    Default Why do Fathers Have to Pay Child Support?

    The consequences of a man's OWN action of having coitus sex is the need for an abortion. He is certainly at least 50% responsible for the costs of same, IMO. But any liability beyond that aren't consequences of *HIS* action they're consequences of *HER* (in)action. Legally, one intends the reasonably foreseeable consequences of his own action. If I negligently hit someone with a car, my liability is not absolved should the victim's treating doctor also act negligently such negligence is reasonably foreseeable.

    A victim of a tort, however, does have a duty to mitigate damages. Unlike the unconscious victim of an automobile accident, whose only choice is to lay there and get treated by whatever quack might happen along, a woman exercises a free choice over whether the damages are small (cost of an abortion) or whether they are huge (18+ years of child support). Her failure to mitigate the damages cannot be assigned to HIS "tortious" behavior, only the damages which would USUALLY flow from an unexpected conception by unmarried adults the cost of an abortion.

    They have to pay support because the child deserves support from both parents.

    Men have several choices. They can either choose not to have sex until they are ready to accept the fact that the act of sexual intercourse results could possibly result in a child, or they can wear condoms.

    Abortion is not an option available to the man. Never has been, never will be. Abortion is not simply an "expense" to the mother that she should seek reimbursement for. It's a medical procedure with risks. And, for many women, it carries "emotional baggage"....and therefore, is a very personal decision, for the woman only.

    Does not the woman having the child create emotional baggage for the man? Since the man has to give a pound of flesh each month to support that which he wants not?

    Since abortion is not an option for the man shouldn't the man be allowed to have a legal abortion that which makes the child none of his concern?

    I fail to understand why you think the child deserves anything from an individual that does not want it? Just because they are alive they deserve something simply because it was the fault of two individuals with conflicting views?

    If I choose to create more life by leaving the dishes in the sink unwashed does the penacillin deserve anything? Sure the penacillin has the potential to do wonderful things but does this mean it deserves anything?

    She refused to have an abortion due to religious reasons, which I find unacceptable. Religion and anything else that falls into the realm of the paranormal is bunk and should not be even considered. She should have not lied to me about taking the pill to trap me, I should not have been so shallow to be the bed buddy simply because of physical attraction and she should have looked past her rediculous, unproven, unscientific beliefs and had an abortion.

    Why do fathers have to pay child support?

    Bottom line; because the law says so. You want the law to say differently, try your (expletive deleted) arguments on your elected representatives and see if you can convince them to change it.

    Following your logic if Abortion is the woman's option, remember it is MURDER, the taking of an innocent life in many eyes, then perhaps the man should consider castration? If he eventually wants children there is always a sperm bank.

    How is it murder? Its preventing a collection of cells from growing into an individual.

    It is not yet a conscious human being and it is a part of the woman's body. If anything it could be considered a parasite, would you consider removing a tape worm murder?

    Why should the man even consider castration? Make it simple, have a man be able to legally order an abortion or cut off all ties if the woman refuses the abortion.

    Using the logic of calling it murder because it is preventing a possible human being from existing, wouldn't it be far worse for a man to become castrated which would eliminate billions of possible individuals?

    But for those who may be interested in castrating themselves just for the fun of it take a look at this site. http://www.vhemt.org/
