Opting Out Of Parenthood
 
If a woman gets pregnant and decides that she wants to opt out of being a parent, she can get an abortion.

If a man knocks up a woman and decides that he wants to opt out of being a parent, he gets stuck with 18 years worth of child support. Call it $250 USD/month, that is a total payment of $54,000 USD.

I know that all cases are different, but does anyone else see a problem with this system?

And don't try to light me up, intimating that I'm against people paying their fair share for their kids, because that's not the issue here. I'm talking about equal rights for men and women, as far as parenting goes. And equal responsibilities, as well.

It's in her body, so it's her call.
Men opt out of parenthood by keeping their sauce out of the pot.

So how was putting up the tree with your son?

I definitely think that if men didnít have to pay child support more women would get abortions and that would be better. Abortions should be free and come with a nice box of steaks. Voluntary sterilization should be rewarded as well for men and women.

I actually do think itís reasonable for the man to be able to say I want this baby aborted. If he does the state should take over child support if the woman and man agree to be sterilized.

Less people = mo better

Nah. The man's right to have any say in whether the child gets to exist or not starts and ends with where he blows his load. After that = cry moar.

Merit - "I would never hit a woman. Unless she was acting like a BITCH."

the irony that the answer to Merit's problem also makes one no longer a man in his eyes

maybe child support payments are the defining attribute of masculinity
