Scenerio: You got pregnant and your partner asked to keep it. You dont want to because youre not ready for the responsibility thus you decide to abort it. Your partner begs to keep it and promises that he will raise it as a single dad once the child is born, will you still abort it?

The guy should have a say insofar as he should be able to literally speak to the woman, unless other circumstances make that a bad idea. But in the end it's purely the woman's choice.

The man is entitled to have a say in it but ultimately it's the woman's final choice; if she wants to listen to him that's up to her.

Ok, let's say men gave birth instead of women. Should women get a say in if their child should be killed before it is born or not?

No, imo. 0 say.
I could give an opinion and advice, but final decision should be entirely up to the woman.

Agree. It’s the woman’s choice ultimately, but the guy’s opinion should be listened to and considered by the woman especially if her reason isn’t related to pregnancy and childbirth but due to being unable to raise a child after birth and he wants to raise it himself (unless he raped her or was abusive in some way).

I think a lot of people don't realise that pregnancy itself can be an intense experience. I've never been pregnant but the thought of going through a whole nine months of pregnancy (going to lectures with a huge belly), giving birth (which looks traumatic) and then having to accept the permanent physical changes in appearance after having the baby (stretch marks, lose belly skin etc), it's a lot to deal with emotionally and physically if it wasn't something I wanted for myself.

So, long-story short, no. In that particular scenario, I would still go through with the abortion.

Yes abort it still, because he's not going through the trauma of pregnancy or childbirth. But you should have this conversation before even having sex.

As much as I really do hate those scenarios where a man would love to become a father and is willing to pay for everything and have full custody of the child but the woman decides to abort the baby as it's "inconvenient" for her, but ultimately it is the woman's decision. You can't force a woman to carry her baby. Even in countries such as El Salvador where abortion is illegal you often hear about how some women would throw themselves on moving cars to "abort" their baby.

Yes. He ain't the one who's pregnant, I am

The current laws around abortion and child support absolutely stink.

This is what should happen: Either the man has a say whether or not the female aborts or keeps his baby, and she cannot legally abort it without his permission ...OR, if a man goes on record as not wanting a baby and the woman is allowed to choose have it anyway, that man is now exempt from paying child support.

it seems very unfair the way things stand currently.

If it's not your uterus, it's not your choice. Should he be free to express his preference? Sure, but if the only opinion that matters is that of the person who's pregnant, and if they don't want to keep it then that's their call

As unfair as it is, I think the final choice should always lie with the woman. The man may well do a wonderful job of being a single dad and raise a very happy child but I am not wrecking my body for a baby I didn't want.

There is an impracticality and some unreasonableness in a father expecting formal rights in this situation. However for me they have some right to seek to influence.

You're suggesting that men should be able to use the law to force women to carry pregnancies for them? Good golly, man, that's horrendous.
