@Nellygirl You're making the assumption that NCWTD had no say in whether she wanted that cock inside her with a condom or otherwise. The boyfriend chose not to wear the condom; the girlfriend chose to let him probe her. The focus is on the decisions after the sex has been had and the pregnancy. If NCWTD's choice happened to be that she wanted to keep the child against her boyfriend's wishes, she has unilaterally decided to have the child. He, at this point, has no say whatsoever. He HAS to pay child support because of her decision. They both decided to fuck, but why is she the only one to decide whether she's going to bring the baby to term?

So what I proposed was that if NCWTD made the choice to have the child, then the boyfriend, if he so pleases, should be able to choose whether or not to pay child support. He should be able to have a say.

I think that NCWTD is right when she says she has the right to an abortion because, yes, she has to deal with it all. If it were the other way around, where the boyfriend wanted an abortion but the girlfriend didn't, the boyfriend should then have the right to choose to pay child support or not. If an abortion is a choice that women can make, then child support is a choice that men can make.

just another case of the "I Only have eyes for you." As dan said, it is a song, not a sentiment.
