Abortion: men could have the final say in Ohio

Publié le : 30 May 2014

The Ohio State Assembly has included a draft law on its agenda, aiming to give the fathers of unborn children the option of expressing their views before an abortion is carried out. The father must give his written consent for the abortion. Otherwise the procedure will not be performed.

According to one of the supporters of the draft bill, the underlying principle of this legislation is as follows, “since the father will have the responsibility of child support, he should have rights regarding the birth or destruction of the foetus”.

In the journalist’s opinion, it is unlikely that this legislation will be passed.
