Where does a man's responsibility fall in these cases? Should this be considered sexual assault? Should a man be able to ask to have a pregnancy from this type of situation terminated?
Maybe the man should abstain from having sex with a woman who is soon going to be his "ex" ?

I think this is where an individual has to weight the pros and cons of "casual sex" and realize that a nanosecond of pleasure can very well mean a lifetime of responsibility for a child you may not want.

There was a fairly well-known case in the states about a doctor and his g/f. He didn't want kids and made this known. There relationship was faltering.

She gave him a blow-job one day (as their relationship was ending). Once he was done, she went to the bathroom, spat into a cup and used that sperm to impregnate herself. Once she gave birth, she sued for C/S and won. He tried to argue his sperm was stolen, but she said, and the judge agreed, that it was a "gift" or something like that once released. And that it is in the best interests of the child to be supported.

However, I think he sued her for something in return (trauma or mental anguish) and he won as well.

While there are more cases like this coming out, they are still super rare. But instances like this, I am torn. Intercourse was not the cause of the pregnancy and it was another parties unilateral decision to use another persons sperm for something the man never intended it to be used for. In cases like this, I feel the mom should have to go it alone if the father chooses (to be an idiot and) not to be involved.

I recall watching a soap opera that had a story line something like that. In the soap the female entrapped the guy who happened to be a billionaire and everyone lived happily ever after.

But then you know how it usually goes.... if you dip your wick something may stick!

One of the things sports agents tell their sports star clients is that you never leave the condom you used in the hotel room garbage, etc. They've had a couple of cases where its been alleged that women they pick up and bring back to hotel room rooms have stolen the condoms out of garbage cans after sex to impregnate themselves and get hefty CS payments.

Again, there's no such thing as casual sex.

I haven't read all the posts as there are too many, but that is hog wash.
Equality is only equality if it is for all.

In Canada a woman can carry a baby into a hospital and leave the child their and not be asked any questions. They are no longer on the hook for Child support.

A man doesn't have the same option. That is inequality.

I had to fight everything including the kitchen sink to maintain access with our children. That I love more than anything in the world, that is inequality.

So did I. My male ex sued me for sole custody.

Women fight for custody rights the same as men do.

If this is true...
Makes you wonder why a Man cannot do the same. Can you imagine the outrage if a guy did that...

And again, considering unequal things to be equal is not equality. It is discrimination.

That's sexiest. Equal rights, a woman can go off to war and fight for their country. Even thought a man is biologically more stronger and on average taller.
Equal rights are equal rights respective of their bio or gender.
