Found this on another debating forum:
Ok... I ran into this post in another group. Male reproductive rights. I know that it is the chicks body and she has to carry the baby and give birth, and the men nothing. But she has options. The men don't have options. If the chick chooses to have the baby, he is forced to pay child support even if he didn't want the baby in the first place.
A very good friend of mine, was in a relationship with a women for 6 months. They had talked about having kids, like most couples do. They both wanted kids. He is 32 and really wants to be a father. His dad left him when he was 6 months old and he didn't hear from him until he was 28. So being a dad is a really big deal to him. She got pregnant, he was so excited. She told him that she didn't want it. He told her that he would raise the baby. She could sign over her rights and never have to worry about it. No child support. No strings. She made her decision and he was heart broken. That was his baby too. Why can't he have a say? I don't think that anyone should be forced into doing anything. But when you create a baby together, should the men have a say?
