No matter the situation, no matter who wants what, it is my opinion that it is solely the womans choice whether or not she wants the kid, period. It
is her right to end an unwanted pregancy. Not the mans. I dont care how you see it, the womans body and anything in it belong soley to her, and thus,
anything inside it or attached to it is her descision on what to do with it. She is the one who must live with whatever consequences her descision
entails. The man should have no legal say. The whole "well, its his kid too" arguement doesnt fly. He placed his sperm in ehr body. Once it was
released into her body, it becomes hers to do with as she pleases.
As for men paying child support, if they father a child, they should pay for it if she keeps it. Its their responsibility whether they like it or not.
Now, of course its fair. Why? Because we all have choices to make. And we must deal with those consequences. Men have total control over their bodies.
Thus, no one can force them to have sex with a woman. They make that choice. Sex is not required to live. You can survive without getting laid. But if
you are a man, you also have the freedom and choice to decide on things like sterilization and birth control. If you are a man and you never want
kids, you can get a vasectomy. If you want kids some time in life, you can wear a rubber, or take male birth control injections. You cannot leave
birth control totally up to the woman. She might wish to get pregnant without your consent, or might be irresponsible and forget to take it. Thus, it
is vital that men take control over their own bodies and their own futures into their own hands, and protect themselves from all possible problems. If
they get a woman pregnant and did not use some sort of protection, and they did not want to get that partner preganant, then its their fault and they
must face whatever consequences come about.
The same goes for women. Women need to protect themselves from pregnancy that they dont want, and cannot expect men to take care of birth control, or
talk them into not using it. If they do get pregnant, then they must make the choice, and deal with whatever consequences that follow, including loss
of a relationship and other things. If a woman decides to keep a kid, but her lover doesnt want it and leaves her, she is entitled to child support
for the kid, but none for her. She shall have to carry the burden of caring for a kid alone, and will have to sacrifice alot of things.
I strongly believe in personal choice, but with freedom and choice come total personal responsibility that all persons involved must make.
If you arent willing to deal with the consequences, than dont play the game, pure and simple. Your hormones are no excuse for short term gratifying
