In the majority of the USA, abortion is something that can be done by woman's choice, and for a guy, there is really nothing to be said about it. Also in the USA, if a woman decides to have the child, the man is has to pay child support if not with the woman. Compare those to statements, and what do you have? This was a debate offered up one of my recent classes, and I found it interesting.
On the one side, us as the women, can tell a man that they have no rights as a father, and literally say "Sorry, but I'm killing your baby". At that point, all rights of being "Dad" are stripped from the man. So in the event we say "I'm killing your kid", they are not the father 100% anymore.
In the event that we say we are killing the baby, not only are they 100% the father, but so much so that they will be imprisoned if they don't pay us money.
Does that seem like a morally upstanding policy? Explain your answers either way.
My personal opinion is it is extremely hypocritical, and you can't possibly say the two phrases in a sentence without noticing it.
Oh, by the way...Fred, I'm going to be asking for child support for the baby you are 100% the Dad of, but if I decide to kill it, you are an insignificant nothing, and you are not the father...!00%. See? It doesn't work.
