And as an expression of this natural order, either the man or the woman may choose not to keep the child and leave it to its own devices, because it is the duty and the prerogative of a family to choose the members of its family.

    That's because a pill is no replacement for a brain when it comes to birth control. It's also why Planned Parenthood is a joke of an organization.

    Otherwise you would just have women who wouldn't inform the guy until after the time limit had passed.
    Exactly. If she doesn't inform him by a certain time, he is automatically absolved of responsibility unless he takes steps to retain responsibility.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Availability and proper usage are two different things. Just because you can get it doesn't mean that you'll use it.

    So why do you think that would be?

    Abortion doesn't leave an innocent kid being deprived of resources they need to live. Failure to pay child support does. Its pathetically selfish to sacrifice children for some bull**** financial "fairness" between adults. Sometimes men become fathers unwillingly through no fault of their own, but that doesn't justify screwing over a child even worse.

    That the father should be afforded the option of disavowing himself of any and all responsibility on a whim, while the mother is left with the emotional aftermath of deciding between abortion or a lifetime of single parenthood, is utterly reprehensible, in my view. Or was it immaculate conception? No? Well gee, I guess she put herself in a family way all by herself, eh?

    I'd accept such a position, had the father used birth control himself and it had failed. Having taken precautions, I'd acknowledge sincerity and attempt at prevention. But I certainly won't countenance the argument that he can **** around, knock women up and walk away as it suits. In no other area of adult life is this attitude deemed to be acceptable. Grow the **** up and accept that unprotected sex can lead to pregnancy. Failing that, become a monk. But don't weep softly if actions have consequences. You're supposed to be a man.
