Men, are you considering having a surgical procedure to decrease your chances of having children? Don't want to pay for it? Friday may be your day!

Yahoo News reports that 750 doctors in 25 countries are planning to hold a "vasectomy-athon," with many operations being provided for free or at discounted rates. Organizers of the event hope to encourage men to take a bigger role in family planning and combat resistance to the procedure, as around 40% of pregnancies worldwide are unplanned and often result in the women dealing with the consequences.
