Can we ignore all the jargon about people so much as considering an abortion being evil, slutty, whores who are totally going to hell for a moment to ask a serious question? My boyfriend is not quite the talker I am, but I love the intelligent conversations I can have with him. We’ve discussed the concept of adoption, abortion or carrying a pregnancy to term, to which he proposed a unique idea: men should be involved in the discussion – even the decision to abort. To clarify, the man who supplied the sperm should have a say (if he wants) in what happens. I can see this exploding into a lot of different issues. For example, what if a woman is pregnant by one man but married to another. Does he partner get no say? More importantly, in any situation, how much weight should the man’s voice carry, considering the fact his body is not the one affected by the decision?
To be clear, I am NOT asking if any of these options should be made into law. I’m not discussion law at all here. Think of this as more of a moral question.
