    To an extent, I can understand people marching to show they are "opposed to Trump". That is fair enough.

    But I keep hearing this is a march for "women's rights". What rights do women in America not have?
    Abortion rights for one. Some states have it pretty bad and in others Republicans want to remove them.

    Some sort of solidarity march in favour of womens rights, which they believe are under threat by Trump. Abortion, LGBT, women etc.
    It's funny they say abortion is a right and they want equal rights yet a lot of these people would be against letting a father abort his legal responsibility.

    ''They say'' - wonderful statement of fact right there. Quality.

    Regardless of whom may want an abortion, if it's illegal to have one then it's illegal to have one. This impacts both the mother and the father.

    Lol I was just thinking the exact same thing.

    What's actually remarkable is how otherwise incredibly intelligent women completely lose their sense of logic in a debate about that sort of scenario.

    A bit like "We reserve the right to terminate if we don't want the baby regardless of whether the father does but if we do he better want it too or else"

    He isnt physically carrying it in his body though. You are in favour of forcing a woman to abort?

    Do they not think abortion is a right?

    And it allows the child to live, did you know a black baby in New York is more likely to be aborted than being born

    It would be the most equal possibility, personally I would prefer to let the father walk away from all rights and responsibilities rather than punishing them for a decision they have no control over, that's why I said abort his legal responsibility

    Maybe they should think of that before getting their penis out. That is where they should exercise control. Why punish the child an instead behave like an adult and take responsibility. Most people know how babies are created when engaging in sex.

    Maybe the mother should think as well.
    Why don't women exercise control?
    Why kill a child instead of behaving like an adult?

    What you have posted is pretty much a prolife argument as well

    Does the vagina and adjacent bits and bobs have no responsibility in procreation?

    No. happy enough with a womans right to choose. She carries it and she will almost certainly be the one looking after it.

    That the group who claims to be for equality would not support making this area equal

    Never said they didnt. he was talking about allowing a man to abrogate responsibility. the woman is naturally going to have this in most cases throughout the childs life when she raises it.

    But using your logic, surely she knows she might get pregnant before she has sex?

    "Maybe they should think of that before getting their penis out. That is where they should exercise control. Why punish the child an instead behave like an adult and take responsibility. Most people know how babies are created when engaging in sex."

    So using your logic, women should think before having sex? After all, women should know how babies are created.
