When we look at the extraordinarily high rates of single motherhood in some places, we can see that fathers are indeed “opting out.” This has been happening for a long time.
So when I saw this article in the weekend National Post I was actually somewhat pleased to see feminists catching up with the logic of it all.
I remember once doing a radio debate with some pro-choice feminists and I raised the point that if women have the choice to abort, then men have the choice to walk away. And I was surprised that they didn’t buy it. They wanted it both ways, ie. we choose to abort, c’est la vie, and we choose to keep the baby and the man does what we want. That just doesn’t make any sense to me.by
