    I understand the guy's grief, but why didn't you go through an actual institution for this? If it wasn't for laws like this, how could you go after anyone for child support. You could claim that any time you impregnate a woman it was a "donation." Usually, sex acts only involved two people so it'd be one person's word against another.
    right but that same impregnated woman has a wide array of options that allow her to avoid any financial responsibility for the child, while the male accomplice is bound by whatever decision she makes. I thin men should have 90 days from the time they are formally informed that they have impregnated a woman to have a "male abortion" or later to have a "father's adoption option." In the abortion case the father would have to give the mother the going rate for an abortion and then he'd be in the same financial situation any woman can chose to be in when she doesn't want the baby. In the father's adoption option he'd have to go through the process a mother would go through to give the baby up for adoption, even if only to have the mother adopt.

    Fair's fair, right?

    Cost? Pretty sure those "institutions" charge.

    The laws concerning child custody and child support are so ridiculously messed up and unfair to men. Something's got to give.
    this is not the same as what happened in Kansas.

    No, in Kansas a man gave a couple a sperm sample and signed a paper saying he wasn't going to have anything to do with the child. Your point?
