A woman has a choice. And she can make the dad pay/support the child until they are 18 yoa (216 months). She can even do it through (our tax payers money) court system if she chooses. I wonder why a dad can't insist that she give only 9 short months of her life for the same purpose.
Exactly. If an unmarried mom can say to the father of her baby, "I don't care if you don't want a child. I do and I'm having it. And you are responsible for paying child support until the child is an adult", why can't an unmarried dad say the same thing?

I think a dad should be able to insist she birth the baby as long as he's willing to take full custody after birth. If she agreed to the unprotected sex, she agreed to the possibility of a baby being conceived. However, if the dad isn't willing to take full custody, then he loses his right to insist on anything.

Of course, a little common sense before conception goes a long way towards avoiding this whole situation.

Both great points, County Mike & Dethbob.
