Based upon the female's biological, psychological/emotional, cultural investment of post conception: nine months of pregnancy, painful birthing, school/job disruption, years of nurturing (breastfeeding, changing diapers, sleepless nights, etc.) vs. the male's investment of a few minutes plus a cheap gob of sperm.
Please inform me about how males have acquired the right to dictate (pass laws/promote cultural norms) regarding a woman's choice to terminate an unwanted pregnancy?
Yes, as a former substitute teacher in the Indianapolis Public Schools, I have experienced the heartache of spending time with far too many unwanted children — children who are classroom disrupters, harder to educate, prone to join violent gangs and more likely to wind up in prison.
Please note, we live in a democracy, so please do not respond by citing your tribe's religious dogma as the guide for those of us who are not members of your tribe.
