I am ďpro-choiceĒ (I think women should be able to choose to abort their babies if they want to)
I am "pro-life" (against abortion)
I plunged into depression - and stayed there - when I was pregnant with our fourth child. . . there were numerous times where I wished I wasn't pregnant - but I had a lot of health and other complications. In fact, I've never had a 'normal' pregnancy where I wasn't in the hospital for a million reasons. . . I think my health issues taint my views completely.

This is a long-standing legal principle, enshrined in our laws. For some reason, some men think they deserve "special rights" when they screw
Men have the same right to make medical decisions for themselves as women do
Men have the same right to not have others make their medical decisions for themselves without their consent
No one has the right to make medical decisions for others without the other persons consent
I don't make any exceptions for the woman's right to choose. None. Likewise, I won't make any exception with a man's right to decide whether he wants to be involved. People's rights are not conditional. And when we're talking about nearly 2 decades of financial servitude, I think getting to decide you fate on that is, indeed, a right.
I do, however, think there should be a contractual signing that, once signed, is binding. It should be signed before birth - somewhere around 3-4 months seems reasonable to me.
