I agree on the dad should not have to pay child support if he don't want a child.

But, if the mom don't want it, she should be able to abort no matter what the dad says. She is putting her health in danger and she will go through great suffering to deliver this baby + the 9 months of child pregnancy and the lost of income.

tl;dr: woman should be the one to decide if they want an abortion or not, but they should not be able force the father to pay them child support
User avatar #352 - psykobear (11/08/2013) [-]
To be fair, if she wasn't prepared for the experience of childbirth, she shouldn't have been having unprotected sex.
If the father wants the child, the woman should be forced to have it, but the father would have to pay her medical bills, including morphine and shit to dope her up during, and pay for the possible need for elective plastic surgery on the mother afterwards.
User avatar #467 - perfectmoment (11/08/2013) [-]
but what about the actual 9 months of pregnancy? If the mother didn't have a steady career she would likely have to quit her job, quite a few months of feeling sick and vomiting, having to buy maternal clothes, possible complications, etc.
Also what about the mental torment of having to carry around a baby for 9 months that she absolutely doesn't want.
Or if she was raped, if "the father wanting the baby" became our standard, the man who abused her could still force the victim to keep his child.
User avatar #497 - psykobear (11/08/2013) [-]
The rape case, fuck what he wants.
The rest, it does suck. But she did have sex. She knew the consequences. Just to avoid carrying the child, she can take away a man's right to his child?
User avatar #555 - perfectmoment (11/08/2013) [-]
i totally understand where you're coming from.
i just feel that if I got pregnant by accident, through my own fault or a faulty condom or whatever, and the father wanted it, it would likely be a horrific 9 months. Could you imagine carrying around a living thing inside of you that you didn't want, and having to let people come up and touch your stomach, talk to them about the baby, whether it's a boy or girl. It would just fucking suck.
User avatar #304 - commontroll (11/08/2013) [-]
The only thing is, that's disqualifying the man completely from his say. That is not equality. Too many men have been robbed of their children in that way. If she doesn't want it, boo-fuckin'-hoo, that's how it's been for men for decades now, only for 18 years.
User avatar #359 - trivdiego (11/08/2013) [-]
its definitely no easy answer thats for sure. the best thing I can contribute is if a woman had sex and got pregnant unwillingly, then the couple isn't responsible enough to care for a child anyway. I think eventually we will be able to remove all of the danger and pain from childbirth, at which point this problem will resolve itself
User avatar #274 - EnemySpy (11/08/2013) [-]
I respectfully disagree, at least in certain scenarios. If the child is a legitimate life-threatening condition, then I think medical action should me taken in protection of the mother. But when the pregnancy seems just about normal, why shouldn't the father get a say? The 20 or so prospected years of raising that child and then however long afterwards of having that child exist, along with all sentimental values of passing on genes and making a mark on the world or whatever, seem to far surpass the significance of 9 months of pregnancy. To be fair I'm a man so I haven't ever been pregnant, but I still don't think I'd sacrifice the life of a human being - my child, specifically - to avoid the experience.

And before I get the "ur a man u dont understand" argument from anyone, I must first ask any potential repliers, have you been pregnant and given birth to know better?
User avatar #306 - RoflcopterGoSwoosh (11/08/2013) [-]
Why should anybody get to decide whether or not you have to go through 9 months of carrying and baby and give birth to it if you don't want it? How does that even make any sense to you.
User avatar #313 - EnemySpy (11/08/2013) [-]
Because under normal circumstances (cases of rape or medical issues excluded) the situation was created by myself and another individual that I either cared enough for or was irresponsible enough to have sex with. It's not like the condition of pregnancy was /forced/ on me (again, excluding special cases). It's not like a random mishap in need of correction. Refusing a 9 month space in my uterus for the life of a human being that will last literally a lifetime and be taken care of by someone other than myself just seems selfish to me, especially when I made decisions leading up to the condition of pregnancy. Just my opinion.
User avatar #316 - RoflcopterGoSwoosh (11/08/2013) [-]
Selfish or not, you still shouldn't be given a right to decide whether or not someone else should have a baby, regardless of who you are and how close you are to that person. The final decision is always to the person who is going to be baring the child.
User avatar #319 - EnemySpy (11/08/2013) [-]
Your entire comment doesn't really explain anything. You're just not making a claim, and not explaining why it should be the way you describe.

