Which is exactly my argument. Feminists -say- they want equal rights, but when you get right down to it; that's untrue. If they did, men would have an equal say on abortions.
That is such an absurd argument. You still have yet to respond to anything i've actually said. That is how nature works. The male impregnates, and the female conceives. Do you see animals bemoaning the fact that the male can't be the one to conceive? No. You don't. That fact doesn't, and shouldn't, give the woman more rights to say the unborn should live, or die. There is no logic to that argument at all. They BOTH created the life. They BOTH knew the consequences. Live with what you've done, or, quite simply, don't do it.

You posted a list that is one person's opinion, ironically written by a woman. The problem with using this kind of thing as evidence is that it has no statistical evidence at all. It's just some blogger's attempt to garner traffic to their website with a hot-button item, and written in a way that will catch someone's attention to click a link.
No, it doesn't. The FACT is that both parties (yet AGAIN, except for in extream cases) did 'the deed', fully knowing that a child could possibly be the outcome, even WITH 'protection'. They BOTH create the life. Without one, or the other, it's not possible. Your argument that the mother have every right because the CHILD is a part of her body, is no less superfluous than my argument about animals. Without the male, she couldn't have the child.
So since both parties did this knowing full well what COULD come of it, they should have to live with the consequences. Period. Neither should honestly have a voice on wether a unborn child lives, or dies. Nature should have that say.
