Absolutely, women have the right to an abortion and men should too. As a woman I find it despicable that we as women have fought so hard so that we will not be forced to be mothers if we are not ready or able but the same right isn't given to a man. Any woman that has a child without the consent of the male should be criminally charged. Forcing anyone against their will to be a parent is wrong.
I was with a woman who is now 2 months pregnant. She left me a week ago and is already back with her ex girlfriend. She used me and pretended to love me just so I would get her pregnant for her and her girlfriend to have a baby. Now does it seem fair that I should be forced to support a child when I was just being used?
A man should have the right to force the woman he impregnated to abort, as long as he bears the abortion expenses. I think it is unfair that a man has to be financially responsible/pay child support to a child that he didn't want in the first place. If women can avoid birthing the child, men should have the same right too.
Men are forced to pay for and rear the child if the child is born. Either on the hook for child support or in other ways. Men do not have equal rights with women. Men should be allowed to decide the same way women can decide. Whether the answer is for or against abortion.
A woman has all the say and the man has none. A man needs equal say. A woman can trap a man into having a baby but a man can't trap a woman. If either one doesn't want it, it should be anyone's choice to abort. Fair is fair. Anytime you're using a condom I guess you could say you ended a possible life.
Though I must question what sort of deception the woman used that could have been prevented by the man if he wasn't stupid. Regardless, yes, the child belongs to both parents, and so both should be present for the decision about what to do with the child. If the father is unfit to raise him, and believes neither is the woman, then he is in full right to call for an abortion.
A man should also have a say in what he wants. For the woman to deceive the man to have a child is no different than a man forcing a woman to have a child. The woman already made the decision to have a child without the man's consent so the man should be able to force an abortion without the woman's consent.
I can't even keep count of how many men I know have been lied to about the woman being on birth control and stupidly trusting these women, all of a sudden they get pregnant.
I know one guy who ended the relationship with a woman because she was obsessive and clingy and he wasn't feeling it. A few days later she calls and says she's pregnant, he feels guilty and goes back and it turns out she didn't actually get pregnant until 2 wks after he went back. She had lied about being pregnant and since he thought he didn't have to use condoms any more (shes already pregnant)... She obviously went off birth control. Of course she refused to have an abortion. He left anyway and resents her to this day. Trapping a man by getting pregnant never works. Yes the man should have a legal say in whether the pregnancy goes ahead or not.
Well so a man has to live with the choice that the women made to have the child and they don't stay together, the women runs to the court house and files for child support for a choice that the women made. Where is the justice here. She should be responsible for her actions. So there goes a big loop in the system, how many millions of baby are born this way. God we need a better way to approach this and the courts or justice is not working.
If a woman can have an abortion without the fathers consent, he should have the right to force an abortion if its not his desire to have the child. Women are so caught up with having a baby usually for various selfish reasons ( financial support,wanting to trap the man, loneliness,"clock ticking", or just wanting to be a mother). Women should consider the future of the child's well being whether or not the woman is financially stable, The dissolved stable family structure without both biological parents should be taken into consideration. It is not always best to bring a child into this world where emotional scars of abandonment or lies will hinder the child's psyche. There are too many single parent households because of unprotected sex and what one side of the equation thinks is best. WOMEN, find a man that wants to be your child's father.
I noticed the use of "force" in question. I am replying yes only to the basic gist of the question. No man, or woman, has the right to "force" anything of the sort. A woman reluctant to abortion is just the same as her "forcing" the man into parenthood. What's the difference? Realistically, we cannot bring every single couple facing this dilemma into court for an official to decide. I cannot even conceive of a way to equate the decision of both partners, let alone decide who gets to abort.
I was trapped by a stupid selfish woman. I feel I would have been within my moral right, if not legal, to walk away and have no contact. Unfortunately, because I have a moral compass, I didn't. Children need fathers, regardless of what airheaded selfish women think. If parenting is a joint endeavour, and the law sees it as such, then men are entitled to have a say.
Women get to decide for the men, not taking into consideration that the men might not be ready to be parents or do not want to be parents or might not have the financial stability to be parents. Yet, the law backs women up under the pretext of ( Is the womans right to do what they want with their body). IF ONE OF THE PARENTS SAYS NO TO HAVING A CHILD IT SHOULD BE A TERMINATED PREGNANCY BY LAW.
Should be regarded as illegal and should be considered a serious offense. Sure accidents occur, but when someone purposely deceived someone else it some be regarded as a crime. If a man were to force a women to get pregnant without her consent it would be regarded as a assault, or rape.
Your your partner does not want to take the relationship to the next step it should be his/her choice.
