    I hope you're being sarcastic. Or are you saying a man who gets a woman pregnant did not personally cause her to have a baby?

    You aren't addressing my argument...

    You know what guys, if you don't want to have a baby with a woman, don't have sex with her. A lot of men like to argue that women should live by that standard, so maybe they should take it upon themselves. Unless you want to get her pregnant, keep your pants on. And by having sex with her, you implicitly agree to raise the child that comes of it, because that's the natural consequence.

    Right?

    I don't buy that myth... I know women like it... calm down.

    ...and if the man could opt out the woman would be more careful, selective and safe.

    So are the women. What exactly is your point?
    That men should be smarter...

    So you suggest we take a time machine back to when exactly?
    Why do we need to take a time machine? Is being responsible a thing of the past?....

    No, we shouldn't be. What we should be doing is being honest with kids about sex and provide them birth control. Less sexually transmitted disease fewer unwanted pregnancies. Instead we make it dirty and bad so everyone things they need to be ashamed of wanting it. You combine needless shame with parents in denial and bam, you got yourself a little Pebbles or BamBam.
    Where do you get that I think that we make sex bad and dirty? What the ****?

    Bottom line. Women can have an abortion as a means of birth control. If they don't want a kid they can have an abortion. Deflect it all you like, as most do. I'll just stick to that point and wait for somebody to refute it with logic.

    And guys could opt out claiming the kid was not his.( before DNA ) so your sweet no unwanted pregnancies and only married couples is not at all realistic.

    Also unwanted pregnancies do take place in marriage and committed relationships.
    In fact there was a study about unwanted pregnancies and abortions that take place in marriage and committed relationships.
    44 percent of the time it was the man who first brought up abortion when an unwanted pregnancy occurred.
    Who is trying to stop people from having pre-marital sex? I will never get married again and I still want to have sex.

    Given that, from the moment of conception until the point of viability (and sometimes beyond), she has the legal option of terminating the pregnancy and, if she declines to name the father, once she has given birth she has the option of unilaterally surrendering the child for adoption... yes, that is exactly what I am saying. He helped her conceive. She didn't "have a baby" until she made a series of decisions to have a baby. She has choices.

    A lot of men like to argue against that standard, too. It is no more fair and just to make such arguments against men's rights than it is to make them against women's rights.

    Right?
    If a consequence can be prevented, keeping someone from preventing it is not "letting nature take its course". Likewise, holding one person responsible for another person's decisions is not "responsibility".

    Seriously?

    But seriously folks... of course. The argument is about using BC and having it fail. What do you do then...? She can abort.
