Alito thinks the Same Thing

I have been away for a while due to inconsistencies with my internet access, and for that I do apologize.

Judge Alito was forced to defend his 1991 decision for believing that a man should have the right to decide if a his child should be aborted. It's interesting to me because I was having the same thoughts a few days ago before this issue with Alito emerged.

I find it disturbing that a man cannot decide if his child will be aborted, but if the woman keeps the child he could be forced to pay child support. This inconsistency says to me that the woman is not entirely responsible for the life of the child as our liberal friends have made it seem. In North Carolina, child support is about 367 dollars a month. That's not much considering the challenges of raising a child, but it only shows that our government policy indicates that the man, too, is responsible.

That said, I think that it's necessary for the father to be granted the same ability to be responsible in the case of abortions. There is no reason for a wife to be able to make an automonous decision about a child that belongs to both her and her husband. And I'd even go as far as to say that an unmarried man deserves that right as well. One songwriter puts it this way: "It takes two to make a thing go right, It takes two to put it out of sight." There's a bit of validity in that.

Umm.. its not your body.

Kinda sick that men even feel the need to comment on the subject. Even further.. only men will decide the subject.

Parklife, welcome!

It's not my body, but it would be my child. Please don't allow emotion to interfere with reason. Understand my argument, and then comment.

Thank you for welcoming me. Always good to be welcome. But, judgeing from your next comments, I don’t think I'm that welcome.

"Understand my argument, and then comment." Umm.. You don’t like abortion. So you’re digging for something that’s not there.

In your original post you said, “There is no reason for a wife to be able to make an automonous (autonomous?) decision…” Well, I think there is a very good reason. It is her body. She can do with it as she pleases. It is insane to imagine what kind of Pandora’s box would be opened if husbands / boyfriends could order their significant other around like that.

I don’t want my government forcing people to have kids. Women have the right to their bodies. I just wish men would learn to keep their hands off.

As far as your “It takes two” analogy, a bit out of context. But, good luck with that.

Parklife, please don't mistake my directness for rudeness. You're welcome here.

I appreciate your elaboration on the comments you made before. You said: "I just wish men would learn to keep their hands off." In the case of child-making the woman is typically just as involved as the man (except in the case of rape which constitutes about 1% of abortions in America).

If women want autonomy regarding the life of their unborn child, then men should have the choice of rather or not they will pay child support in the cases where such is warranted.

So.. you dont want men to pay childs support either?

"I find it disturbing that a man cannot decide if his child will be aborted, but if the woman keeps the child he could be forced to pay child support."

So.. you think men should be able to force abortions on women?

PL,

I'm not saying that a man should be able to force a woman to have an abortion, but the man really has no legal protection in the process at all.

 
At 7:45 PM, Blogger Parklife said...

So.. you think men should have the option of paying child support?

 
At 8:13 PM, Blogger William said...

Here's what I think. I think that it should take both parents to abort a child (except in special cases), and only one to keep the child (mother or father).

I think that if the father is not allowed to have a decision over the abortion of a child, then he should not be forced to pay child support.

Part of the problem is that women are not under the control of men or the government.

I dont think we could be farther appart on this topic.

If we as men are given responsibility by the courts, we should have equal justice before them. If I am part of the "problem", I want to be part of the solution. I have a major problem with dead bat dads and moms.

Oh and William glad to see you back! Parklife is part of an Air America spam blog, seminar series of posts, not worth paying attention to. They invaded my site as well, ignore them, they are Deaniacs, highly motivated socialists bent on destroying our freedoms in the name of our secular god, government.

Goat,

Thanks for the comment. I'm glad to be back involved too. My internet is still REALLY slow, but it'll have to do. I'm connecting at less than half the speed of normal dial-up. Gotta love it. :(

Hey Parklife, it's not your body being disected and destroyed either.

I'm not an absolutists (defend saving a woman's physical health and in any case of rape/incest)......But nothing is sicker than women using abortion as birth control.

And 45,000,000 in 30 years is a holocaust!!!

And, you will find William is a very gracious host........You will be very welcome here.

Of course, not all of us are as gracious visitors.

Good to have you back William......I was starting to worry about you.

Pero

Thank you for the comments. And, yes, I am back. I am just going to have to be more strategic about my online time.

PP - are those little jets flying in the background?

More PP - "Of course, not all of us are as gracious visitors."

oh no!!

To correct an oversite ,Alito's dissent indicated that notification is in order not an ability to override the wife's decision, only that he should be notified. The man holds no veto.

Thank you all for you comments.
