I've seen a few things about this lately on TV so I was just wondering what other people's opinions are on this topic, everyone here has such interesting things to say.


I do not agree with abortion at all, however I obviously have to accept that it is legal and something that happens fairly often.

YES, it is her choice alone. While I feel she should get input from the father, ultimately the decision is hers. I do feel however that the 'father' should be able to give up his paternal rights and have no legal, financial, or

Because an abortion affects no legal being, but child support IS the legal right of a born human.

the best reasoning I have heard is that all people loose the right to unilaterally terminate parental rights once their genetic material has exited their body. For men that means sperm and women that time happens to be birth

I think that women are just as interested in casual sex as men are and I think there is statistical evidence of that although I'd have to do some searching to find it as I don't have it handy.

Yes. I hope that all women would involve the father (where known) in the decision, but at the end of the day he can take off and endure no further impact whatsoever. She cannot. Whatever choice she makes, she must live with. And that's why neither the father, nor you, nor I, nor anyone who is not actually carrying that z/e/f can make the decision for her. We don't have to live with the consequences. She does.

I think these men (assuming you aren't talking about teenage boys) are becoming less common. Nevertheless I think that anyone who has unprotected casual sex is an idiot. Pregnancy is only one of many unpleasant consequences, and both men and women need to be responsible for being safe.

My rule has always been 'if it ain't in a jacket, it ain't coming in' ;o) For casual sex, anyway.
