If the Father of the unborn child is willing and capable of caring for the child and wants to assume legal custody of child and is a fit parent, I feel he should have an equal say in the decision. There should be rights for Fathers who are able and willing.
I think this may encourage people to be more thoughtful about intimacy. I believe Men should have a say in the decision of the termination of their unborn child.
I also believe in required counseling before and after abortion as it often leads to eventual traumatic disorders and depression.

They should have a say, but not the final say, they aren't the one giving birth, or being pregnant.

There is no evidence showing that the woman has her mental wellness affected from an abortion. Who is going to pay for all of that? The main reason why a woman gets an abortion is because she is financially unstable and cannot afford to care for a child. Sure, it would be nice for a man to have the chance, but the amount of stigma around pregnancy. A abortion is for a woman not a man. A woman's body is more affected by the outcome, and if the man wanted the child then most likely she would not be having an abortion. Plus, how are you suppose to enforce that?

I disagree with this, because why would a woman get pregnant, but be financially unstable. If this is the case, then why did she even decide to get pregnant if she could not afford to care for the child. Remember this was her choice to get pregnant.

not always the choice to get pregnant

Pro-life, but allow in cases of rape, incest, or danger to the mother or child Pro-life, and I also oppose abortion for victims of rape and incest

While it usually would be the mother's choice, I do understand that there are cases where the mother didn't have a say in this or was misinformed. I disagree with abortions because I believe mothers should be held accountable for their choices and that abortions got in the way of that, but in cases where there is no accountability and the mother did this against her will, I do want to keep abortion as a thing because I believe that a woman should have a say in stuff like this, but to ensure she will commit to these responsibilities before doing the act. To infringe on that freedom is unacceptable and will be corrected.

Then it's also her choice to get an abortion. Plus sometimes she never asked for one so why get one.

It's not always a womans choice to get pregnant. And also, why do people buy drugs, electronics, and other things when they are financially unstable? Abortions should be normal healthcare, financially unstable or not.

Counseling is not just to guide someone whose mental wellness. There are Counselors trained for all kinds of things. A counselor dealing with abortion will probably ask the client why they want the abortion and will work with them to see if either getting an abortion is justified, or if there are programs that can suit the mother's needs.

The man in the relationship can something but the woman doesn't have to listen. The embryo is growing in her not him. The man has no say so in what the woman does with her body. If she decides she doesn't want to carry the embryo that is her personal choice. You cannot tell a woman what to do with her body, you can suggest something, but don't tell her she needs to do this and that.

@Jaylee-Gray from Kentucky commented…3mos

It takes two people to have a baby, so I personally believe that the parents should agree on the decision to abort the baby or not. Both opinions should be taken into consideration and talked about between the parents on what is best to do for them personally.

  1. The person who is carrying the fetus in their body should have a say. Unless the father is the one carrying the fetus, or unless the baby was born prematurely and is not in someone's body, then the mother, who is carring the fetus inside her body, should be the one to choose. Otherwise, the father would be effectively forcing someone to give birth, which is cruel and unusual, and sexist to boot. Men should have no say over the body of a pregnant person, regardless of if that man is the one who caused the pregnancy.
  2. Counseling should be available, but not required. Otherwise, we would be effectively forcing women to spend time doing something they don't want to do, once again violating their freedom and bodily autonomy

I'm personally against it but strongly believe that it's just like the presidential election, if you don't vote you can't say anything. If you disagree with abortion what are you going to do to help those kids who didn't get aborted and are now in foster homes? If you're going to be against it, do something to help. Adopt that baby of the mother you judged for wanting an abortion.

@6B39SH8Republicanfrom California  answered…2yrs

End all programs, no abortive procedures period. Lock up all doctors, nurses, staff of any facility that participated in any abortive acts. I want stiff penalties for medical staff and go after any women who have had an abortion and grandfathering it. For each abortion 15 years to life it is premeditated murder not only for the woman also the man that impregnated her!!!!!!!!!!

If you been all abortions then you may be saving babies, but you are not saving women, you do not avocate for them. Also a fifth teen year sentence, that’s a bit extreme, also I know you might not be familiar with the term, but...have you ever heard of rape?

