I was researching information about the male birth control pill and ran across this great post. They touch upon several issues. I think more needs to be said about this. What would really happen if there was male birth control pill?

…..Most men are getting the picture that when it comes to sex, they are more than just the initiator, they must come to grips with being on the defensive. I really don’t care about fairness, but about motive. I will not even get into false rape accusations in this post that is for another post entirely. If we count up all of the “options” a woman possesses, including various adoption options, a woman can keep a man out of a child’s life forever! He has very little say in the matter. He can sue, but unless she gives the baby up for adoption, and has not succeeded in misinforming him completely; he is out of luck. When the option of abortion is chosen, a man has no choice. She will go to a tax-funded, non-profit, non-disclosed location to have the procedure performed. The father may never know, even if he discovers what is going on, he is always too late.
The reverse is also true of abortion. When a man does not want a child with a woman, he had better pray she does not have access to his genetic material. Whether by shear stupidity on his part, or subterfuge on hers, family courts will not care how it happened, but that a pregnancy occurred. This is not a problem; taxpayers do not want to fund anyone’s children, illegitimate or otherwise. Why people argue so much about Welfare, no one here is saying that. What is being said however is that if she decides to carry to term, whether she is married to him or not, it is solely her choice. His desire to have a child, or not is not up to him once she gets pregnant. I am not going to discuss what I think a man’s responsibilities are. My point in regards to the man is that a woman always has a way out; a man is at her mercy as soon as he has been with her. He has no way out or recourse unless it is given him by the mother. If men had the adoption to “opt-out” of the responsibility of a child, this would drastically even the playing field on sexual reproduction; but kill society even worse than the current level of uninhibited sex has already done.
Compounding the issue further are family courts. Women gain custody five to one nationwide, and more often men are left with support. This dynamic has shifted several areas of society against men. From numerous government entities, to a task force of lawyers firms and “professional” court aides, men are at their wits end on how to just “be with” their children. Not to mention how to avoid government enforced poverty. Young men are taking notice, and marriage rates are slipping. Marriage rates, not relationship rates. Men and women are getting together more than ever before. Also, they are switching partners more than ever before. Tax subsidies are doled out to states as they collect child support, and this increases their incentive to ever burdening the payer. Arrearages, state seizure of tax refunds, professional and driver’s licenses, passports, credentials, and throwing payers in to modern day debtors’ prisons are all having an effect. As prisons are more and more controlled by private firms, which receive tax subsidies as well, men have their work cut out for them. Lose your job, and you had better get creative, or pray that the “overburdened” family court judges have time for you between tee times, and feminist speaking engagements.
