Absolutely, if a woman can choose to end the pregnancy against the man's wishes then he should be able to end his responsibility without hers.

How would they prove that the child that he is terminating his rights to is his? They can't do a DNA test.

Everybody has the same choice when it comes to bringing a baby into this world. Just at different times. Aka-no. Once baby is born it's both parents responsibility.

What's it matter? If it's not his he doesn't have any rights or obligations anyway.

How can you terminate your rights to a fetus?

Nope. He has his chance to wear a condom. If he fails to do so he has made his decision-to let HER be in charge.

I think he should be able to terminate his rights/responsibilities after it's been established by dna that it's actually his child. Honestly, if I can choose to abort without his say, I think he should be able to decide to terminate his rights. With the exception of if the man and woman are married obviously.

If he chooses to walk out on a child he is the one missing out. No need to let the mom think there is a chance he'll be a father to their child. Let her raise her child as she sees fit, no need to drag a deadbeat into it. Kudos to all the single moms!

I put yes, but there should be more conditions. There HAS to be proof they weren't trying, and that he was told of the pregnancy before the 12 weeks were up.