So, uh, why?
User avatar #322 - RoflcopterGoSwoosh (11/08/2013) [-]
Because it is your body, so you should have total power over everyone's decision? You can't force someone to have a baby. That is what is wrong with it.
User avatar #372 - psykobear (11/08/2013) [-]
Just saying:

If you commit a crime, you are forced into prison, where your body, and sometimes mind, are affected. They warn you that this may happen before you commit the crime, but you do it anyways, and have to live with the consequences.
Ideally, If you (the average woman) have unprotected sex and get pregnant and if the father wants the child and you don't, you should be forced to have the child, where you might gain a bit of weight and experience some pain, which can easily be fought with meds. They warn you that unprotected sex may lead to a child before you commit the act, but you do it anyways, and must live with the consequences.

But, this is simply how I believe it should be.
#575 - ennemi (11/08/2013) [-]
I have a hard time seeing how this is fair, because at the end of the day, if the guy want the baby he could force the mom to keep it even if she don't want to and if he don't want the baby he could just walk away.

Also I don't like your crime analogy, both party are involve, but only one will suffer. A human should be the only one to decide what happen to his body. You basically want to remove the right of self-ownership of someone.

(also, it doesn't matter, but for the sake of full disclosure I'm a guy (and English is not my first language) )
User avatar #576 - psykobear (11/08/2013) [-]
I see that it is unfair, but either way it is unfair, whichever rule it is.
#579 - ennemi (11/08/2013) [-]
indeed, after that it's a matter of which you find more important : the right for the guy to be a father or the right of self-ownership of the mother.


Personally I think the second one is more important,, but I can easily understand if someone would put number 1 in priority,
User avatar #328 - EnemySpy (11/08/2013) [-]
It seems rather shortsighted to me to decide to rid the world of a future human being because it causes you a physical inconvenience for a year. To be fair, pregnancy is a pretty severe "inconvenience", but still. Give the child up for adoption. What you do with your body no longer only affects you. Sorry, but now there's a father and a son/daughter involved because of the choices you made, and it isn't right (again, in my opinion) to have total power in the decision that affects more than just you, because it seems like that 9 month pregnancy pales in comparison to every other way that child will affect you and the world.

You can't force someone to have a baby? Well, I don't mean to sound bad, but that's kind of what laws against abortions are for. Some laws protecting a father's claim to a child would be nice too.
User avatar #337 - RoflcopterGoSwoosh (11/08/2013) [-]
And there is a reason why those laws are being removed, because they are retarded and the person carrying the baby should be entitled to abort the baby regardless of someone wanting the baby.
#552 - danzey (11/08/2013) [-]
So, supposing you're female, just because it's inside you, you have the right to deny me my child, just because you don't want it. You're basically saying that women have the right to deny men children, you flip those two genders in any sentence and everyon goes fucking mental "Men have the right to deny women" thats a sentence that would get you stoned to death. If you're having unprotected sex, you run the risk of a child, and if I want to keep it, you take responsibility for your actions, we live in a society now where anything sex related has the man taking 100% responsibilty and women taking 0%, because women are these frail things that don't make their own choices, fucking double standards, women want to be paid the same to do less, they want men to pay their way through everything, then when it comes to responsibilities, lay it on the man, the scapegoat of the human race.
User avatar #349 - EnemySpy (11/08/2013) [-]
Your logic has turned circular you're starting to just repeat yourself. Again, why? All you've really said is that you should be in control of anything that affects your body. My argument is that the 9 months affecting your body is superficial in comparison to human life. I still fail to see how it's right to end that organism that is in the process of becoming a human being because the woman that started it all doesn't want to deal with the 9 month consequence of her own actions. I know this will earn me a hail of red thumbs for disagreeing with the Funnyjunk masses, but I value the life of an unborn child over a woman's 9 month trials.
User avatar #479 - perfectmoment (11/08/2013) [-]
i have not had a baby myself, but I'm just wondering what it would feel like to have to carry a living thing inside of you for 9 months that you didn't want.
I feel like if we forced a woman to have a baby that she didn't want, she would go to drastic measures to not have it as opposed to an abortion done by a doctor (mass amounts of drinking, drugs, smoking, self abortions). Wouldn't we then end up with a lot more babies with mental and physical disabilities, a lot more deaths caused by women trying to abort the baby themselves?
#557 - danzey (11/08/2013) [-]
That's a pretty stupid argument, and let's just keep using the word forced, i like that word, it implies a victim, by having an abortion while the man wants the baby, the woman is forcing the man to give up his child, his blood, just because she can't be bothered, sure she will have unprotected sex with him, but when there is a responsibility involved, pfft fuck that and fuck the man, ill just get an abortion, imagine if men held the keys, we are all aware of the ridiculousness of some of the feminism, imagine if men decided whether or not the baby was kept, yeah just think about it for a second ... you know it would be a different kettle of fish, why? Because men and women aren't equal, its about time people realised that. Women shouldnt get paid as much for physical labour, because men, with are larger muscle mass on average, are better equipped to do it, thats just a fact, it stems from men being the hunters and is just a fact that people have to deal with, the only reason it's a problem is because some people can't deal with the negatives about themselves.
User avatar #566 - perfectmoment (11/08/2013) [-]
there is at least one, if not more opinions where the arguer literally stated, "if the father wants it, the woman should be forced to have the baby". I'm not implying her as a victim.
I was literally arguing against this point, saying that if a woman truly didn't want the baby she would be desperate and resort to worse things than what she can do now, which is an abortion.
No need to get all "men should be paid more" and "women aren't equal" on me. I was stating my opinion on what some thought would be a good idea.
User avatar #455 - johnnygoldmane (11/08/2013) [-]
Nah, I'd imagine a fair number of us agree with you. If we were talking something unforeseen, like a tumor, then it would be entirely the woman's decision what to do with her body. But, if this was a known possibility, then she essentially made that decision with another person, and both of them should have equal say, barring health risks.

