If two consenting adults want to have a child and the man decides he doesn't within the first trimester and the woman will not have an abortion should he have to pay child support. On the other hand if the woman doesn't want the child but the man still wants the child should she be allowed to have an abortion if he wants the child?

Exactly! All the pro-lifers should put their time, effort, and money into educating people on PREVENTION of pregnancies and provide all the necessary contraception choices free of charge. Pregnancies have to be judged individually after the fact.
Awesome answer! I would like to add that males could freeze their sperm and then get a vasectomy. That way they can 'change their minds later' if need be. It would be nice if women could do the same with their eggs. Maybe they could. Prevent ALL preg
Karen, Sometimes it's the man who wants the woman to go full-term and (she) chooses not to. Thus the question:
Should abortion be the woman's choice only?
True, but the case presented in the original question is about the man changing his mind to not wanting the pregnancy to continue. That is the question/situation I responded to. Each case is different.
The complete question also states: "On the other hand if the woman doesn't want the child but the man still wants the child should she be allowed to have an abortion if he wants the child?" Should abortion be the (woman's choice) only?
It sounds from this situation that the woman does want the child and the man wants the abortion. Yes, grandparents have rights to grandchildren, but are they willing to back up their rights with financial support for the child?
The disregard for human life begins when two people have sex without discussing the issues that could arise so that they could prevent the very situation presented by the person asking the question. Also, what are "grandparent's rights" exactly?
There are many useful resources on the topic of grandparent's rights, but this one could initially be helpful:
Unless the grandparent's hold full custody, I disagree with the concept of grandparents' rights. So much more is required to raise a happy, good child than visits or money and the abortion choice is only that of the parents.
Can't imagine that grandparents who would speak up for the child wouldn't want full custody. In the case I know personally the grandparents would have given everything to prevent it, but of course, they could not.
I understand that grandparents may want grandkids but many cannot take care of children properly and the choice is no one's but the parents. I find it sad that so many people do not think carefully before creating a child.
You are so right, it is sad--inexpressibly so, for children are precious gifts. More grand parents are able to take good care of children than one might think, but it's the willing ones that go uncredited. There are even resources available if ne
