I hate to assume things but going by your profile picture you're a guy right? Hope so, I'd hate to be wrong :| Anyway, you don't think if you had a girlfriend, or even a wife, and she was carrying the child you helped to create, maybe even a child you were looking forward to being a dad to, you wouldn't care if she decided to have an abortion?
If she wasn’t ready for a child why would I want to force her to go through that? It really comes down to who I love more: My wife/girlfriend or something that doesn’t exist yet.
When I get into a relationship the only children to be had will be when we are BOTH ready, willing, and able. And let me tell you, someone I love will win out something might love every single time if we’re talking 1 to 1 ratios.
If a man isn't allowed to have any say in what happens to the child he helped to make, what about when a woman wants to keep her baby, and the man doesn't want to? Should he have to pay child support for something he doesn't want?
A man* can have a say in his biological child after it has been born - i.e. when it becomes a child, not a foetus. It would be good in that instance if that man* would support the child, but if he* doesn’t want to, again, it’s his* choice. What is unacceptable is a man* forcing a woman* to carry a foetus to term against her* wishes. If he* wants to have a biological child with her* so badly, he* can go out and install his* own uterus (provided he doesn’t have one already) and carry it himself*.
It’s ridiculous to argue that a man* and a woman* have equal parts to play in reproduction. Yes, their genetic material comprises roughly 50/50 of the foetus, but it is the woman* who gestates, and she should never have to go through that if she doesn’t want to/can’t/won’t survive/can’t afford etc. just because her man* wants a baby.
*It’s not only women who can get pregnant.
