Does a man have a right to force a woman to have an abortion when she got pregnant by using deceiving him?

  • Yes, equal rights to choose

    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 think that we should have the choice to stop it.

    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?

  • Illegal

    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.

  • Yes

    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

  • If woman Truely want to be considered equal.

    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.

  • It if unfair to the man if the woman decives him into having a child

    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.

  • Yes, because all men should have equal rights as women with regards to aborting a pregnancy.

    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.

  • The child has two sets of DNA, and both parents should decide what to do.

    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.

  • Yes, the man should have the choice to decide as well.

    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.

  • No Abortion but Relinquishment of Responsibility

    If it can be proved by state court, that the woman knowingly deceived the male into the conception of the child, the male should no longer have any legal responsibility to that fetus/child. No child support or court ordered benefits the mother would receive directly from the father of the fetus/child, will be required to be paid by that father. No state court may issue an order for a forced physical abortion.

  • A man does not have a right to force a woman to have an abortion even if she deceived him.

    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.

  • A man does not have the right to force a woman to have an abortion for any reason; it is not his choice, nor is it acceptable for him to do so.

    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.

  • A man does not have the right to force a woman to do anything, especially something as huge as an abortion.

    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.

  • Abortion should be allowed for all women

    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.

  • No, a man does not have the right to "force" a woman to have an abortion, for any reason! If she got pregnant by deception the man should have legal recourse as to his parental rights and obligations.

    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.

  • It is the woman's body, and the fetus is as much hers as it is his.

    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.

  • No, because I disagree with anyone being forced to have an abortion.

    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.

  • No, the man has no right to force the woman to have an abortion, because it is her body.

    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.

  • A man should not have the right to force a woman to have an abortion, because the decision is the woman's alone.

    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.

  • No, but...

    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.
