@EthicsPhilosopher, who are you to tell him what to do when he takes pictures? If he wants to take a shirtless selfie and use it as a profile pic, it's his right. by the way, your sexuality has nothing to do with how you view other people's bodies.

Again, his profile, he can do what he wants. Don't look at the picture.

The only reason i am even taking the time to respond is that i get tired of people trying to ask other's to dress a certain way or take certain kinds of pictures over the internet. I don't like seeing every single girls cleavage on facebook, but i don't make it a point to say anything. It's their profile, they can post what they want; generally shirtless photos can't be taken down due to obscenity.

BTW @BehindYou, i know you don't need me to defend you, i just get really tired of idiotic comments like that one..

Very few people will argue that a man has any legal means to have his voice heard, and taken heavily into account, when it comes to abortion, or have has a moral right to do so. Now, maybe if you were to debate whether a man is morally allowed to make the decision to be a father willingly (as in surrender paternal rights and responsibilities) post-coitus as women do, i would gladly debate that. (Her body, her choice, her responsibility)

Pro-choicers would not argue for forced abortion, though even moderate pro-lifers would argue that she made her choice when she decided to have sex, as people say about men (the old "he should have kept it in his pants" thing, applied to women "should have kept her pants on") and shouldn't be allowed an abortion.

I just need to say something before I say anything else...

Please. If you are going to take a selfie, put a shirt on..

b.t.w, before anyone asks, no, I am not a lesbien..

I just dont really give a crap about if some guy I dont even know, on a debate website, has a 6 pack.

I'm kind of ignorant in this particular debate subject, but I don't think that would be right. You're forcing a straining nine-month condition upon someone else against their will. The UN actually considers forced pregnancy a crime against humanity. I think a father should not be legally forced into parenthood, and if he wants a baby and the mother doesn't, adoption is always an option. Nobody has a right to cruelly, inconsiderately infringe on someone else's bodily integrity like that.

By "should have a say", do you mean that the father, if able, should have to give consent before an abortion takes place?
