Men: How to Coerce Your Pregnant Girlfriend into an Abortion

This piece of news, courtesy Life Site News, is absolutely appalling.

A recent article published in the online men’s magazine “AskMen.Com” provides advice for men on how to avoid becoming a father or husband if his girlfriend were to become pregnant. At the heart of the article is the message that women are hormonal basketcases who need to be convinced to make a decision which only honors the man’s interests and wants. With no explanation, the article was removed from the website earlier today

Isabella Snow, the magazine’s “sex education correspondent” is the author of this article.

Here are some excerpts, provided by Catholic News Agency:

Snow begins by noting that while male readers may hope a woman will “stick to the original plan and terminate the pregnancy,” some women may suddenly want to become mothers “despite previous agreements.” She advises the male reader to try to make his girlfriend consider his wants and desires by approaching her “correctly” and taking care with his “presentation.”

Snow advises discussing a possible abortion on a sofa at home to provide intimacy and “reduced eye contact,” purportedly to make it easier for the woman to speak “openly.”

“You’ll also want to take care with your word choice; pregnant women tend to feel like they’re carrying someone, as opposed to something, even if she is just a month or so pregnant,” Snow adds.

Snow describes these tactics as a matter of self-interest.

An unsupported woman could despair, in which state women “rarely make rational decisions.” Further, the column says, withdrawing from a woman would encourage her to ignore “any needs of yours that she may have been considering.”

Snow tells her readers “[if] your woman decides to have the baby anyway, this does not mean you’re required to get married or move in together.”

“You’ll probably want to provide for your child regardless, but if you’ve been clear about your intentions from the start, you are not obligated to contribute beyond what your conscience and the law expects of you. This was her decision, not yours, and the bulk of the responsibility is now hers.”

“Take a moment to spell this out for her when she gives you the final decision; it may just sway her over to your side,” Snow advises.

My final comment: It takes two to tango. To believe that the “bulk of the responsibility” is the woman’s is extremely irresponsible and selfish. Furthermore, the portrayal of women as easily manipulated and overly emotional should make every feminist, regardless of her view on abortion, infuriated.

  1. Matthew U. says:

    A man may think he’s “protecting” a woman’s interest by advocating an abortion, but it’s all wrong because life is being stopped and that in no way protects the baby. Adoption is the only other legitimate and moral option.

  2. Truth says:

    “My final comment: It takes two to tango. To believe that the “bulk of the responsibility” is the woman’s is extremely irresponsible and selfish.”

    In actuality this is the logical outcome of the radical feminist claim that the unborn baby is part of the woman’s body and hence her property which she has full rights to dispose of and thus the man who has part in procreation of that baby has no right to that baby from conception to birth. By making the baby the property of the mother where she has full rights and the father no rights, then the responsibility is also removed from the father, at least til birth. To make the father responsible for the baby once the child is born is inconsistent with the unborn baby claim that the baby til birth is property of the mother. After all, both father and mother are responsible for conception of the baby, yet the father has no right to that baby for months on end til the baby is born.

    By such logic, the baby being property of the mother, where the father is left out, cannot just suddenly be partially of the father once the mother gives birth. The radical feminist wanting it both ways contradict flat out their own claims of property rights. One who never had title to a property in the first place is not responsible for it, ever, ever, until the title is transferred or he becomes married to the owner of the title (though in radical feminist thinking, not even the husband has any right to the unborn). Remember, the father and mother cause the child to exist at conception, not just the birth of the child. So how did legally a property gets either transferred or become shared just because that property is no longer unborn?

    If the woman has total rights to the child, even to dispose of the child via abortion, where the man has no say and no right, then by that logic, the bulk of responsibility belongs to her. Not just that, but all of the responsibility.

    Do not get me wrong. I do not agree with this thinking. I am simply pointing out the fallacies in radical feminist thinking and justification for abortion on basis that women can do whatever they want with their own bodies, no matter if that choice kills their babies as their “properties” within their bodies. I do not respect men who ditch their women who they impregnated to avoid responsibility for the child they help conceive.

    But such an argument must be raised to the radical feminist who makes the justification for abortion like I mention here. In the radical feminist’s word, rights and responsibilities do not come in hand when it comes to the demand for women to have right to choose abortion anytime she wishes regardless of how others feel and regardless of the life she is carrying, but they demand that rights and responsibilities come in hand for the man to support the woman especially after birth. It is pure hypocrisy on their part.

    If they want to insist that the babies are their bodies or part of their bodies when unborn so they must have that right to dispose of those babies and no one can tell them otherwise, then they should take on full responsibility as well. Rights and responsibilities come hand in hand. And having full rights to something come hand in hand with full responsibilities, too.

    That is the argument for abortion on this basis is so self-serving and those who argue it do not really want to take it to its real logical conclusion.

    In other words, it is a very bad argument to make for abortion.

    And one more thing…many radical feminists are the ones who indeed make women out to be overly emotional and thus they need abortion since to tell them not to have sex to prevent abortion is like telling breasts not to grow (I have seen them used that actual phrase, too).
