution of Antonio James" and the 1999 Best Documentary Short Academy Award for his film "The Wildest Show in the South: The Angola Prison Rodeo". This latest film will feature Dr. Doug Stein who will be performing some of the vasectomies himself. Lest anyone think otherwise, Stack practices what he preaches and has himself undergone the procedure.
Supporters of vasectomies view the matter as a question of protecting women, families, and future generations by reducing the potential for unexpected pregnancies. Supporters are not saying that men wanting children should sacrifice that opportunity. Rather, men volunteering for the procedure no longer wish to have any children. Australia was chosen for the documentary due to what is called its high "uptake rate" in getting vasectomies.
