NO… It takes two to produce a baby so why should one gender have more rights then the other...Unfortunately; the law in this incident tends to favour women over men. A woman can decide to keep the baby even if the guy does not want to become a dad…A woman has the rights to have a abor-tion if she decides she doesn’t want a baby but the man has to take her to court if he wants HER to keep the bub.......A woman has the rights to make life difficult for the father, if he wants to see the child and some women will make up crap to get the court to agree. Most guys have to pay child support whilst some women refuse to find work, start new relationships and thinks it’s their lawful rights to milk as much financially support as she can to fund her and her boyfriend or new husband’s lifestyle….I think it is time the law recognise men are just capable as women when bringing up kids and should have more rights over the women…Men should be given full custodial rights as they are the main bread provider. Just because a woman carries a baby for nearly 9 months of a year, does not give her more rights over a guy.
As I see it the woman's investment in her pregnancy is much greater than the man's. The guy supplies some body fluid that he probably would have wasted anyway. The gal serves as a human incubator for up to 9 months then has to endure a painful delivery or major surgery.
The way I see it nobody should have the right to tell a woman she has to serve as a human incubator for 9 months for a child she doesn't want and nobody should be able to tell a man that he has to financially support a child he doesn't want. If a woman decides to have a child against the wishes of the father than the dad shouldn't have to pay.
The rights are not strictly equal because each parent's investment in the pregnancy is different.
No. But in the majority of cases the mother does most of the parenting. Even in two parent homes, men spend less time in child rearing activities. When that is no longer true, then men have a case. Until then, as long as women are doing the majority of the housework and the child rearing (in case you're wondering how they calculate that, people who do research measure it by counting amount of hours each parent spends doing things like bathing the kid, playing with the kid, feeding the kid, etc etc), they have more rights to the kids.
why should a mother have more rights just cus she gave birth... she couldnt have givin birth if it wasnt for the mans semen.. a child is a equal part of a relationship
my mom worked for the child support agency and last year 68% of the parents she was chasing were the absent moms.. obviously this will be different from country to country but no, a mother should not have more rights than the father.. i live in the uk and once both parents names are on the birth certificate it becomes a 50/50 thing and not a 75/25
In all honestly i do believe the mother needs more legal rights in many cases, but that doesnt mean that i dont believe the father shouldnt have any say in what happens. As far as ab*rtion goes i feel that in the end the mother should have the right to choose what she does. You have to look at the facts and statistics, men are more likely to run out on the child etc, do you think it would be fair for them to just show up years later and have the same rights as the mother who raised it.
I don't think so, it kind of goes on guys who don't want to have a child and their girl gets pregnant it isn't their body so therefore its not really theirs. It is both parents just so happens to be that the female is the one equipped to carry it to term and give birth. If it is a custody battle the parent with the most rights should be the parent that takes care of the child the best. Just because you give birth doesn't mean you are the best parent suited for the child.
well if the man was stuiped enough to..ya know..inside a girl KNOWING he doesnt want a kid then hell yes he should pay. id rather pay for my kid then having to give birth to it painfully or have a major surgery, so guys shut the heck up cuz you dont know hat youre talking about, you dont wanna pay cuz youre too immature and irresponsible to handle a child. just pay the woman, cuz basicly the guys are just a sperm donar.
Did you actually read what I said? We're not talking about case by case basis. Even in two parent homes where both parents are very involved with kids, the mother still spends the most time doing the parenting activities. That's just true of most homes. Yes, there are a minority of cases where the father spends more time, but it is an exception.
i feel that if both parents love the child equally and both want to take care of it, but only one is allowed to... i think the mother should get to keep it. if that makes anysense at all. i guess what im saying is if the father would be at all a better parent then they would get to keep it, but if its pretty equal, then the mother.
i dont think most men want to run away from their child its the mother they seem to be running from, and if the mother seems to be the one thats in control of the child because "she gave birth" then there isn't anything a dad can really do to counter that except legal action which in most cases they lose.
I think each case needs to be determined individually. I do believe there are some instances where, yes, the mother should have all the rights and the father none, and vice versa (such as in neglect or child abuse situations). There are too many factors involved to make a blatant decision about it.
i agree with raw216 i disagree with tha fact that mandyloo said that the fathers run away from there child... and yes alot of men do that but women also do it.... but the point is not all people run away. (i think when women get aborations its just like running away!)
I honstly think they both have equal rights. yes the Mother carried the child for 9-10 months but if it wasnt for the Father then the child wouldnt be here. Both parents love the child so why is it alot of people think the mother has more rights then the dad??
i dont think so. the child came from both parents and, i hate this term but for lack of better way to say it, "belongs" to both the mother and father. i believe that to raise a child, both parents need to actively participate in their lives.
i dissagre alot of dads are not like that at all it depends on the person my dad has always been an alcoholic but always in my life and quit drinking when i was 5 some dads are just immutre
Honestly no she doesnt. You both made the baby. Just cause you gave birth to the child doesnt mean anything. That child has both of ya'lls blood in them. You both have equal rights.
I know most guys aren't, I was using the few who are what they say as an example. I really only heard it on Jerry Springer. It works with what I said though.
But not all guys are like that
that sounds crazy
