I was reading another post in another community and someone said they thought men should be able to terminate their rights before the women is 20 weeks just like a women can terminate the pregnancy.
I started thinking about it....and I'm not sure 100% how I feel, but it the idea does have some merit. If a women doesn't have to be forced into motherhood why should a father? I know he made the choice to have sex but then again so did the mom. Yet she has options...morning after pill, abortion, etc. Yes it would mean becoming a single mom if she chose to keep the baby but chances are that if the dad would terminate rights at 20 weeks he probably wouldn't have stuck around anyway.
As I said I am not totally sure how I feel and I'm sure there are a million different things I haven't thought of but I just thought it was interesting. What do you think?
