Do Men have any rights?

The problem with our laws governing abortion and parental rights is that they rob a man of all authority over the fate of his unborn child but assign him fifty-percent of the responsibility for that child should the woman, exercising her total authority in the matter, decide to bring the child to term.

It’s for this reason that the National Center for Men intends to argue its case based on the equal protection clause of the Constitution. And it’s understandable. We live in a society that is obsessed with equality, and our government zealously enforces onerous regulations and mandates and imposes a radical-egalitarian model on all of us (i.e., Title IX dictates, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, etc.). Despite this, inequality is not only tolerated but prescribed when it redounds to the detriment of men and the benefit of women. And this is a perfect example: woman+conception+100% authority=50% responsibility. But what about man+conception+0% authority? Well, you won’t see this on the SATs, but the answer is still 50% responsibility. It’s amazing how placing a man in an equation completely alters the answer.

Your stepping on toes with this one, ablur. As a women, I’m probably not going to make any friends here either because I agree with you totally. I watched my brother go through a bitter divorce when his wife told him she had an abortion against his wishes. He found out months later he had a child when he was slapped with a child support order. He then spent the next 3 years and thousands of dollars just to have visitation rights with a daughter he loves. At the same time he was being court ordered to pay $850.00 per month child support for a child he wanted that was being denied to him for the first 3 years of her life.

The decision to create a child is equal, the law should be as well.

The inequality under the law needs to be addressed. I have been wondering this question for a long time. Women's right have trumped men on this issue. Men can't even have a discussion on the subject. They are often told it is not their place or none of their business. This case may change this view forever.

I don’t think this guy even thinks he has a chance of winning but I hope he does, ablur. The agenda of the secularists is to blur the roles of men and women. Not only have they managed to blur the line, they’ve now made women ‘more equal’ in some crazy Orwellian way.

It is wrong but it’s great to see that Americans are finally waking up and taking our country back.

Funny, I don’t think I’ll ever be confused with a feminist. :)
