    No, it's not at all "retarded". For a woman to get pregnant, she MUST participate, willingly or not. It is HER body that gets pregnant. She can get pregnant via in vitro. Whose fault is that? The doctor's? Come on Chris, you're smarter than this.

That is the solution, and it's the only equitable solution.
    I would disagree that it is the solution, but it is at least equitable.

    The MAN participates too, knowing full well of the consequences. He is NOT any more innocent than she is.

    If he is too immature to deal with those consequences, whatever they might be, then he has no business sticking his dick anywhere besides in his trousers.

    That's exactly what this thread is about. It's about men who want to be allowed to get a woman pregnant and then get to walk away scot free.

    Yes. The point is simply that we already allow women the ability to opt out of the charge of providing parenting - and so men deserve the same chance. Equal treatment regardless of gender.

    I can see it now:

    Well, I'm glad you paid the standard $500, but you're gonna need to cough up another $500 or I'm not taking this morning after pill... big daddy.

    Just as women get the chance to walk away. Women should not have the right to trap men into parenting if they do not wish to, but demand that same privilege for themselves.

    No, because when the woman "opts out" as you so eloquently put it, she doesn't leave the man to raise the child without her input. Do you see the difference here? It isn't about the woman or the man. It's about the CHILD.

    Interesting. Is that your argument about when a woman chooses to take off her clothes with regards to abortion? If she's not willing to deal with the consequences, whatever they might be, then she has no business putting anything that isn't mechanical inside her?

    I agree what that. I am not saying he is innocent. The op question was about whether or not a man should have the right to choose. Women are the only ones who have that right. Their decision is the sole seat of the power in this circumstance. If she wants to have the baby, she can choose to do so, with our without his consent. If she chooses to abort, she can do so, with or without his consent. The question is, in a circumstance where she insists on having the baby, against his wishes, does he, or should he, have any rights? According to your logic, and that of a few other posters, the man has zero rights, although he shares half the responsibility, which is solely dependent upon the whims of the woman.
