I voted no. If a woman has the right to abort without the father's permission, the father should have to right to want nothing to do with his child.

I agree!

Quoting momma-of-three3: I voted no. If a woman has the right to abort without the father's permission, the father should have to right to want nothing to do with his child.

IDK.

I fit 3/4 of that.

DD's dad and I never married and never will, he made it very clear before I even got pregnant he didn't want another child (we used a condom and spermicide but shit happens when you party naked) I never told him until she was 7 months old. I am and will continue to raise her on my own. BUT he wants visitation. 

I have not and will not pursue child support. However, I believe that visitations should be on him since I am covering 100% of everything else.

Father should have wrapped it up if he didn't want to pay

 If he has his rights terminated, no.

No. He can't force a woman to carry a baby he wants do he shouldn't pay for one he doesn't. It should be a legal document signed before 20 weeks. If he decides later he wants contact, he is responsible for back child support, unless the mom decides she doesn't want it.

My sons bio dad made it clear when we were dating that the only reason he had his son with his ex wife was because his dad wanted him too and he didnt want anymore kids. I knew this and accepted it. When our oops happened we split and I kept him some what updated as the pregnancy went on just out of respect but I never planned on him being involved. I raised out son for his first year alone with no help from the bio dad. My current husband adopted him as soon as he could and to this day my son has never met his real dad and to be honest I dont think he knows. He is a mix so some day it will come up but I never wanted money. My son needed a dad not a paycheck and I was more then happy to work more hours and provide for him on my own.

 If he didn't want a child, then he shouldn't have had sex. It's pretty simple and that's the risk everyone runs when they have sex. You should know someone well enough to know what they're going to do in the event of an unintended pregnancy BEFORE you have sex with them. If you aren't comfortable having that conversation with them, again, the answer is DON'T HAVE SEX.
