Joking aside yes, but if we live in fear of being hurt or dying people would never get out of bed. So we put aside the fear of dying to everyday things so we can function day to day. But when it is something outside the norm for us ( like abortion) we will think about that risk of death.
If men get to bear zero responsibility for a child just because they say so then that leaves the woman with 100% of the responsibility because of Biology regardless of her choice. That isn't fair. What was someone saying about making laws to circumvent Biology's inherent inequality??? Well there ya go! That's what we have on the books now.
She still has the option to abort or adopt the kid away. No one is taking those choices from her.
Do you really not see how she's choosing to bring the kid to term and, as such, if the father wants no part the entirety of the consequences of that decision should rest on her shoulders.

which is totally better than being raised by its own parent...Yeah, because adoption totally isn't another alternative. Or leaving it at a church, or leaving it at a firehouse, or leaving it at a hospital...
it essentially forces her to abort as the best possible option.If the kid's quality of life would entirely be her responsibility, that would be a choice she makes and not one that's forced upon her.

Oh, also. No one is forcing the parent that doesn't want to be involved to be physically present, regardless of gender. Child support is sufficient.
Pure hyperbole. It's not a false dichotomy in any sense of the word. If she can afford the kid she keeps it. If she can't she has choices. Don't pretend women can't be their own breadwinners.it essentially forces her to abort as the best possible option.
