For the sake of birth equality why not have "legal abortions" for men?
Before all the feminist and pro choice supports start lighting torches and sharpening pitch forks slow down and read the question, the logic will come to you. Feminist are always talking about gender equality, same pay for the same job, and the same opportunity of advancement or success. When it comes to birth equality, psst can you hear the crickets chirping and tumbleweeds rolling? Women have been saying since Roe v Wade “its my body and I will do with it what I want” 1st of all that is a crock, no one can do whatever they want with their body. I can donate anything usable after I die, however, if I wanted to sell a lung or a kidney to someone who needed one for money, then my body is not my own to do as I please. When it comes to babies it should not be all behind the woman, half the DNA of that child is the fathers. Fathers have no say, if he do not care to be a father and she wants to keep the child, he is forced to be a father and they come after him for money. If he wants to be a father but she don’t want to keep it because it will interfere with Spring Break or that cruise to the Bahamas he loses that chance at fatherhood and gets nothing for it.
So, why wouldn’t it be equal for men to have legal abortions and DNA compensation? A man that do not care to be the father he can sign away ANY and ALL rights to the child before the 3rd trimester. Should he do so he will not appear on the birth certificate, and be no way connected to the child, in any way, and will not own not a dime of child support. The man who is denied the opportunity to be a father when he wishes to have the child is compensated for his part of the DNA, for his part of the child he is forbidden to father with $780,000 dollars not that that would equal the lost of fatherhood owed to him from the mother.
Why would that not even the birth playing field for men? How is that unequal when it comes to say over being or not being a father against your will?
