Just got done reading and replying to the woman who felt some strange need to tweet her abortion....which reminded me of a situation that a girlfriend of mine had gone through years ago....pregnant with twins, she decided to abort the babies. Me personally, am against abortion unless it comes down to a life and death situation...abortions can be prevented by not having sex or using protection.
But in this situation, the young man who impregnated my friend wanted the babies, offered to take full responsibility for them, told her that he would have her sign off on them...but she didn't. I understand that it's her body and she has the right to do as she pleases with it, but when it comes to a pregnancy, and having someone willing and wanting to take on all responsibilities, I think a man should have rights to his unborn child...after all, it is half his. Really?, there are so many fathers (and mothers) now that are dead beat parents.....this was a case (not a rare one either) where the man actually wanted to be part of this....and being that this is the "CIRCLE OF MOMS" forum, I'm afraid I probably won't get too much support on this debate....But thought I would still ask...Should men have rights too?
