Could abortion be considered a double standard?

Like I said earlier I take responsibility for all of my actions. If I had gotten someone pregnant I would want to know.

You'd be the first who responded yes to that question.


I answered yes when you asked me that too, so he's the second lol.

In fact I support mandatory prenatal testing. How about you?

For what? What does that have to do with the topic?

It didn't make any sense.

Figured I'd give him a chance to explain anyway.

Since the discussion centers on abortion
perhaps you are talking about "genetic defect" type prenatal testing?

Usually I'm all for the benefit of the doubt, but I doubt that's what he's talking about

OP. If you truly want an equivalence in application, then why are you not saying "If a woman has a right to abort the baby, then why can't the biological father also demand that the woman have an abortion if he wishes it?"

To be clear, I am in no way suggesting that the above concept is rational, moral or desirable in any way - but it would be the direct equivalent if one is engaging in a discussion of direct fairness while ignoring all nuances.

That is precisely what the OP is saying. In no uncertain terms.

Should there be a discussion between the "father" and the mother? Yes.
Should the "father" have the ultimate decision? According to the OP, yes.

Or the man shouldn't have to have any responsibilities for the child's life if he doesn't want it. I think for abortion both people should agree. That's the idea of equal I was getting at

I'm truly curious if the OP is intending to make that point, or if dogmatic perspective caused the OP not to see it.

Sounds like the OP wants to keep women hooked up to a machine as human incubators to give birth to a child they don't want to give birth to.

Some good Christian morals right there.

Describe what you mean by dogmatic perspective?

I wasn't bringing up my Christianity, but all lives are precious and should be protected. That's the Christian belief. Way to really put words in someone's mouth

Mandatory prenatal DNA testing. I think a man should know for sure if its his baby before going through the emotions of being in the delivery room when that baby is born.

There are other benefits as well. I knew a guy who committed suicide before his child was born, and the only way to prove paternity was through his dad's DNA. Otherwise that child would not have gotten the social security he gets now.
