Oh, the tangled web

I'm sitting here blogging and watching TV. ABC Nightly News just ran a piece about a guy who is suing (if I understand it right) his ex-girlfriend who told him after they broke up that she was pregnant. He's claiming his rights were violated because he's being asked for support for a child he didn't want. Newsflash buddy: don't want the kid? Zip it up and you could have solved that problem. No sympathy here. But the argument that "of course it's the woman's choice because it's 'her' body" just doesn't hold water either. And what about the baby? It's nice that mom wanted the little tyke, but dad's outright rejection is very sad--for him and the baby.

This lawsuit is being politically driven. I wrote about it on my blog a few days ago. Basically they are saying that if a woman has the right to choose (pro choice) then men should have the right to choose as well.
