My views are that it should be equal. It’s two peoples child. Not one. If its cool for women to kill “fetuses”, then it should be ok for men not to pay child support for a baby they don’t want. But it’s not. And it won’t. So something needs to be figured out for the mans side. I know, god forbid men have any say in anything, but there should be something to equalize this. My views are still quite fresh on abortion. I’m Christian and grew up in a very anti abortion environment. I’m not against abortion, but I am against everyone finding men completely useless in the birthing of a child. Especially since biologically the man is just as necessary as the woman. Without him a woman’s eggs are just a woman’s eggs. I also find it funny that just because of these two threads, I got anon hate. Idk if you said, or if it was someone else that saw this post, but frankly it’s hilarious. If someone wants to say something, then comment non anonymously.
I told you. If the cis guy wants to opt out, THEY CAN. They sign some legal forms that say they want to back out of the responsibility/rights.. and after some crossed Ts and dotted Is, he’s free. Care then falls on the pregnant person, WIC, churches, whatever the pregnant person has figured out. THEY CAN BACK OUT. They can say they don’t want to be involved. They can relinquish their rights. It’s VERY simply googled under “relinquishment of parental rights” or “termination of parental rights.”
You lose ALL responsibility BUT you lose all rights to that child in the future. You can then be absolved of financial responsibility but you will then be entirely at the whims of the pregnant person as to if you are allowed to be involved.
So no, cis guys are not “completely useless.” But their opinion is only that. An opinion. Final law of that pregnant person’s body is that of the pregnant person. They are the one who have to go through the physically exhausting process of being pregnant (which comes with potential fucktons of risks, even 650 of them dying in America a year, so maybe you should look up complications of pregnancy, complications of childbirth, complications of medications tied to pregnancy/childbirth, long term ramifications of doing those.) .. and the only one who may lose their job, fall behind in school.. Pregnancy for a healthy pregnancy runs about $9,000. If you end up having complications and the resulting newborn ends up in NICU, you’re looking at over HUNDREDS of thousands of dollars, depending on length of stay/exact complications.
So again.. the cis guy can say,”Hey, this is a thing.” and the person who would have to carry out the pregnancy can nix it or agree with it. But it is entirely their FINAL CALL.. because it’s THEIR body and no one can use someone’s body/organs/blood/energy/physical resources without continued consent.
You, as a general rule, should educate yourself on continued consent and use of someone’s body.