A baby is the joint custodial obligation of both the father and the mother. Yes, she has to carry that baby around for 9 months. But, after than nine months, the man has to take care of that child for 18 years. If a woman is planning on taking care of the child, raising it without the man at all (I mean no child support, no visits, no contact whatsoever) then she can choose to ignore his request for abortion. BUT if she wants any of those things, then she must respect the request. If a man didn't plan to get a woman pregnant, and he in fact took precautions against it, that is a clear indication before any consensual sex that he does not want a child at this point.
Childbirth is a serious matter for any individual. In this day and age children are usually accidents, thats a shame. Currently there is no legal action that a man may take should a partner decide to abort and embryo or a fetus. So if an accident is born, the male is required to incur expenses for decades, yet if woman are equal to men, they should not be able to make these decisions alone.
If woman have the right to choose their reproductive future.Then men should too. How many woman poke holes in condoms or stop taking the pill to have a child without the Mans consent? Think of the amount of men that have no SAY over their OWN reproductive future. If it wasn't permanent, I would get a vasectomy until i wanted children.
If a man will also be involved either emotionally and or financially, He has a right
The man would have input on this, particularly if he were deceived. The baby is, however, a product of the man and the woman. The female has as much decision-making power in this scenario as the man (perhaps more since she is carrying the child). The couple can discuss an abortion, but the man cannot force it.
Abortions should be allowed to all women because they have the basic right of controlling their lifestyle and their own body. Because when women fall pregnant, it’s not always planned. Some women will have the baby because they were planning with their partner that they wanted to go through pregnancy. But for other women and teenagers, it could be the worst thing they could do at the time. A child is not east to look after and they require a very big responsibility. Some young teenagers are not ready to take on that responsibility when they find out they’re pregnant, so they have an abortion, which is perfectly safe for them to do. Abortion is really the best solution in this situation. It saves having to worry about looking after a baby that needs full attention, while at the same time you are trying to look after yourself, as you get older.
A man does not have the right to force a woman into having an abortion when she got pregnant by using deception because it is irresponsible. Pregnancy and having a baby should be discussed first, and both parties should be on the same page about it. If not, use a condom or another form of reliable birth control.
No man ever has the right to "force" a woman to have an abortion. Being pregnant is an action that effects the woman's body and she should have sole control over medical procedures that effect her body and her unborn child. If in fact the woman got pregnant using deception then the man (father) should be allowed to renounce his parental rights and have no further legal obligation to support the child or mother.
No, it's her body.
But it shouldn't prevent it being found as a reason the man is not responsible for paying her child care. Tough to prove it in court...use a rubber, guys. And if the kid doesn't have your DNA, you shouldn't be found responsible, either.
No, but by the same token he should not be held responsible for providing financial support for the child as long as he can prove that he was deceived. But if the woman is willing to assume responsibility for the child, then she should be allowed to carry it to term. I think this should be put in writing with a contract to absolve him of this duty too.
Regardless of one's views on abortion, it is a medical procedure, and we do not allow any one person to force another person to undergo unwanted medical procedures. For a man to force a woman to have an abortion, whatever the reason, would be not only a violation of her body but also of her human rights. It is not his body, so he should not have control over what is done to it.
Even if a woman deceived a man into getting her pregnant, he still does not have the right to force her to kill her baby, which grows inside her. A woman may be deceitful, but the man has sex with her of his own free will. (If he was forced to have sex with her, which in most cases is not possible, then criminal charges should be bought against her. But, he still should not be allowed to demand that a baby be killed.) When a man has sex he has the opportunity to do it as safely as possible. And, as long as he is having sex with a woman, he knows that the possibility of pregnancy is always there. Pregnancy is the risk that he takes.
No man should be allowed to force a woman into an abortion. Accidents do happen - no form of contraception is 100% safe as we all know. It's a woman's body and fetus that we are talking about here so it is ultimately her decision as to whether she undergoes a termination.
That said, as the law stands in the UK, a man currently has absolutely no say in an unplanned pregnancy which is a little worrying considering that if the child is born, the man will have a legal obligation to that child for 18 years - whether he wants to or not. I don't know the answer - perhaps the family courts could rule on limited liability to the father if he doesn't want the pregnancy to go ahead, but there should be absolutely no way that a woman should be forced or pressured into an abortion.
A man should never have the right to force a woman to have an abortion, under any circumstances. If an abortion is to happen at all, it should always be the mutual decision of the two partners. But in the end, the decision is ultimately up to the woman, and nobody should be able to force her to do anything against her will.
