Honey, May I have control over my own body?

Just a quick hit...
"An Ohio lawmaker has re-introduced legislation that would include a father's rights in the abortion decision-making process. Under Roe v. Wade, fathers are left out of the equation when a woman considers whether or not to have an abortion that would end the life of their child....
Adams told the Daily Reporter newspaper that abortion centers would "need to get consent from the biological father" before the abortion can proceed and he called the measure a "father's right bill" to protect the interest of fathers who are given no say in the abortion process.
He also said the bill provides for criminal penalties for women seeking abortions who do not obtain consent properly.
Adams told the newspaper that, in cases when the mother does not know the identity of the father, the abortion would be prohibited.
"There needs to be responsibility for actions," Adams said. "As someone who is pro-life, this is also an attempt and a hope to keep the two people who have created that child together, and I suppose if you just go back to the simple beginning, there is merit to chastity, and to young men and women waiting until marriage." "
I love the "PC" title of the article, "Ohio Bill Would Include Father's Rights in Abortion Decision-Making Process." In other words, the father has final say over whether there's an abortion or not, but is not held to any responsibilities in raising the child, whereas the woman is.
And you're screwed if you're raped while passed out drunk because you can't get an abortion unless you know who your rapist is, with severe fines for producing a false father.
Then Adams even says that the whole point is just to create happy little families, when reality, studies, and psychologists all say that children do not create a happy marriage. And the statistics on divorce largely pertain to the baby boomers rather than us 20-30 something's. I only know of two instances in my generation where divorce occurred, whereas of our parents' generation my parents are the only ones I know of who have never divorced.
I am hopped up on energy drinks and ranting. Check out Strollerderby for a more comprehensive critique.
