What is it about that nine months?

Alright I can fully see why men should not have the final say in whether a given woman has an abortions or not. Now that we have that out of the way can someone tell me something.

What is it about that nine month headstart that magically translates into said given woman having full unchallenged control over a child's life once that child is born?

I've gone over it before and here it is again. Girl has a baby and she takes it upon herself to decide what the dad's role in that child's life gonna be.
She assumed that her boyfriend Christian would go along with the plan, and as long as she assumed that, all was well.

But then Christian began reading from his own script. He decided he wanted to parent his son and that decision was not welcomed by his girlfriend. So their relationship went south.
Well now. It would seem that since this young girl didn't want or determined she could not support the child they created she speaks for Christian and decided to put the child up for adoption anyway.

Sounds familiar right?

You know the drill. Society tells men/boys that we are not supposed to want to be there for our kids. People go on and on about how men need to "man up" and take responsibility for their kids as if men are the only problem at work. And more than likely those same people will ignore this case until Christan loses custody and then come out of the woodwork to call him a deadbeat.

When it comes to parenting society has decided that the nine months a woman carries a child means that she has the sole vote on anything and everything in that child's life once they are born. That's not good.
