When people say: “Her body, her choice”, I can’t stop thinking how UNFAIR and SELFISH it is toward the partner. I agree with it if BOTH agree, or in cases of rape, or again, if she is left alone.
But if the partner (who contributed to the child’s creation) WANTS to have the baby, you can’t say “My body, my choice”. Of course it’s your body. But what’s inside it’s not only yours. She doesn’t have to be a mother, if she doesn’t want or if she’s not ready, but abortion means taking off the father’s voice, desires, hopes…
It’s just not right.
I remember, when I was 16, I had a friend older than me. He told me his girlfriend aborted, though he truly wanted the child and, because of that, he fell in depression and started with drugs.
Why am I sharing it? Because no one seems to care about men voices in these days. I’ll give you a news: they have feelings too and can break too.
I’m for EQUALITY but what we have is either patriarchy or feminazi. There is no equilibrium.
