Should men have a say in abortion?

I say the man doesn't deserve a say. The man didn't have to carry the baby and go through labor. What gives him the right? He doesn't have to receive the abortion or anything. The man does nothing. The women deserves all the rights. Why should the man get a say in what happens to the females body? He doesn't get a say!

Yes,this is his child also.The woman is doing nothing to her body,it is all being done to the unborn baby's body.
On the flip side if the man does not want the child and mom does why is he forced to pay? Or looked at as a deadbeat if he walks away?

I think that depends. If he wants nothing to do with the girl, no. If they are in communication and or together, yes. He is still part DNA and fathers feel like mothers do. If he wants it and she doesnt, then she should sign all rights to him. Thats just imo

It isn't his body, it isn't his choice.

Women have a similar issue when it comes to adoption. If the man doesn't agree to it she has to give the baby to him, whether she wants to or not. She then has to pay child support. 

Ultimately it's up to each of us to take control of our own bodies if we don't want a pregnancy to occur.

Ultimately she's the one who makes the decision, so I agree that it is the woman's choice. But I also think a mans opinion has value in that situation and should at least be heard. Even though they don't carry the child or receive an abortion, the child is just as much theirs as it is the woman's. But ultimately they can't and shouldn't be able to force anything to happen either way.

The man should get an opinion on the abortion. If he wants to raise his child and take all of the responsibility and allow the mom to move on with her life.

No. It is the life of the Mother that is impacted.  Now after the baby is born he should have an equal say-but prior to that-the Mother is the one taking all of the risks of pregnancy and childbirth-the one who will need to be out of work for a minimum of 6 weeks and the one who has to change her life. So it is her choice to make that commitment.

In an ideal world the couple would be in agreement on all of this PRIOR to ever having sex.....

While he doesn't get a "say" in whehter she gets an abortion, he is however, stuck paying child support on a child that he didn't want in the first place.  If a woman doesn't want a child but the man is willing to raise it then he should be given the chance to be a father.

Life begins at conception, the baby has its own DNA and it is a human being in the mother's womb. Yes, it is the woman who carries & nurtures the baby while in her womb and then gives birth to a precious baby.  Man & woman have to take into consideration that all life is precious. It would be best when both mother & father to the baby can put away their personal differences and put their baby's life as their top priority.
