IF the parents are not married. The woman always has the choice whether or not to abort and the dad is just stuck for 18 years paying for a child and taking away from his real family ..the one he WANTS..and i am on the womans end. I had a child at 18. His dad begged me to have an abortion even though we had been together since we were 15. I refused. So even though he has stayed in his life i am extremely lax on him. If he doesnt have cs then i dont bug him for it. He pays when he wants and sees him when he wants. I married my now hubby when he was 2.he has always taken care of him as his own. Along with the 3 we have together. Now if the parents are married and BOTH decide to have a child together than he should be responsible also. My huband who has raised him has assumed all responsibility for him and we actually separated for a while several years ago for 6 months. and he was the one who continued to support him. When he needed something i called him..granted we were working our marriage out..had we divorced i would not have expected that from him...i know some bashers will say..if he doesnt want the responsibility then dont fuck but im saying it goes both w ays. If you dont want to raise a child on ur own..than be more choosy who spread ur legs for..ultimately its not fair to the man who has no choices after the child is conceived. Women should never be forced to have an abortion and men should never be forced unwillingly into the huge debt if cs
EDIT..if you believe that a mans options end at conception than WHY oh WHY does the womans options remain..abortion AND adoption. Does she have to pay cs to the family who adopts her baby?..not one person has given one single reason why a woman should have options with an unwanted pregnancy and a man should not. A woman who gives her baby up is not even looked down on but viewed as brave..why such the double standard???..
