Well the woman DOES have to carry the child for nine months. Said child is going to be taking nutrients she is putting into her body for itself, it's weight will cause the woman not to be as mobile, she'll have to change her lifestyle, her body goes through changes. So while I DO agree that the man should be somewhat involved, I wouldn't say that the man should have 50% input. I'd give the woman overriding authority no matter what.
A business built on the back of child murder. Leaves a horrible taste in the back of my mouth.

If the man can be held financially liable for the next 18 years, why shouldn't he have just as much say?

Dude, you will NEVER, EVER understand what it's like to have to make a decision that is women's to make.

There is no doubt that women carry the burden. But should a potential child be taken from this world because of the mothers or fathers irresponsibility?
It's not that hard to request a lover or a spouse to use protection. The blame stops at the point of ejaculation because both parties didn't take precautions and as a result a child may never see the light of day.
If Christians were TRULY about actually REDUCING abortions instead of just trying to push their morality down everyone's throats like usual, they'd be more open to exploring these ideas that would actually REDUCE abortions instead of force them to go underground and become VERY unsafe.
If two young, loving, consenting adults at college or university are in an intimate relationship and are taking all the necessary steps for safe intimacy.. What if then the female falls pregnant?

Can you imagine the level of poverty and ruin this world would undergoe if contraception and abortion wasn't available? As an example take those adverts you see of staving children in foreign countries, dying in the streets with not enough energy to keep the flies off of them. Without the option of contraception and abortion those 'adverts' could very well be in your country.

Can you imagine how much better our world and our society would be if people no longer divorced sex from life - if sex was appreciated for it's intended purpose and not relegated to self-serving recreation?
