Is it fair to say women shoulder the extra responsibility of birth control if they dont want to get pregnant?

If it is her body her choice then surely it is should be her body her responsibility

    We have to as we bear the burden of an unplanned pregnancy.

    It takes two to tango. Both parties share the responsibility.

    I answer your question with another question. Can a man become with child? Can a man give birth?

    It's the reality, whether you think it's fair or not. Yeah, attempts at getting child support are an attempt at evening that out, but it is insufficient. This doesn't mean I think the idea of giving her all the rights is a good plan, but women DO share unequal responsibility regardless of what men or society do.

    On the other hand, men shoulder the extra responsibility for taking on danger and defense in society. That isn't exactly fair either.

    Both the male and the female have responsibilities. It is a simple matter for a man to practice safe sex. If a man doesn't want to shoulder the extra responsibility of child support payments, he should practice birth control.

      Condoms fail. Vasectomies are frequently non-reversible. Women have literally dozens of effective methods of birth control. Although I certainly think men should wear condoms to prevent the spread of STDs, your argument falls extremely flat.

    Hold on. If men want to get laid "more" than women do, then why shouldn't birth control be at least "half" a man's responsibility?

    We have to. Men have no responsibility about it and whine about wearing a condom.

    Yes. Women hold the burden of pregnancy and children no matter how society is structured, while men only hold the burden of children if the woman doesn't abort, he decides to stay, or society punishes men for not staying with laws like child support.

    Oh and yes, child support was put in place in part to punish men.

      As a man I'm glad society doesn't tolerate men who abandon their children .. Now it saddens me that society applauds when a woman chooses to abort her child .

    Men and women should both be involved (in both wanted pregnancies and avoiding unwanted ones).
