Regarding the suggestion of abortion as an option for a child conceived through the unlawful behavior of his or her father, it dawned on me that we could solve a lot of our problems if we simply extended a mother's right to do away with a problem beyond that problem's time in the womb.
After all, a newborn problem, a toddler problem or even a 7-year-old problem is still pretty dependent upon the adults for all the problem needs to thrive.
Rather than require the parent to properly take care of that problem or even give that problem to someone who sees the problem as a gift, why not just allow the parent of the problem to kill it?
We would not even have to make it a decision only one parent makes; if the father wants the product of his behavior removed from the earth, he could do so.
Never miss a local story.
Absurd? No kidding.
