Thankfully some normal adults can come to some sort of agreement without ignoring eachothers wishes.
@ruken: Both parties have two points where they can choose. 1. Intercourse. 3. Birth. If either parent leaves here they are rightly responsible for child support. The only one the man misses out on is 2. Abortion. That's because the baby is never in him or he could do it too. Your solution doesn't improve the situation, it just gives men a way out. For the 97th time.
he doesnt have to be there now, or keep it a secret that he wont.Seriously, don't you think women would like to know ASAP as soon as a father doesn't want it?
"Oh yeah by the way I know you just gave birth and all...but uh, I'm not going to be there."
Letting the man opt out is a better option because it doesn't take an option away from the woman. She's still free to bring the pregnancy to term or terminate it. No one has removed that choice. Given her something to think about? Certainly. Taken the choice away? Nope.
There's nothing wrong with being able to just remove yourself from the situation. You're still not limiting women's choices. You're simply not forcing men to finance theirs.
Abortion is a horrible thing, do a google search without safesearch on and don't eat while looking.
I'd never do that to anyone, I rather let the kid grow up as an orphan than do that brutal murder.
You may remember me from such threads as!
Don't hurt your wrist with that hand waving. The decisions are not analagous. The man's choice is between sticking it all on the woman and losing nothing or sharing in the burden and the woman's choice is between sharing in the burden or wiping the entire situation out.And what does that have to do with anything? Nothing, that's what.
