I wouldn't be surprised if a movement came up from the GOP for the "sperm donor" to have an equal say in the abortion. Sure, it's the womans body the baby is growing in, and yes in some circumstances (such as rape) I agree with her having a choice.
I could actually see some "movement" coming about for this. Especially with the super feminist crowds that have been running rampant....it would be very fitting AND entertaining to see a movement by men wanting equal rights in the determination on the abortion of their child.
Like the woman wants to keep it and the sperm donor doesn't unless the woman signs full for responsibility of the child.

Well, that’s it the right-wing horde is coming.
Abortion rights will be gone soon for a woman in America and a lot of other rights.
CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin had a grim response Wednesday to the news that Justice Anthony Kennedy will be retiring this summer: “Roe v. Wade is doomed.”
The 81-year-old justice, who has served on the U.S. Supreme Court for 30 years, was known as a swing vote on some issues. Now President Donald Trump will have the opportunity to place a more solidly conservative judge in Kennedy’s place, tilting the nation’s highest bench further in favor of Republicans.
Soon after Kennedy made his announcement, Toobin tweeted his prediction that abortion would be illegal in 20 states within 18 months.

While I am pro life (My Libertarian streak that says the fetus is a human life and should have the right to LIFE, liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness), I don't see how the SCOTUS turns this back to a States right issue. That genie has left the bottle and I don't think it can be put back sadly. My Libertarian streak also says the Women has the ght to her decision as well, sad as that makes me when abortion is chosen.
It's a complicated Issue I see the gray area, but I wish to defend the defenseless when no one else does.
Tobin is just stirring up the hornets on both ends of the spectrum.
