The Roe Men

Gates of Vienna blog has an interesting posts on male reproductive rights.

Essentially a man is asking to be relieved of child support payments since he was assured by his girlfriend she was unable to bear children and she understood his desire to not be a parent.

The case boils down to should men have the same right women have to select when they become a parent.

I always note this time for this decision is prior to the activity which creates offspring.

Responsibility is the key.

That being said frequently men are held hostage for 18 years as women who claim they are the father or otherwise entrap them.

While I agree that it is time to stop rewarding the women who deliberately become pregnant without the man's consent by deceit or otherwise defraud men by presenting dubious issue for child support, men should still bear responsibility for their actions.
