I was recently looking through a certain message board and the subject of abortion came up. The back and forth went on and on until the sub-subject of a man’s responsibility if a woman decided to have a child after a one-night stand. One ale poster said basically,“Child-rearing is a woman’s job. Why should a guy be forced to pay for a child she decided to have when he did not want it in the first place?”
Another male poster (who was pro-life, BTW) said that if she decided to have the child, she could then “hold money over the guy over the next 18 years.”
I’m not a feminist----but I feel it is not a “burden” to pay for child support—it is a moral obligation after BOTH sides were irresponsible in their actions. I was ticked off at these people. :mad::mad:
I fell it is this “it’s your fault, honey----I’ out of here” sort of attitude that contributes to the stereotype of en not stepping up and taking responsibility for something like this—and also contributes for men being left out of the “discussion” as to a possible abortion.
Men and women BOTH should be parents in raising a child----children need BOTH parents----don’t you agree? Women need to stop having abortions and men need to step up and take responsibility for thei children and their obligations!!!
Anybody agree with this?
