Men and Responsibility

Well, did you all hear about the lawsuit filed by a man who thinks he ought not to have any responsibility for the child he fathered against his will? Seems he wants a male version of Roe vs. Wade.

Sorry, pal. If you have enough responsibility to engage in flagrante delicto (which has been known to result in pregnancy for the female partner), you will have to belly up to the bassinette and support your children. While I sympathize with many men who WANT to be fathers when they learn that a woman can abort the child without his permission, I don't like the idea of a man insisting on an abortion either. It's all about responsibility..and BOTH are responsible for the new life created.

I've got a better idea for this fellow. Maybe he ought to consider sterilization if he's not able to control his libido.

Just when you think it can't possibly get any worse . . .

Amen. It really is illustrative of how narcissistic our culture has become.
