Abortion - Women are given 3 options under the current system, should an unwanted pregnancy occur. She can have the child, abort the child, or place the child for adoption. However, a man in such a situation, is left at the mercy of the woman's choice, regardless of his wants and desires. In a situation where he wants to keep the child, but the woman wants an abortion, he has no rights.
The woman is the one that has to go through the pregnancy or abortion if either happens, not the man. The man can just make a new baby with someone else if he wants one so badly and she doesn't. Now if a man wants his partner to get an abortion and she refuses then there's a moral gray area in whether or not he should still have an obligation to take care of the child, pay child support, or what have you, but if the woman wants an abortion then she should absolutely be allowed to get one. This isn't even a pro-life vs. pro-choice issue since in this case it's a given that the woman is pro-choice and abortions are legal.
