    This (above) is why I would never sleep with a woman who would or even might decide to abort a child I might father.

    I've lost several chances at future dates with more than a few beautiful young ladies (back when I was dating),... some of them I really cared deeply about.

    One of which had already had an abortion and couldn't deal with the fact That I refused to hold that fact against her.

    Other sites have confirmed this but they didn't have the air of official documentation for me to post here.

    My question is, what happens if she decides to abort after support has been started?
    The support stops.

    But you are, on one hand you claiming its nature and on the other you say it's a legal right.

    If it were totally up to nature, where there is no legal authority, I could just walk away.
    That's nature.
    What you're talking about is having the legal authority to use people for monetary gain.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    And yes it would be ideal if both parties protected themselves before even having sex. But women still have an extra card. It would also be nice if the woman would take into consideration the mans feelings, but legally its her right.
    How is abortion natural? If nature had its way the baby would be born no matter what. In this age of medical advancement and tech, I'm not advocating that. I'm advocating choice, for both the mother ,and the father. They both have rights IMO. There's no need to be sexist when it's convenient.

    I highly doubt it. There was a pregnancy when your support was rendered.

    The money is FOR THE CHILD. Not for the woman. The courts have a scale.

    Bleh, that sounds so horribly not right.

    I know what the intent is for but reality disproves that a lot of the times.

    I understand totally and that is your right and choice.

    Personally? I would never have one unless I got pregnant due to rape. I must tell you that I would pick to abort as there is just no way I could carry a child that is a result of rape. Is that selfish? Maybe.

    But I do support a womans choice and always will.
