    So he should have an effective right of choice also.
    He did have a choice. He chose to have sex without a condom. His choice just comes before the pregnancy instead of after.

    No, it isn't.
    It is advocating choice for men.
    And under this, it is more likely that there would be less babies to support.

    Nor is it the pregnancy that requires taxes. IT IS DEADBEAT PARENTS - the majority fo which are DEADBEAT MEN - that requires the tax money - and all the other problems that come with child who are abandoned by their parents like higher crime rates. The bastard child you claim you get to make and then dump on society so you got your free 15 minutes of toe curling is who will burglarize my house.

    I despise deadbeat parents and any sicko rationalizations they make for it. They are the ULTIMATE meaning of being immoral scum who should live in prisons.
    I am sure glad that we have a government then because if people get to pick what they want their tax dollars to go to then we are in a heap of trouble. How about you think about it this way? Since you don't fund the entire government or any one governmental program, why don't you just pick a favorite government program and think all of your tax dollars go there. I personally just pay taxes for the NIH and NSF to fund cool research. My tax dollars fund nothing else of within the government. My state taxes, go to building highways. And my local taxes, go to funding teachers. This way your tax dollars don't pay for these deadbeat parents; other people's tax dollars do.

    Can someone help me understand how abortion and child support are equivalent?

    False dilemma.
    He chose to have sex. Not have a child.

    But under your scenario she let him penetrate her without a condom, so she is responsible.

    That childish. We all know that a child can be result and we all know that we need to protect ourselves. They are both responsible

    They are both responsible. That would be more evident if you read what I was responding too.
