Wow. What about women who think that and take responsibility to get sterilized? You think they're repulsive too?

What's really unfortunate is when women who don't want a fetus growing inside of them and want to get sterilized but CAN'T thanks to doctors who think they know the women better than the women do.

Agreed! And when an insurance company will pay for me to crank out kids, but won't pay for birth control pills or sterilization for me because they're "elective", then something is severely wrong.

It's unfortunate that men don't get a choice but the choice has to belong to the person who has to endure the consequences of the choice not someone who doesn't have to.

A man's choice ends when he allows a pregnancy to happen. Men would do well to remember that. Men can prevent pregnancies too. If you don't want kids, get snipped, don't have sex or if you do, make darned sure you're, at least, double protected.
Sorry to say this is not possible.

You really need to lighten up, Tex. You get bent out of shape for no reason. Eh, it'll happen... with time...

The Woman can do whatever she wants period. If she chooses to have the baby she'll take him to court and he'll pay child support. If she chooses not to have the child she can have an abortion. Asking the man would be nice, but its a fantasy at best. Once the act is done the ball is solely in her court.

He can offer his input and how he feels either way, but it's her body and ultimately her choice.

Hmmm... I guess it depends in the situation? I am very "pro-choice" if the girl wants to keep the baby, it shouldn't matter what any one thinks, the same way if she doesn't, however... it does take 2 to tango, and I would give him the chance to at least know what is going on...
