How to illustrate a story about falling sperm counts

Headless pregnant woman

With a headless pregnant woman, of course!

Tick the tropes: men’s illness = women’s problem, women as bearers of fetuses, women responsible for the human race, women reduced to a state of pregnancy, women reduced to body parts. Any more?
