    She should not be able to make a decision that burdens him. That is wrong.
    Which is why he should have the same effective right.



    That is silly to even bring up, as we have already established that she has the right over her own body and that this is an effective right to choose to terminate as she has.
    Because she should not have the right to burden him with her choice.
    It became his burden when he got her pregnant. He didn't have to do that. That is when he got to choose.

    Circles again. She controlled that.
    Which is irrelevant as we are past that point to where she gets to then make a choice which may burden him. She should not be able to burden him by her choice.
    So he should have an effective right to choose also. Just as she has.

    At no point in the pregnancy is it a compacted mass.

    By definition it is an organism from conception forward.

    Wrong. It was her body which she has full control over. She decided what she would allow into her and what she would not. She is solely responsible from that stand point.

    Did I say compacted mass, or just a mass of cells, which it is.
    Do you not understand that you are a mass of cells?

    I can go along with this if a visectomy is part of the deal.

    You're a hoot. He has just as much control over his sexuality as she does. When he agrees to the act of sex, he certainly knows that pregnancy is ALWAYS a possibility. If not, then he should not have sex because he is too irresponsible to accept the potential outcomes. It's as simple as that since there is no way to 100% avoid pregnancy other than abstinence.

    BS. is right. Birth and child hood issues are private issues, but abortion is already public and as evidence; certain restrictions are already enshrined in the law.

    Yeah. THat would probably have to be a requirement. Thus, there is only one use of the "get out of jail free card".

    Perhaps you men should tell this to the woman up front before sex. If you ever get pregnant as a result of our sex, I am not willing to provide for the child and have her sign a contract and then have it notarized. Maybe that would hold up in a court of law. Heck, it's actually not a bad idea, although you might not be getting much action anymore. Lol!
