    I hear many pro-choice arguments, mostly from the point of view that it is a woman's right to decide if she wants to have a child. My question is: If a woman decides to have an abortion, but the father wants the baby and is willing to take full custody of it, does the mother have the right to terminate anyway?
    What kind of guy sleeps with a woman who would kill his children,.... or before knowing ahead of time whether she would or not?

    Since no child is born, legally it has no rights.
    It teaches a lesson to would be pregnancy extortionists, "that **** don't fly."

    Your just in favor of using to law, to give you more choices, that happen to allow you to lord over other people.

    Don't you guys read the news?
    The "male birth control pill" has been in the headlines for weeks.
    It's been developed; it's now being tested for safety.
    Google "Bright Pill".

    If the risks and side effects are comparable to what females have to endure with hormonal contraceptives, I'm not sure how many men will be willing to take them, however.
    Men have less to lose, ergo it makes sense that they'd be less likely to endure side effects which compromised their quality of life, in exchange for (relative) freedom from the risk of accidental pregnancy.

    I'm also not sure if there will be age restrictions to this "male contraceptive pill"; for instance, many doctors recommend women over 35 stop taking the pill, as the risk of contraceptive-related stroke and cardiovascular complications skyrockets at that age.
    A male contraceptive pill that was contraindicated for men over 35 would be useful in only a limited sense; men remain capable of reproducing for many, many years beyond that age, whereas female fertility is winding down by then.

    Re: Does the father have a right to stop an abortion?

    Is she going to have to pay child support to the state for her choices?
    Nope.
    If she gives up her baby for adoption, someone else takes on the care of the child.
    If it is just in the states care, she should have to pay support.

    A guy can walk away, you're just in favor of the law preventing that.

    But how does it work?

    Hopefully it has limited to no side effects and hopefully guys will use it.
    Seeing the reality of condom use, I'm not convinced.

    It is unlikely that a drug which alters the body to the extent of making one temporarily sterile would have "limited to no side effects".
