I don't think a man should be allowed to force the woman to do anything, but I think that there should be at least some form of discussion. The way you worded it made it seem like 'discussion' was not really a discussion, but that the man was making the decision.Rudolph Quin said:So, what you're saying is, if we give a man a choice about abortion for a child that is his, it doesn't matter what he says because the woman will always do whatever the hell she wants either way? That was my question in the OP. How much of a say does a man get if he gets one at all?
Medical science may be at a point right now where this situation is 'keep or abort' but I think, in the future, if there was a less invasive way for something like a surrogate mother (or in the future father(?)) to take a pre-fetal child on without requiring major surgery (far way off, if ever possible) I'd imagine that in that future, the man could have some say.
As it stands today, I can't imagine forcing an unwanting mother to carry a child to term would be good for her, or the baby.
