I know ill be bashed, but that's okay :) this is a bit of a spin off. I read a post a moment ago about men being able to sign over their rights instead of paying support. The responses were a bit biased, IMO. Alot of you were saying that any man who didn't want to have a baby should have worn a condom, shouldn't have had sex, ect ect. Ok.. But men can't choose an abortion. So why is it okay for women to not DEMAND a condom, or to go ahead and have sex when not on birth control, but then choose to abort the baby. Why should it only be a woman's choice as to if two people become parents?? Everyone preaches "her body, her choice" well.. What about his choice? I've read over and over "he shouldn't have had sex!" Neither should women who don't want babies.. But noone hollers that about her - they just excuse the abortion. There was a comment that said men give up their choice the moment they have sex... Really? And why is that not the case for women. Didn't she give up her choice too? Nope - because SHE chooses whether or not there will be a baby who is born or aborted if pregnancy does occur. This is ludicrous! A man should be allowed the same choices a woman has. No - he CAN'T force an abortion, but he should be able to give up parental rights with the same support a woman gets when she gives up hers through abortion.
Edit!!! Please don't confuse what I'm saying here... I'm not saying that women should give up their rights.. Nor am I saying that men should have a say in women's rights. What I'm saying is that EACH party should have equal rights not effected by the other.
