Curious - Do those of you who vehemently oppose abortion under nearly all circumstances also support laws that would demand more of fathers?
Adding to this, the same must be asked about expectant mothers getting government assistance to support themselves: free access to contraceptives in the first place, and then free access to State-subsidized healthcare (consultations, medication, dietary supplements), paid maternity and paternity leave, welfare support, whatever's needed.
Well........not my fight, but I would think this is a no-brainer slam dunk. That would be a moral position and the moral position (again, imo) is all on the pro-life side as I said earlier.
I think that this would be true if Republicans were actually "pro-Life" (i.e. supportive of common sense gun control, universal healthcare, greater access to quality education, and protections for the environment), not just "pro-Birth." There is no morality in forcing a woman to do something she isn't ready and/or capable of doing, and then providing her no assistance with the task.
How about a law which states that the only place where a man can legally ejaculate is inside a woman's vagina? I wonder how the tables would turn if a man's right to privacy and autonomy were threatened.
In Italy, fathers are obliged to recognize the paternity of the child (if they refuse and there's a clue they might be the father, they are obliged to get the DNA test. Refusing to take the test allows the court to declare the paternity), and this means full support for the baby (financially but even morally / taking care of him/her and so on). Children born outside a marriage have the exact same rights as the others.
American law doesn't really differ in this way, but I'm wondering how this would factor into cases of rape?
Under these laws being passed, a woman having an abortion after a rape would be punished more severely than the man who raped her. I hope you at least take issue with this? I mean, how can you deny that that isn't misogyny at its deepest?
You really are a fucking imbecile. A man goes to jail if proven to have raped someone and you're saying motherhood is more of a punishment than that.
