I'm pretty sure this has probably been discussed here before, but I just saw it on Dr Phil, so it's on my mind now.
Both parties have consensual sexual relations and it results in a pregnancy. Mother has all the rights. It doesn't matter if he wants this baby, if he is willing to be the sole parent for this child, she can get an abortion if she wants. It doesn't matter how much he wants her to have an abortion, how much he says he does not want to be a father, if she decides to keep the baby, he is responsible to monetarily support child until he/she is 18.
Is this fair? If she has the control over the future of her life/her baby's life, shouldn't he have some control on the future of his life/his baby's life?

Mothers have more rights because they are the ones carrying the children. And, in the case of men who don't want to be fathers, they are the ones who are 90% responsible for the child. Until men can carry & give birth, the rights can not and should not be equal.
