    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.

    Hey! You with the club! Be careful not to harm that fetus! Might be a Republican someday.

    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.
    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.

    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?

    " Take your heads out of the commix once in a while!"

    That’s one State – and how well is that restraining order policed ..?

    Just curious …

    “How is pro life anti women? This is 2014 she had a choice to get pregnant. And how is a Pregnant lady being held down by a un evolved man somehow close to a truth for satire?”

    Because like it or not, rape is considered an acceptable reproductive strategy in this culture.

    Just not by women. Or at least, not all women. Some of us recognize that forcing us to bear every pregnancy to term, regardless of the circumstances of the impregnation or her life circumstances is wrong. That woman – most women in this culture – is not merely chattel, she is breeding stock.

    Until women have the right to say ‘no’ – not only to sex, but also to pregnancy, women are not free, period.

    " I totally agree.But there seems to be a double standard here. If that argument held up, it would include prostitution, ingestion of drugs, suicide, and the right to run around naked."

    What is your problem with those things? They don’t affect you, do they?

    I agree with Dr. Warbucks wholeheartedly. If what you are doing is not hurting anyone else, or obstructing their ability to make choices, then the choices I make are none of your business.

    But certainly all our lives would be better – not just women’s, but everyone’s, if women controlled their own fertility. Either women are equal members of society, or not. As things stand, they are not, they are mere breeding stock.

    “I am personally against abortions of choice, particularly women that treat it like simple birth control. "

    What makes you think there are a lot of women who treat abortion as simple birth control?

    I am sixty five years old, and all those years I have known ONE (1) woman who used abortion for birth control. One. And interesting enough, she was a RC who refused to use conventional birth control.

    My thought is that any woman who is willing (and can afford) to use abortion as birth control is probably doing the right thing. I’m not sure she’s the right person to be raising children.

    But it’s true enough that my concern is with the child, not the foetus. We lose plenty of foetuses to natural causes, and we aren’t whining about those ‘dead babies’. If we discover that Monsanto’s excesses are causing miscarriages, are we going to shut Monsanto down ..?
