It is an interesting point though. I am completely pro-choice. However in the public discourse the father’s voice is rarely heard, or allowed to enter the discussion. If he wants to keep and raise the child, taking full responsibility and custody, at what point do his rights and desires have any sort of valid claim? The father is just as much a parent of that child as the mother, both biologically/genetically and in western society’s culturally established rules of parental responsibility, so at what point during the decision making process related to abortion does the father’s desire become legitimate? OR- It is the woman’s body, and any claim the father may try and stake holds no water until the baby is out, crying, into the world? I understand and acknowledge both sides of the issue in this particular regard, and it is a complicated one.
