Poverty, bad timing, too young, don't
want children and never did, not in love with the father, etc are all some of the reasons many women give for their abortion decisions. And for most PC's any reason is good enough to abort. But, when a man gets a woman pregnant, and uses the same reasoning to leave the pregnant woman, we bastardize him, we degrade him, we gripe that he is a misrable POS, etc. We say that they are irresponsible and only think with their penis, we say that they are dead beats, we say that he is not good enough to be a father etc. And, when these men move on and do create a family that they want, we say that they are doing the child they left behind an injustice and hate him all the more.
If it is good for the gander ladies, why is it not good for the goose? What is the big difference other than the fact that the father not acknowledging his obligation and the child's life doesn't lead to the child's death - but the mother's actions do. In my book, I'd much rather not have a father than not be here.
