#3. Women Have The Right To Choose Parenthood
Feminists claim that women do not have “equal rights”, yet continue to advocate for “special rights” without seeing the hypocrisy. Women have currently are entitled to three legal options to absolve themselves from their children, morally and financially. that they do not wish to take responsibility for.
1. Women may abort the child before it is born
2. Women may put the child up for adoption (without having to notify or identify the father)
3. Woman may leave the infant, in accordance to Safe Haven law to be wards of the state and walk away.
As a woman, I cannot be forced into parenthood, but I have all the legal power to force a man into providing financial support for my choice to keep the child. Depending on the state one lives, a man can be forced to pay for children, even in cases where they are not the biological father.
Although I may have personal reservations about whether changing these laws would help to make more fathers step up to the responsibility, I still believe that these laws work to undermine any argument for equality by allowing ‘special’ rights in place where women claim they have none.