You see you don't understand the concept that it is not your body but it is theirs. Many people say that abortions are wrong but you have no say in what a woman does with her body. Yes, it may not always be the right thing to do but some people just can't afford to have a kid at the time. It doesn't mean that you should just go kill it instead have time to think if that is what you really, and if it is that is your choice. No one gets to have a say in what you do with your body. Say someone was raped and got pregnant, do you really think a woman is going to want to keep a child that came from a man who hurt her. In some cases they do keep the baby. It really is just that woman's choice. Not yours or anybody elses.

I agree that a woman gets to choose what happens to her body- but only if it is her body. She dosen't have the right to kill a baby because the baby is its own seperate body, and the woman can't choose for it.

The fetus has neither personhood, nor the right to a woman's biological products. On either grounds, abortion is moral.

@9TSYP2LConstitution from Virginia commented…1yr

We were all once in the fetal stage of development that doesn't mean we weren't always human beings. Regardless of your definition of personhood, we morally don't have the right to end another life for our convenience. As for the stealing of a "women's biological products," we all better call our moms to apologize for the "theft." While we're at it, we can thank her for choosing life.

@9VLFTRBConstitution from Virginia commented…12mos

What is personhood? Does this definition from dictionary.com match what you mean? (https://www.dictionary.com/browse/personhood)


Do newborn infants that are 100% reliant on others to care for them in possession of personhood? What about people in comas, or those who have dementia?

oh my lord please shut up. lets say you were sexually assaulted and ended up pregnant. would you carry and raise that child ???? no. if you had an illness that if you gave birth you would lose your life. would you continue the pregnancy??? not a single should has the right to dictate what a woman does to her body or with her body. if youre not getting the abortion, dont worry about it.

I do not agree with a helpless human life being ended purely because of any unfortunate circumstance which may have created that life. But I DO NOT agree that my beliefs should be FORCED upon another. Let each make their choices until science can factually determine when life begins.

@Jackson-DanforthRepublican from Oklahoma commented…5mos

Pro-life

Science has concluded that life begins at conception. I would accept the libertarian argument to let each person make their own decision regarding this issue if the same standard was applied to other issues by the left. The same people advocating for COVID vax and mask mandates argue that its not the governments position to rule on abortion. I believe this statement would be true if the idea of power to the individual was applied everywhere else. Unfortunately, its not so that's why I disagree with your statement.

Your kidding right? This is the most ridiculous comment I have ever seen. Your IQ has nothing to with abortion. See you people who are Pro-life seem to just throw anything into the situation. A woman who decides to abort the fetes growing inside of her is her personal choice. Her IQ is just another thing that many believe a woman has to have to have a conman sense in life. Some mothers just aren't meant to be. Those who aren't ready to be mothers and keep the baby tend to be the ones who neglect and abuse their children.

I don't think this person is being serious, and he is not a pro-lifer if he is saying he thinks anyone with a 120 IQ and below( WHICH IS AVEREAGE IQ LEVEL I THINK) should be Forced to have an abortion, so stupid people aren't breeding basically. This would never happen though of course. I think it would be a good idea if high-school females were given an incentive to get an IUD, I think they have 3-5 year effectiveness, and her parents got tax credits or stimulus checks, first year free college, something to prevent teenage pregnancy, but that will never happen either.

Pro choice and pro life - sex is inevitable as well as unexpected pregnancy. Birth control should be mandatory for anyone under 18 and abortion due to irresponsible behavior as in not using birth control should be allowed but with penalty that gets more severe for repeat offenders. Drug addicted adult men and women should have mandatory birth control (implant)until drug tested clean for at least 2 years. Men who fail to use birth control share same responsibility and penalty for their contribution toward unwanted pregnancy. Late term abortions absolutely illegal and carries a minimum 18 year prison sentence. No penalty for victims of rape, incest, or medical issues including known birth defects in the fetus.

@PositiveEnergyPeace and Freedom from Guam  commented…2yrs

Mandatory birth control for those under 18??? What... You realise most don't lose their virginity until 17/18, & hormones can really mess up some women's mental state... If you are instead including things like condoms etc, than I'm not sure how you would mandate/enforce that rule... But yes, obviously the importance of safe sex should be emphasised...

It is already hard enough to prove someone is raped. That would infringe on someone's privacy to have to make them prove that they were raped, or that the pregnancy is a result of incest. Just let woman have an safe abortion instead of them having to sneak around.
