It's his life, his body, his labor, the sweat of his brow. His life. His choice. Her life. Her Choice. Either both deserve choices or neither does.
I don't think anyone disagrees that it is women that get pregnant. But they have the option post coitus to decide they do not wish to be a parent - a decision that is not (and should be, if she wants to keep it) afforded to the father.You are really trying to make like there is some huge disparity in the treatment of men. But you are asking for actual equality in a system where there is no possible equality.
A woman physically has to endure the pregnancy. Even the most loving and doting of husbands cannot "feel her pain" or suffer her potential life/death health issues.
There is no equity in that situation.
How far feminism has fallen, that it is reduced to arguing for dependency.
Or not. Perhaps the NOW president has a better grasp on the feminist approach to this issue than yourself.
What an interesting argument. I wonder what your response is when people bring up in the abortion debate that if a woman didn't want to get pregnant maybe she should get better birth control or not have sex with people she isn't married to.Perhaps the cheapest route is to get a reversible vasectomy or learn how to use a condom better ( and pick a good brand)
if you're going to claim that in the sex act the man is accepting responsibility for raising a child then you have to extend the same act to the woman which delegitimizes abortion.
You don't get to have your cake and eat it too