Unless she literally forced him to have sex, he still made a choice. Part of being a man is accepting that, if you choose to have sex, it could result in pregnancy, no matter how careful with contraception you are and because it is her body, you don't have a choice over what she does. If this really bothers a man, he shouldn't have sex with her.
Being a woman has several downsides, including the possibility of becoming pregnant to someone who refuses to support your child. Not being able to control what she does with it is one of the few downsides of being male. We don't get a choice about everything in life because life isn't fair. Simple really
It takes two to tango and there obviously wasn't much precaution taken to prevent the pregnancy. But my biggest argument is that not only does an abortion kill the innocent child but it will effect the mothers emotions for the rest of her life. Men don't feel the emotional attachment to a pregnancy like woman do and I have experienced this first hand. I had an abortion at 16 years old. Yes, I was far too young to be having a child but it broke my heart and soul. When it came close to my due date and I realized what I had done I fell into a deep, dark depression. I stopped eating and sleeping for nearly a week and my grandfather had no choice but to have me placed in an institution. It took them nearly a month to get me some what back to normal. To this day it is the only thing in life that I regret and I will urge any woman with doubt to say no to abortion.
While it would be unethical to lie to a man in order to get him to impregnate you, allowing men to dictate the terms of an abortion seems like a wildly irresponsible way to address this situation. If a man is not happy about a woman lying to him to create a pregnancy, he could choose to disown her, rather than terminate the pregnancy. Defining "deception" would be highly subjective, and it could lead to situations where any man not happy about becoming a father could decide the woman has no right to become a mother.
Anytime a man has sexual intercourse with a woman, the chance of pregnancy is a real issue whether the woman or the man claims it is impossible. Once the pregnancy occurs, only the woman has the right to decide to have an abortion as it is her body and her emotional and mental state that will suffer a lifetime if she makes the decision to abort.
Although a man may feel like he was deceived, it does not give them the right to force another to abort a fetus. In this day and age, condoms are more reliable and, regardless of what she claims her birth control to be, he still holds some responsibility in the situation. No birth control is 100%, due to every woman's body being different. The only real basis a man would have for such a claim would be if there was a contract drawn up stating that if the woman got pregnant, then she would have an abortion. And, the likeliness of that is somewhat ridiculous. It's just as ridiculous as forcing a woman to have an abortion, even if she was deceptive.
It is a woman's decision whether or not to carry a child. Unfortunately, men do not have many rights when it comes to this issue. Including the fact that they have no rights to stop an abortion if the woman deems it necessary. It is not physically their body that is or is not in jeopardy. It is sad that we as human beings have to make such difficult decisions; however, the one sure way to avoid such a decision is to abstain in the first place. I do feel, however, that the man should have a right to "sign off" on the child. If the pregnancy came about because of a deception the man should have no legal obligation to provide for the child. There should be no order of support or financial requirements.
There are no circumstances in which a person should be able to force another adult, rational person into any medical procedure, much less an abortion. Whether he was deceived or not, the man chose to have sex with her without using birth control, so he knew pregnancy was a risk. Moreover, the fetus is at least as much the woman's as it is the man's, and he should have no unilateral right to destroy it.
If the woman deceived the man into getting pregnant, then the child should be solely her responsibility. If the man wants nothing to do with the child, he should give up his parental rights and move on. At the end of the day, it is the woman's body, and her choice on whether she wants to continue with the pregnancy.
No one has the right to force a woman to have an abortion. It's her body, and her choice - ONLY her choice. It's a huge decision to have an abortion, and no one should make that for her. The fact is, when people have intercourse, there is always a chance that pregnancy may occur. So whether or not she got pregnant by "deceit", the man already knew that it could happen.
The mental effects of having an abortion can be devastating. According to my research, woman who have had abortions suffer from extreme depression due to the guilt of having killed an unborn child and not given a human a chance to live. Abortion poses grave risks to the mother during the operation because of the possibility of complications. A torn cervix or perforation in the wall of the uterus could leave the woman unable to have children later in life.
The woman who deceives her partner to get pregnant has done something wrong. A good case can be made that the man in such a case has no obligation to support the child. But that possibility has no bearing on whether he has a right to demand that the woman obtain an abortion. Yes, she has gotten pregnant through manipulating him. But he has no more right to demand abortion than he would had she been using birth control that simply failed. In either case her pregnancy occurs in her body, not his. How she treats it from this point forward is and must be her decision alone. Any other decision violates her autonomy in the most profound way. Two wrongs do not make a right.
A woman should be free to choose to raise a child however in doing so with a reluctant father the mother should have to waiver all of the fathers responsibilities towards the child. The woman has the final say and that is what matters. So if she chooses to keep it she also chooses not to get support from the father.
