The fatherhood question

Kevin T. Kevin questions my post concerning the rights of fathers to choose to be fathers or not to be fathers.

Irony was the point, Kevin.
There definitely is no child for hours to days after ejaculation. There’s not even an embryo or fetus.

Where is the logic in determining the “personhood” based on one other person’s arbitrary decision to kill or not kill? Surely the choice to not be responsible in the way that fathers are held responsible by the courts is much more private than the choice requiring licensed and regulated medical personnel, equipment and medication.

Ancient law holds that anyone who digs a hole is responsible for harm if anyone falls in that hole, even much later than the act of digging. It’s a good law, calling for responsibility on the part of everyone who digs.
