Should the man have a say in abortion?
Since it's the woman's body that has to have the operation, the man's opinion doesn't matter in many case.
I believe that the woman should take the mans opinion seriously and think about it. Other than that it is her body so she may do what she wants with it. That's what I believe anyways.
Theoretically, yes. That child partly belongs to them. However, in practical terms it is too risky to have women sacrifice autonomy over their bodies.
A man has a say before he has sex.
I believe that the dad,should be able to have part of the decision,the baby is part of both of them.
Just like a couple would talk over deciding to have a baby, an abortion should be done together.
Legally the man has a say but not a vote.
He's free to express his desires or opinion.
Some men would prefer the woman have the baby and she (chooses) to terminate the pregnancy. Some men prefer the woman to have an abortion and she (chooses) to go full term.
Only the woman can decide if a couple becomes parents or not.
Once the man plants the seed it's out of his hands.
No human being should be allowed to (force) another human being to do anything with their body.
'The man' deserves a say in your decision. The baby is as much his child as it is your own.
I think men can have a say, but agree that they shouldn't have a vote. Ultimately it's the woman's choice, as it is her body, her pain, and her ultimate responsibility (she will be expected to care for her child should the couple break up). More is expected from the woman and therefore she has more weight on the issue of abortion.
Of course he should have a say. He should have the right to be notified of the pregnancy, providing that he is possible to track down. There should be a conversation where he states his wishes and the amount of responsibility he is willing to take. He should have the right to draw up and sign a contract saying that he is willing to take sole custody and full financial responsibility for the child, or pay for the abortion procedure, or marry her and have more together, or whatever. However, since it is the woman risking her life, health, and ability to have future children either way, the final decision should rest with the woman alone.
Of course he has a say, but he can't decide. The reason why he has a say it's because the baby is his as well. But, the reason why he can't make a decision [even though at first it may seem like he can because it's his child] , it is because it's the woman's body. He can't do anything to her, he can't literally stop her from aborting, he can't control the action, or the way the woman is treating her body in order to grow the child or not.
The woman may ask him, may listen to him, may even agree with him, but in the end she is the one responsible for the baby while the baby is in her body. This one stands even for the woman who desires to create a family - she may ruin it all with the way she behaves or eats, if she smokes, etc.
