The comment below is interesting, showing another viewpoint on the abortion debate. Even the most pro-choice would like to avoid abortion if possible, but this comment shows why the pro-choice are pro-choice and not pro-life.
My reply to this comment was less of a rebuttal but instead an expansion. I also attempted to divert some of the blame to our culture and Hollywood instead of on men alone.
ROFL. The salient question is why any nation would deny females the right to control their own destiny and fertility.
Thank you for pointing out one of the larger issues of the abortion debate: women rights. Also, your post points out the solution to the abortion issue: the choice to not get pregnant in the first place.
As you pointed out, if "males around the planet begin to take responsibility for their sexual behaviors that result in impregnating girls and women against their wishes," the abortion issue can be resolved. I think that you will agree, however, that the problem is deeper than that.
The true problem is that girls and women are letting men impregnate them even if the women do not want to be impregnated. Our culture, though based on "predation, misogyny, entitlement, religious dogma and even nation building," has evolved a life of its own. Our culture, even though growing more liberal, has failed to portray the many different types of women.
How many variations of "female" have you seen in movies? Not as many as you see of male. The media portray men in so many ways, in that there is a man in nearly every scenario imaginable. But the media only portray women a few ways. As complete feminist or completely traditional. The media tries to be feminist, though they should not by trying. They should instead try to portray women in more roles. If they do not, many women will still feel inferior to men, and thus will submit to men's wishes of impregnation
