Its a woman's choice

A commenter nailed it (pardon the pun) with this:

It is simply undeniable that under current law concerning procreation, men have responsibilities and no rights; while women have rights and no responsibilities. Men have no choice, women have absolute choice.

I have often wondered at what a number of the commenters voiced; women have the choice to have sex, have an abortion, have the child or abandon the child while the man has the choice to have sex or not. Once a man has sex with a woman, he has no other choices or options under current law. He is completely at the mercy of the woman and the courts. Yes, I know they are few but there are actual cases of men being forced to pay child support for children that are genetically proven NOT to be theirs. Where is the justice in a system that allows this? Back in the 60s when women were fighting for the "right to choose" the argument was it was her body and she should be able to choose to carry to term or not. She has the "right" to choose. Well she can choose now but where is the man's rights? The man should have some sort of reciprocal right, should he not? A man can not force a woman to carry a child to term, why is it a woman can force a man to pay for the next 18 years?