You come from a middle-to-upper class family, don't you? You get financial aid based upon your parents if you're a dependent, and how much money you yourself make if you aren't. I am a dependent, and my parents get paid just enough to be deemed it not a high need of financial aid necessary by the federal government, however low enough where unless my other siblings get scholarships they won't be able to afford to go to college (I am the eldest sibling).
You're saying you get "the same help that every other American citizen gets" when you aren't, you are getting a LOT more help than a good amount of American citizens get, including myself. Determination is a good quality, and one that I certainly have, however it is unfortunately not enough in many cases in order to be successful. I took every opportunity that I got, yet I'm still struggling to even afford school supplies and books for my classes.
User avatar #125 - casval (11/09/2013) [-]
Actually, I come from a lower class family. It was determined that because I came from such an impoverished background that I would receive a higher pell grant than usual. If you don't get the full amount of aid possible, it means that your family was not in a situation of such financial need. In my family, we often had to worry about paying the electric bill on time, coming up with food money for the week, and other such necessities. Since your parents got paid "just enough" for you to not qualify for the full amount of aid possible, I'm going to assume these things were never an issue for your family. You can hem and haw at my higher financial aid all you want, but know that much of my money is/was spent on the necessities of living that my mother struggled to provide. It isn't like I get a free lump some of money to prance about with every semester.

You are actually awarded more money for school the poorer you are. This is because the federal government assumes (often incorrectly) that the parent is going to help with the child's school. Furthermore, you are allowed to borrow higher subsidized loans the further along in your education you are. As a senior, I am allowed to borrow the full amount.

And I do happen to know that ANY college student is allowed to take out a certain amount of fedreal stafford loans from the government.

I get enough loans to cover half of my tuition and no Pell Grant. I have to work 2 jobs, 1 full time, while being a full-time student to put myself through a state university. I don't have time for an internship (and paid ones are rare). So yes, you are lucky and most American citizens do not get the same opporunities
User avatar #98 - casval (11/07/2013) [-]
I'm not turning this into an argument over who gets more school money and who works harder. I'm just not. There are way too many factors to be calculated there than I care to go into, and I'm sure you are a hard-working and decent American. But if people don't get the same opportunities, its because they didn't take them when they had the chance. It's not luck. It's determination. How much financial aid you receive is dependent on how well-to-do your parents are, and how much money you make. Nothing more.

Anyone in this country (and I'm sure many others, but I won't pretend to understand how the college system works for those other countries) can go to college and be successful. Period. No amount of calling my personal hardships "lucky" will convince me otherwise. It just depends on how much you're willing to work for it, and how much you're willing to sacrifice.

I'm not saying she should have kept the animal alive and suffering. By no means am I saying that. But killing someone's pet before they have a chance to say goodbye is just wrong.

I agree with you, actually. Rather than force this suddenly upon the woman- he should've confronted her and really talked to her about it.

No you're a moron. She should be charged with either animal neglect or animal abuse since she KNEW her dog was suffering and badly with no way to fix it. Might not have been his dog but he did do the humane thing and put A SUFFERING ANIMAL out of its misery. She had known for weeks and it is assumed she was just going to let him pass in pain. That I find pathetic since even humans get painkillers when they are dieing and in pain. Hell if someone is even in pain the they get painkillers.

Give me on GOOD reason he shouldn't have done what he did. A bad reason includes the fact she owned the dog, not his call, ect ect. If I saw an animal hit by a car but was still alive and the vet said there was no chance they would live I would have them put down as well.

