If she chooses to keep the baby, she does so under her own volition with the understanding that she cannot come back at the man for any purpose or reason whatsoever.

    It's still her choice to do what she wants about the baby, and I am assuming from your question that she wants to abort the baby. If the man doesn't want her to have it, then this would not be an issue in the first place.

    If you don't have the right to murder your baby after the baby is born, then you don't hate the right to murder the baby before the baby is born.

    No, but that might be a good idea, since I'm apparently not on the same wavelength as some of the posters here.

    I would put it this way.

    She can decide whether she wants to keep or abort, it's 100% her choice, although to be honest, she's kind of an idiot if she's out having sex with men that she's not committed to, just like any man who is just sleeping around is. I really would rather idiots not breed. However, it's her body, her decision. Likewise, the man ought to have the right to decide if he's going to be financially responsible for the baby, should she decide to have it. Right now, she has all the rights, he has none whatsoever.

    Equality my ass.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
