 Ok so I see a lot of opinions on how its the woman's choice, abortion is murder blah blah. Personally I'm prochoice for the most part. There are certain instances where I say abortion is wrong, cheat on your husband and don't want him to know, hell the baby didn't ask to be conceived by someone other than your husband. Got pregnant on purpose changed your mind, hello no ok! Baby is the wrong gender, yeah thats just fucked up!!!

Anyway, my real question is this. What if the father of the unborn baby wants to raise the baby? What if you know this man is capable of raising the baby, really wants it but you don't? Is it really fair to abort a baby knowing that he/she can have a good life with his/her father? Should the father of the baby have a say in the termination of the pregnancy? Yes its the woman's body but its also the man's baby.

I think if its not going to negatively affect the mother's health and the father really wants the baby then the woman should atleast consider having the baby and allowing the father to have custody. If the father is a responsible man, will be a good father and take good care of the baby then why shouldn't he have that chance?

 Me too!!! As long as the woman can physically AND emotionally handle carrying the baby then the father should have the right to raise his child.

Should she consider it? Yes.

But, no man should be able to force her to carry a baby.

Does that answer the question?

 Absolutely! No man should ever be able to force a woman to either carry the baby or abort. Ultimately it is the woman's choice as it is her body.

While I think that the father should at least be able to speak his piece... I do not think that forcing a woman to be an incubator is a good thing.

 Sometimes abortion is not about not wanting a baby, it's about not wanting to be pregnant. When a man can get pregnant, then he can make that choice.
