    Well if we're going strictly by BIOLOGY, then abortion shouldn't be an option for the woman either. BIOLOGY does not give women an option for abortion. The LAW does. And the law should likewise give the man an option.

    Not true. Abortion is a natural behavior in humans (and a couple other species as well). Humans have been aborting since the beginning of time, and they continue to abort even when it's illegal.

    I am absolutely for any safe, effective contraceptive that allows anyone, male or female, to control their own reproductive freedoms.

    Next time you get hit by a drunk, refuse to let the paramedics help you. This is nothing but sexist BS.
    understanding that women get pregnant and men do not is sexist? Then I suggest scientists work out a way to tranfer the fetus to men to end such sexism created by nature

    I am sure the law does not stop a man from having an abortion

    This is not about deciding what to do with a pregnancy. This is about deciding what to do about SOMEONE ELSE'S decision.

    The woman gets to decide about the pregnancy. The man should get to decide whether or not he wants to be involved with the woman's decision.

    So a man should have authority over what a woman does for 9 months?

    Does the women get to have the same right to prevent men from doing something for the same time period

    No. A man should have authority over how he spends his own time and money.

    The woman can decide to do whatever she wants with the pregnancy. She should not be able to decide to force the man to support her when he never agreed to her decision.

    I don't think there's anything "natural" about it. It is always done by artificial means. I mean, there is no natural, biological mechanism by which a woman can intentionally miscarry. And I've read the couple of examples of "abortions" in other species. They don't sound anything like abortions, to me.

    Anyway, it's moot, because we're talking about the here and now, and the question is one of legal fairness. Today, in this country, the law gives women the right to have an abortion. Biology was never consulted about it. And the truth is, if abortion were made illegal except in cases of rape or life-threatening condition, I wouldn't be arguing that men should have a way to opt out. I don't believe that either should. But as long as the law continues to grant the right to one, it should also grant the right to the other.

    I noticed how you still haven't figured out how you got everything backwards so far. You are saying men should be able to forced to care for children, but women can basically kill whatever they want. The logic in that is in fact backwards. It makes more sense to say that the woman can't abort and the man is not forced into something if we are dealing with a responsibility argument, but you are in fact doing the exact opposite.
