  • Absolutely - let's see it's X amount for an abortion, or 18 years of child support. I would think most guys would jump at the chance!

  • I think that since it's 50% his issue then he should have to help out financially but good luck making him do it.

  • i think the person should give the child up for adoption. they can give the baby a good home and pick the parents they want the baby to be adopted by. that way neither person has to pay for an abortion. they should pay for some birth control though. so that no other child has to die because of irresponisble adults.

  • Correction I mean he is against abortion. He kind of wants the baby but didnt really get upset when the girl said shes getting abortion.

  • I think if you both want the abortion, you should both pay for it. However, if you don't tell him before you have it, he shouldn't have to pay because he didn't get a choice. But as long as the choice is being made by both of you, it was made by both of you, why shouldn't the procedure be paid for by both of you. BUT, this would also mean that you were not only willing to tell him, but that you were willing to make him apart of the choice... And by doing so you are giving up the right to make the choice all alone... I think there are pros and cons to this kind of thing. But yes, if he wants you to abort, he should be willing to help pay.

  • NO. It's her body, her responsibility... not his. If she didn't want to take a chance on getting pregnant, she should have protected herself by using birth control pills or being abstinence.

  • Proudmom, if he didn't want to knock someone up who would consider abortion, he should keep it in his pants. It is both their responsibility.
