    I still can't see forcing her to carry it. It would be nice if she would take his feelings into consideration though.

    Yes because if a child is born, it is a person with rights of its own.

    I think my compromise I posted a few pages back would still give the woman alot of power while being fair to the guy. I think its unfair to give one party all the power, when it involves two parties.

    I think it's quite wrong, to allow one person to chose for another how the next 18 years of their life will be effected.
    While the person gets to make their own choices, as to how their life will be.

    Your essentially promoting sexism under the guise of female equality.
    There is nothing equal or just about the situation.
    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.

    It teaches a lesson to would be pregnancy extortionists, "that **** don't fly."
    What "legal responsibilities" were you referring to, then, if not child-support?

    In so far as I know the father is not on the hook for a dime until there is a birth. You're telling me that's not so. I honestly have no clue what these pre-birth legal responsibilities are. Please educate me.

    It's the short-term side effects which will more likely discourage men from taking it.
    Would you take it, for instance, if it caused slight to moderate breast development in men?
    Weight gain? Hair loss?
    Some guys would; a lot of guys wouldn't.

    So he can't force her to carry the child, he can't force her to abort, but she can sign away her rights? Maybe I am missing something, but if people want to do this, they already can.

    Depending on the locality and laws, I believe some places require the potential father to provide support for the pregnancy.

    I remember reading something about a long while back.
    I'll see if I can find it.

    Call it what you want. Women have the right to choose what they do with their own body. Children have seperate rights once they are born. And men get to decide where they leave their sperm.
