Interesting topic. I'll throw in my 2 cents...
First of all, I'll say that as a woman, I would have no problem with such a contract.
Secondly, yes, I can't imagine that this would/could ever be enforced. Which is too bad if both parties were in agreement. If I were the woman who
signed, or verbally agreed, I would not expect the father to be responsible and would not go after him. Also, right now there is a lot of political
talk about whether women should should be 'allowed' to have control of their own bodies, let alone considering the man's wishes.
And thirdly, I have actually thought on this topic because I have younger brothers, and as the mother of sons and a daughter, I realized that it is
only my daughter who has the ultimate decision. *It used to be seen as the girl who got left 'holding the bag' so to speak, but it is actually the
reverse now that I've thought about it.
edit to add *maybe because abortions were less accessible/available
At any rate, abstinence aside, in a situation of 'accidents happen', I feel my daughter definitely has power, my sons/brothers don't.
