The woman wouldn't even be pregnant if she didn't haveintercourse with a man. That is why I think they should talk about the situation of if she gets pregnant before having intercourse.
I never really understood one night stands, anyway. Of course people can do whatever they want, but from my point of view, you can still have a good time without having intercourse (especially for girls who can't orgasm from intercourse).
of course you're not going to mention getting pregnant on a one night stand; that would kill the mood.
but for the people who wait until they're in a relationship with someone, they should at least know their views on abortion.
In my opinion, I think it's the guy's fault for not bringing it up. if he doesn't bring it up, he shouldn't get any say at all.
but if he brings it up and the girl lies, well, there's still nothing that can be done legally.
what are you gonna do? make people sign contracts before having intercourse saying that they both think abortion is wrong and if the woman gets an abortion she gets legally punished for it?
so, guys, if you would not want a woman aborting your baby, get with a girl who has the same views as you, and wait until you can trust her before having intercourse
(of course, from a stereotypical standpoint, guys are usually the ones that want the sex more and don't want to wait long for it, so it's sort of stupid if they rush into it before knowing the woman's views and then say they want to keep the baby)
I agree wth Céadóg. It's morally wrong to me, but it would be unfair to make it a legal thing, because it's hard to prove and people can lie.
Are you talking about Savita Halappanavar when you refer to "the woman" in this post? This woman who you seem to have clear regard for has died due to completely preventable circumstances in a so called modern, developed country. She was married to her husband Praveen and they were going to have their first child together. I'm assuming it was very much planned and they were as happy as could be until this fiasco came about.
If you are talking about women in general, how awkward and problematic would it be to discuss pregnancy every time you decided to have sex? Yes there's no form of contraception that is 100% effective and there's always a slight risk, but to see sex as a risky thing rather than something wonderful and pleasurable is to taint the entire experience. Of course you're not going to have an orgasm if you worry about the possibility of pregnancy the entire time!
And of course there should be legislation on this issue. The legal grey area that exists in Irish law at the moment is the very reason this woman is dead!
Anyway, there was a march for Savita and for action on the abortion issue in Dublin tonight, as well as vigils in towns and cities across Ireland and the world. Over 10,000 people came to the march tonight, incredible turnout and atmosphere.
