    1973 was potentially one of the worst years for us straight white males on record, as women were seen to have a constitutional right to have control over their bodies, via the Roe vs. Wade decision.
    Abortion does represent a significant issue for the rights of fathers, since it allows absolutely no input from one of the parents on whether the child will be permitted to live. That's a fairly serious infraction against rights.

      I'm sure the vast majority of women in a long-term relationship discuss it with their partner.

      And those not in a relationship should feel free to do what they need to do, especially if the pregnancy was unintended.

      Of course, if it's a young girl, family may need to be involved.

      Personally, I think the woman has the ultimate say so. It is her body and her life. In too many cases the mother is left to shoulder the burden of child-rearing while the father is free to skip off.

      But then again, I'm a childless male....so what do I know?

      But then again, I was conceived before my mother got married to my dad. I think her life would have been much happier if she had aborted me and not married my jerk of a father just past her 17th birthday. She endured 20 years of hell on my behalf.......
