Why is it when it comes to abortion it seems that all the normal rules dont apply? When a woman becomes pregnant the father of the child has no say so as to whether she will terminate or have the baby,but if she decides to give birth he is expected to help take care of the baby and if she decides to have an abortion he is expected to help pay for it, but if he is the one to suggest ending the pregnancy he is considered insensitive. I believe that abortion is an abomination to God and that it never should be considered unless the mother's life is at risk which is rare. When Scott Peterson was convicted of killing his pregnant wife he was also found guilty of killing his unborn child. How come its legal for women to decide to kill their babies and illegal for men to decide the same? The law should always consider the needless intentional killing of an unborn child murder .
