However, when you become pregnant, you know theres a CHANCE you COULD get pregnant, if you don't want to, use protection. People know the consequences with doing the "dirty", so if you think youre mature enough to do it, you can be mature enough to be a mom. And if you don't think you want to be a mom, theres adoption. Theres too many people who cant have babies for unknown reasons, I think that if you abort a baby, youre just throwing a smack in the face to those who cant have children.

Men should not choose what women do, and women should have the right to be able to control her baby. We do give the birth after all!!If someone was raped, I believe they have the right to abortion. Yes, however, I believe a father has the right to an opinion. Just because he doesn't have birth doesn't mean his opinions don't matter. Especially since its his child just as much as the mothers.
