I don't think any couple should ever discuss abortion. If you don't want a child then don't do sex!

Here's the role of men in abortion decisions: if he creams inside her then he must be supportive of her decision to abort the issue. However, if she decides to bring the issue to term, he must financially support her in that decision as well as far as child-support payments are concerned at the very least. It's only fair.

Both are responsible for having a child and so with the right decision. I insist that abortion should not be a solution. Couple must be aware of what they did in the first place. and therefore must take it both as a blessing. Men and women must be mature enough to decline the thought of abortion. However, yes sometimes men contribute much to the decision because it must be decided as a couple although the final thing will be more from the women.

This page makes me wish I was an abortion. But then again I've felt that way since November.

Sorry -- I know y'all hate people resurrecting old threads. But I just got to (and through) this one.

I first have to say I agree with what PSI Teleport said on page 1 -- "If you don't tell the guy before the abortion, then why bother to tell him after?"

To me, to tell him after you already made the decision without his input and took the action, means you are either trying to use that to control him, or you feel guilt. But if you didn't have enough of a relationship to tell him you were pregnant, probably a good idea just to keep silent on your choices afterward.

For me personally, it was the opposite scenario. Some 30+ years ago, I became pregnant. Was not in a serious relationship with the father, and knew I probably would not be. However, I felt obligated to let him know of the pregnancy.

He asked me to abort. I said no, I would not.

However, I also knew this to mean he had no desire to be a father or be responsible for a child, so because it was MY choice to have the baby, not his, I never made him in any way responsible for it (financially, emotionally, whatever) He never had any interaction with his biological son at all. To me, that was HIS choice when he asked me to abort, and I respected that.

And I have loved enjoying 31 years with a marvelous son.

Conversely to the original post, I don't think it is right for a woman who chooses to carry a pregnancy to use that choice to control the father of the child, against his will.

According to the anti-natalist view I recently discovered, all fetuses should be aborted as it's not ethical to bring a being into existence who will undoubtedly suffer.

Wouldn't it then follow that it's our ethical duty to kill everyone we meet on sight?
