Men have no say in the matter if the woman has an abortion. Women can “trick” men into getting them pregant even when the man thinks they are having “safe sex.” I see no reason to legally saddle a man with child support for eighteen plus years due to what was probably a few minutes of consensual sex. Yes, I have ulterior motives. I think that if the law adopted my position it would encourage women to not have sex unless they were married. I think sex outside of marriage is immoral.
Do not give me this crap about how the “innocent children” will suffer if the man is not forced to provide for the child. The woman should have thought of that before she had sex. And yes, I said the woman should have thought about that. She is the one who chooses whether to bring a child into this world. The man has no say in the matter–even if he is married to her–in the current state of our laws.
An article today from the Flint Journal mentions a guy who has fathered fourteen children by fourteen different women out-of-wedlock. He owes $533,000 in unpaid child support. Now a judge is going to put him in jail for 90 days unless he comes up with over $27,000. Like that will happen. I have no sympathy for this dead-beat father. But I also have no sympathy for the ignorant immoral women who allowed him to father their children.
As Ann Coulter has rightfully pointed out in her new book, single mothers cause grave harm to our society by having children out-of-wedlock. I’m not talking about those single mothers who are divorced or widows. That is not their fault, and they need our support. I’m talking about single mothers who choose to have children out of wedlock. The children of single mothers are tremendously more likely to become criminals, to be raised in poverty, and to turn to drugs. It is time to stop encouraging women who have children out of wedlock. If this seems harsh, it is only because you have not considered the alternative–that by helping them collect money from the fathers and that by helping them with welfare and other government aid we are encouraging women to have more children out of wedlock. Think that is just me and my faulty logic?
ATLANTA – “Out-of-wedlock births in the United States have climbed to an all-time high, accounting for nearly four in 10 babies born last year, government health officials said Tuesday.
“While out-of-wedlock births have long been associated with teen mothers, the teen birth rate actually dropped last year to the lowest level on record. Instead, births among unwed mothers rose most dramatically among women in their 20s.
“Experts said the overall rise reflects the burgeoning number of people who are putting off marriage or living together without getting married. They said it also reflects the fact that having a child out of wedlock is more acceptable nowadays and not necessarily the source of shame it once was.”
STOP ENCOURAGING THEM. They want to have babies out of wedlock, make them and their families suffer the consequences. Sure, I would stop paying taxes and stop working and take whatever I wanted from you or anybody else. If you took away the negative consequences. It is time to reconsider our policies that are driving this plague [I know plague sounds harsh, but go to the nearest juvenile detention center–the vast majority were born out of wedlock] of children being borne out of wedlock:
“It never occurs to anyone to simply return to the original rule: Unless a man is married to a woman when she gives birth to his child, he has no rights to that child, and unless a woman is married to a man when she gives birth to his child, she has no right to his paycheck or his time.” — P.67 of Ann Coulter’s book “Guilty: Liberal ‘Victims’ and Their Assault on America”
