In America we live in a free society where people should have the right to decide whether or not they want to keep a baby. Women currently have this right. They can choose to raise the child or abort it. The father has no say in the process. If a mother decides to keep the child then the father deserves the right to accept or opt out of fatherhood, including payments. If the mother decides to willingly keep the baby knowing the father does not want to, then she is accepting full responsibility of raising the child by herself.
