    If it is purely a “woman’s right to choose” then why do men have to pay child support…?

    Just curious…

    Sounds like a personal communication problem in the relationship.
    If the couple is so far apart on their that the subject of their child’s life is a question between them perhaps the sex should be less fertile.
    If the guy just wants to poke an unknown without thinking, then no, he does not have a say and his stupid is going to cost him money.

    Go to www.prochoice.org for salient arguments for the buffer zone, such as violence and intimidation from the pro-life crowd.

    That wasn’t the question Nantucket. The question was about who is financially responsible for the child from conception to age of majority.

    Is that a sermon from the ’50s for unwed mothers.

    What does any of that have to do with my question ahab? I was asking for an answer on who is financially responsible for a child from conception to age of majority.

    If the protestors have or throw popcorn, can they just be shot??


    Why not make eunuchs of any guy who gets a woman pregnant against her will or INTENT? (rape, spousal abuse, “date rape drugs”, or just a failed condom, or refusal to use one?) Amazing that a “man’s man” screws around and brags of his conquest and hero status, but a woman is just a slut?

    Whereas Nantuckett I see this in one of two ways:
    .
    If it is a “woman’s right to choose” as the Progressive Left / pro-abortion advocates claim then she and she alone is responsible for the child from conception to age of majority and the man is just a “sperm donor.” Child support and such should be eliminated entirely.
    .
    or,
    .
    It is a couple’s right to choose and both the man and woman involved in a pregnancy and the raising of the child both get equal say just as they would in any other contractual obligation.
    The woman alone has no automatic right to end a pregnancy by elective abortion without consulting the man involved.
    It is only because of biology that the woman has to carry the child to term in any case. I could even see in this situation a case where the woman wants to electively terminate the pregnancy and the man doesn’t so he has to make some sort of payment for her carrying the child as well as the cost of medical care to delivery. That is reasonable and would make for a fair and equal contractual agreement.

    The GOP has continued a disturbing and frequent pattern of legislative and judicial activism by misusing and misrepresenting medical information in the pursuit of partisan aims focused on women and pregnancy. "But pregnant women and their physicians have been marked for particularly intense attention by legislators(and sometimes judges)acting as arbitrators of medical knowledge despite their lack of expertise or detachment. Nearly every state has passed TRAP (Targeted Regulations of Abortion Providers) laws under the guise of protecting women…Roe v.Wade was not only about a woman’s right to abortion. It was about the right to her physician’s medical judgement and best care, unconstrained by partisan strategies.

    No. I think Benson probably caught a glimpse of you.

    " If it is purely a “woman’s right to choose” then why do men have to pay child support…?"

    Because a man was 50% responsible for the pregnancy. If the pregnancy resulted from rape, his responsibility is higher.

    When women have the resources to raise a child, at least some of them will be glad to absolve the father of their child of responsibility. Until then, what is your objection to men pulling their economic weight where the raising of children is concerned?