TLDR: Letting an animal suffer for no reason is animal cruelty. He made the right MORAL call as a piece of paper shouldn't give us control over another living things life. Sure to a certain degree but when they are suffering and in pain its your responsibility to end the pain. NOT prolong it until they die from what is causing the pain.
User avatar #59 - casval (11/07/2013) [-]
You want one reason? Because I can give you more. But here's one: it wasn't his dog. I'm not saying the dog should have been left to suffer. But this was the wrong way of handling this situation.

I don't think she'd let him anywhere near her dog if she knew what he was putting where.
#22 - oedad (11/07/2013) [-]
No he isn't he is saying it was HER dog she owned it legally she could press charges of animal abuse of this guy if she found out. What he is saying s you can do whatever you want with your own life or your dog;s life it was not the guys dog if he had his own dog he could shove firecrackers up its ass for all i care but i'm sure the local DA will have a different opinion.

Well she can technically be charged as well because thats animal cruelty if she knew he was in pain and did nothing about it.
User avatar #26 - tonydalion (11/07/2013) [-]
Fuck legalities. What is just is to make the animal suffer at the whim of the owner. What is right is to put it out of it's misery. I'll do the right thing every time, and I could care less what the law says. It's called morality, and I'm disheartened to see so many people don't have that.

Morality is something the world lacks, it's been locked away by documents and law.

I think half of it is based on hard work and the other is on luck. Even people who deserve to go to college and have all the qualities for it still might not get to go because of cost or whatever may have you. There's just as many lazy people who won't motivate themselves to get an education as there are people who will. I'm heading off to college soon (senior in high school right now) and while I'd love to have everything work out perfectly I doubt it will, but that's life. Sometimes you catch a break, sometimes you get screwed. Pic doesn't really fit but oh well.

Getting a Pell Grant and a shitload of federal loans does not count as doing it all by yourself. You had a TON of help, much more than you'll ever realize.
User avatar #50 - casval (11/07/2013) [-]
I had no more help than any other American citizen is offered when going to college. And I didn't get a "shitload" of federal loans. I got enough to cover my tuition and if I was lucky, my books. There are many other expenses involved with college than just tuition and books.
User avatar #54 - awildniglet (11/07/2013) [-]
I get enough loans to cover half of my tuition and no Pell Grant. I have to work 2 jobs, 1 full time, while being a full-time student to put myself through a state university. I don't have time for an internship (and paid ones are rare). So yes, you are lucky and most American citizens do not get the same opporunities
User avatar #98 - casval (11/07/2013) [-]
I'm not turning this into an argument over who gets more school money and who works harder. I'm just not. There are way too many factors to be calculated there than I care to go into, and I'm sure you are a hard-working and decent American. But if people don't get the same opportunities, its because they didn't take them when they had the chance. It's not luck. It's determination. How much financial aid you receive is dependent on how well-to-do your parents are, and how much money you make. Nothing more.

Anyone in this country (and I'm sure many others, but I won't pretend to understand how the college system works for those other countries) can go to college and be successful. Period. No amount of calling my personal hardships "lucky" will convince me otherwise. It just depends on how much you're willing to work for it, and how much you're willing to sacrifice.
User avatar #120 - awildniglet (11/08/2013) [-]
You come from a middle-to-upper class family, don't you? You get financial aid based upon your parents if you're a dependent, and how much money you yourself make if you aren't. I am a dependent, and my parents get paid just enough to be deemed it not a high need of financial aid necessary by the federal government, however low enough where unless my other siblings get scholarships they won't be able to afford to go to college (I am the eldest sibling).
You're saying you get "the same help that every other American citizen gets" when you aren't, you are getting a LOT more help than a good amount of American citizens get, including myself. Determination is a good quality, and one that I certainly have, however it is unfortunately not enough in many cases in order to be successful. I took every opportunity that I got, yet I'm still struggling to even afford school supplies and books for my classes.
User avatar #125 - casval (11/09/2013) [-]
Actually, I come from a lower class family. It was determined that because I came from such an impoverished background that I would receive a higher pell grant than usual. If you don't get the full amount of aid possible, it means that your family was not in a situation of such financial need. In my family, we often had to worry about paying the electric bill on time, coming up with food money for the week, and other such necessities. Since your parents got paid "just enough" for you to not qualify for the full amount of aid possible, I'm going to assume these things were never an issue for your family. You can hem and haw at my higher financial aid all you want, but know that much of my money is/was spent on the necessities of living that my mother struggled to provide. It isn't like I get a free lump some of money to prance about with every semester.

You are actually awarded more money for school the poorer you are. This is because the federal government assumes (often incorrectly) that the parent is going to help with the child's school. Furthermore, you are allowed to borrow higher subsidized loans the further along in your education you are. As a senior, I am allowed to borrow the full amount.

And I do happen to know that ANY college student is allowed to take out a certain amount of fedreal stafford loans from the government.
