You know, my DH tends to be pretty apathetic about a lot of the social issues that are important to me (abortion rights, gay marriage rights, etc) and more opinionated about more "republican" issues that are less important to me. When we were dating (with no immediate plans to get married) I asked him what he thought his rights were if I were to get pregnant unexpectedly. We were thinking about stopping using condoms (I was on the pill), so it was a pretty pertinent question. He looked thoughtful for a minute and then said, "I guess it would just be up to you to decide what we'd do since you'd be the one of us pregnant." I didn't make a big deal out of it but on the inside I was thinking "this one's a keeper!". Now that we're married and having children, of course, he has an expectation that I would remain pregnant if it should happen unexpectedly, but so do I :)

Even though we planned on having kids relatively soon after getting married it was still important to me for my DH to support abortion rights. Someday when I decide I'm done having kids and get TL, I will expect that to be the unequivocal end of my childbearing years. If I should become a statistic and wind up pregnant after TL, I will more than likely choose not to remain pregnant, and my DH will need to support that.

"Does this theory apply to men as well? Many here believe that a man is consenting to the possibility of becoming a father."

Yes, I believe men should be allowed to give up and not support any child he does not want. Just as I think a mother should be allowed to abort or give a child up for adoption.

"
There are studies that show that close to 1/2 of the women having an abortion did not use birth control during the month that they conceived."

Half of women is not "most" half=half.

"I am a born again Christian and God made sex for married couples, it is not something to be taken lightly, (which is where careless sex comes in) but sex gives the man and women the chance to bond and grow in their marriage. If a pregnancy is the result then the couple should rejoice because children are a gift from God."

You are you so only YOU can decide if you want to have an abortion or not. I however do not believe in your God, do not believe sex is just for married couples, and do not believe pregnanacy is a "gift from God" I am actually happily child free, very close and bonded to my husband who I had premarital sex with for 8 years before we were married.

When Gary told me he had found Jesus, I thought, Yahoo! We're rich! But it turned out to be something different.
