This post is based off a conversation I had with a friend of mine several years ago, as well as having read the 'Deadbeat Dad' thread.
Boy meets girl. Boy buys girl drinks and dinner etc. Boy bangs girl, girl gets pregnant. Girl doesn't believe in abortion, so she has the kid and hits the guy up for child support. Guy has absolutely no say in anything past the point of blowing his wad (for the sake of argument we'll say she was on the pill and he was wearing a condom but he slipped one past the entire defensive line), but now he is not only liable for child support but he is now tied to a one night stand for at least 18 years. This is basically how our system works.
Now, let's look at the reverse. Same beginning, different middle. Girl believes in abortion, makes an appointment but tells the guy. Guy doesn't believe in abortion, wants the kid. Again, guy has no say past the point of blowing.
Kind of a catch-22 here, screwing the guy. Just curious on other people's thoughts on this topic. If the guy is liable for child support, then he should have some sort of say in the whole process, other than to just open his wallet once a month.
