A man's right to abortion

Rising Hegemon: Bobo's World -- the Dark Underbelly: "For some men, she (Pat Brown, a criminal profiler based in Minneapolis) said, the situation boils down to one set of unadorned facts: 'If the woman doesn't want the baby, she can get an abortion. If the guy doesn't want it, he can't do a damn thing about it. He is stuck with a child for the rest of his life, he is stuck with child support for the rest of his life, and he's stuck with that woman for the rest of his life."

This entry deals with the horror of pregnant women being murdered, usually by the unwilling fathers-to-be. I don't mean to diminsh this, but I think the above quote hits it right on the head; if men had the same right to avoid unwanted parenthood as women do, these violent murdeous acts probably would happen a lot less.
