We frequently read about pro-choicers and pro-lifers and what their take is on the issue of abortion. I am starting this thread not to start a debate on whether abortion should be leagl or not. BUT rather whether men should really be excluded from the choice of abortion.
Would it come down to forcing a woman to carry a baby full term on the father's request? How could this be imposed? Keep her in restraints for 9 months?
I agree the father should be consulted.. but ultimately it's her choice. As for people thinking the 'my body' argument is silly.. grow a uterus.
It would be a hell of a risk for a woman to put her body through that.. give birth and find the father that wanted the baby has disapeared though.
Likewise.. if a man wants his gf to terminate and she says no.. his problem. He should have protected himself if he didn't want to be in that situation.. saying 'but she said she was on the pill' after the fact is just pointless [same thing my cousin said- he's a daddy now.]

actually riley even using protecton isn't enough. The supreme court recently ruled that a man "looses all rights to his sperm upon ejculaton"
The case was a woman who had taken the condom and put it in her freezer for artficial insemination. Even though the man had taken every step possible not to impregnate her, and she had intentionally impregnated herself the court ruled he had to pay child support.
Men are not equal when t comes to anything regarding chldren. Women have all the rights men have none.
Do men have any rights concerning abortion?
