It doesn't matter how many times you had sex, there's always a possibility of pregnancy! Have you never heard of 'wrap it before you tap it'?

Here's a novel idea: every time a life is created that we don't feel like being responsible for, let's shift the blame onto someone else and then murder that life. When two people create a vessel for God to place a soul into, we become responsible for that vessel as a team. no blame involved. unless you're an atheist, in which case why blame a woman for your virility and then bury the evidence? seems like a terrible way to fulfill your genetic imperative. so which will you be today? a sinner and a murderer, or genetically defective?
142 - Are you really saying religious people are perfect, they don't feel desires toward each other until they are married or other bullshit? Atheism or religion are not to blame for her getting pregnant, it was just two stupid people having sex. Not that caring for a life you created is a bad idea. People should take responsibility for their actions, but hinting that religion is good and atheism is "the devils religion" or some crap is just ignorant of other peoples beliefs On another note, good luck OP. your going to need it...
156 - The entire point of that rant was to state that whether you're religious or not, it's still wrong. I try really hard to cover all of my bases when I say something that could be misconstrued as me being a foot-washing Jesus Freak. Should have figured that by using the word "God" in my comment that i'd pretty much thrown that idea to the wind as a point of novelty. So there you have it 156, we're arguing pretty much the same point; albeit against each other.
142- Do NOT dictate one's decision simply because it goes against YOUR beliefs. Not everyone shares the same religious view, and their decision is none of your business. Besides, you don't know the entire situation, what if OP's girlfriend has some medical condition that renders her unable to carry the fetus full term? What if she has a medical condition that could create birthing complications and potentionally kill her?
All of you need to get a fucking sense of humor. Where the hell do you think you are? This is FML. This is the internet. Sure it wasn't a good joke, but that's no reason to go all tight-assed on us and have yourselves a damn religious / pro-life debate over a comment that could have been posted by a 12 year old. Now I consider myself very religious but there's a time and a place and FML is not it.
214 - it isn't my place to get into the whole rape debate: as a guy my opinion really doesn't pertain here. It would be like me giving my opinion on nomadism to a turtle. 171 - you obviously didn't read half of what i said. Try this: read what i said again, only this time hold your thumb in front of the word "God".
How about this, she gets the first 9 months to decide if she wants it, he gets the next 9 to decide if he does. If he doesn't, no strings attached, just post term abort it or be civilized and leave it with the mother. Why should she be the only one with any choices after conception, for all we know she poked holes in his condom and now essentially owns him for 2 decades.
Wow that's actually a really sad story 30, my friend had similar problems. The bitch mother dumped the baby at his front door and he has never heard from her again, it's been 5 years and the poor little blonde haired girl has never seen her mother. So it's not only men that are not cut out to be parents.
My father didn't want anything to do with me either; my mother raised me all by herself. It must have been really tough for her and for that she's a DIAMOND mother. I don't blame my father either; would much rather he had nothing to do with me than to have him walking in and out of my life and causing my mom hassle. Just my view.
107 - I agree & know just what you mean. My ex stayed in his daughters' lives by dragging us through the courts for years, making up lies to the judge, stealing them away from me repeatedly, cursing me out in front of them, neglecting them & leaving them in his house alone for years. He finally gave up when I found out his Dad was molesting them. They love their Dad, but their lives would have been better if he just abandoned them when we split up. I used to pray he would.
Unhappy yes, but cared for and thats what matters. My parents couldn't stand each other, but they ignored each other and helped raise the children, dysfunctional, with a heavy dose of ill concealed adultery, but no court battles, shouting matches or slum apartments. This is why I say men should get a grace period after birth to choose. Be a parent or never come back, no obligation. The mother got hers, why force the father to live with it?
The "father" has the same options that the "mother" has. He just has less time to make his decision. If he's not carrying the pregnancy in his uterus he does not get to decide whether it stays there or not. Once the sperm meets the egg he's obligated to look after the resulting child (as is the mother whether by having an abortion or by carrying it to term and adopting it or keeping it).
...You deserve to be burdened with a child for the rest of your life, and not only this but have your girlfriend notify you with an impersonal text message, all because you think it's quite unlikely that you'll get her pregnant the first time you have sex (with or without protection as this was never even mentioned)? A little over the top, dontcha think?
