Tubes hold a lot of significance for women. They represent a major part of the female reproductive system. It is through these tubes that the egg travels for the first time turning a girl into a woman. It is also because of these tubes that woman have been considered useful to their male counterparts in childbearing.

It becomes a woman’s duty to bear children, feed and clothe them and take care of the household, the same tubes that are used to control the fertility of a woman. With the removal or alteration of the tubes, women are freed from these responsibilities and allowed to become truly their own.
