We've given both genders an out, but gave all the control to the woman...which is absurd, not only because it takes two to tango... but his sperm is the reason she got pregnant in the first place.....in fact, I think the man should have equal if not more say, especially if he's the one who will be held financially responsible...I think if the man wants to have the child, and the woman doesn't, she could carry it to term and then get kicked to the curb.
deadbeat dads? why isn't there a term for the women?
