If a man, and a woman agree to consensual sex, and she gets pregnant, why, when the child is equally the mans, does he not get equal protection under the law, lets keep it scientific shall we, leave your emotion next to the tissues. WHY DOES HE NOT RECEIVE EQUAL RIGHTS

Because the child is not inside the man's body.

What "equal rights / protection" for the man are you referring to?

- Is a mans body impacted by the pregnancy?
- Is the man going to step up and share equal costs during after the pregnancy?

Not a left. my response is as an Independent.

Because pregnancy is not inherently equal and the man is not the one getting pregnant and providing his body for the sustenance and benefit of the unborn, while enduring possible pregnancy related issues and complications. But when the man does get pregnant, he'll have the exact same "rights" as the woman. Assuming she still has rights depending on the state. BTW, consenting to sex is not the same as consenting to be pregnant.

Because a man impregnated her over the course of several minutes, and the woman has to carry the baby inside her for9 months, then raise it for the rest of its life.

Duh

You're free to carry the product of that consensual sex and you will share the same rights as the mother.

Haven't we done this already in several other threads?

And you're new here...perhaps look around and see how this conversation has been had numerous times?

Because being pregnant is different from impregnating.

Are you saying the man should have an equal voice? As in the man could pressure her to have an abortion and he has as much to say about it as her if she wants to have the child?
What a repugnant suggestion.

If you are a father, there is not much you can do before the baby is born. From a legal standpoint, you have no rights. While the baby is in the womb, the mother is the one who makes all of the decisions, and she doesn’t have to let the father know of her choices. She doesn’t even have to let him know that she is pregnant.
By a ruling of the Supreme Court, the father cannot stop the mother from aborting her unborn child. The mother also does not have to notify the father to tell him about her decision to terminate the pregnancy.

In more and more states in the USA, The Mother is having some of those decisions made for her.

What exactly is the “correct answer” you’re looking for?

Seems to me it’s been answered quite perfectly. By many.

WHY DOES HE NOT RECEIVE EQUAL RIGHTS
Because he doesn't have a uterus.

Pretty straightforward stuff there.

The person with the uterus gets to decide if they want to grow a couple of cells into a human being inside that uterus inside their body (and face all the risks that come with growing a human being from a few cells)

I suggest that if men want the equal ability and therefore equal rights in this matter, they support the scientific community in their quest to develop an artificial womb.

If he wants to gestate the fetus himself, I am all in favor of his right to do that.

A point worthy of discussion when a man bears the same responsibility of bringing up the child including financially, emotionally and physically...50/50

You folks know how it is on discussion forums, every once in a while you get treated to a monumentally stupid question and then challenged to answer it because the question is just meant as a "baiting" question. Otherwise known as a loaded question.

The really funny part of this is, that the person asking the question THINKS we don't know we are being baited, and then when people don't answer his question, whines and moans because he couldn't sucker the rest of us in.

THIS QUESTION is one of those.
