Everyone, even the feminist, must admit that it takes male and female to make a child. There are very few actual reasons that people have for aborting a fetus. You can "what if" this action to death but if we are all honest the major reasons are: (1) I just do not have time to raise this child without giving up things that I want to do. (2) I just don't want to look fat. (3) I will have to give up my lifestyle of partying. Not being able to drink and or take drugs is just too much to ask. (4) Being pregnant will hurt my chances of having or finding a man. (5) My man doesn't want any children. Perhaps it is better that a child never be born than to be raised by a parent that is so selfish. The truth is there are many men that would love to raise a child that they have conceived with a woman even though she is wishing to end the life of the fetus. Even the feminist can not say today that a woman makes a better or more neccessary parent for a child than a man. A non-sexist way to handle the matter of abortion would be that the only legal abortion would be one in which the man and woman sign off on the death of the fetus. If the man wishes to raise the child then perhaps the woman should be forced by law to finish the pregnancy. In which case the man would take charge of the child and the woman would have no claim on the child nor have any liability of child support. In a case where a woman wishes to have the child and the man wishes to abort it then she could have the child but the man would have no claim nor child support to pay. Man and woman have an equal responsibility for prevention. This is the only non-sexist way of handling a matter after all, women are just as intelligent as men and with so many birth control methods out, there is no reason why they can not also control the pregnancy. Many look at the fetus as a non-living thing. If it is a non living thing we still must admit that it took a man and woman together to create the fetus. If a man and a woman bought a house together the woman only owns half of it therefore she does not have the right to destroy it without the agreement from the other owner. To do so would be criminal and punishment would be placed on her. The woman could give or sell the man her half of the house if she does not want it or the man could give or sell her his share. I personally do not believe that abortion is the correct thing to do. I raised my two children and will love them forever. If you don't want children don't get pregnant.
