It's impossible to accidentally conceive children. If you don't want to be a father, don't have sex. It really is that simple. People want to have their cake and eat it to but don't want to be responsible or deal with the consequences of their actions.
Both parties have a personal responsibility to control their own reproductive abilities. As a woman, if you don't want to get pregnant, there are a ton of options (outside of abstaining) from pills to patches, shots & *gasp* bringing condoms with you.
Likewise, men have a choice of bringing condoms with them or *gasp* not having sex. And if you're really dead set that you never in life want children, you can always have a vasectomy to be doubly sure. Just because you don't want
to have a child doesn't mean you're absolved of all responsibility or legal attachment to it once the child is born.
I said this in the other thread, if we willingly hook up and produce a mini me (whether intended or by accident)...whether you choose to be a stand up man or I have to get the state of NY to force you, you WILL be chipping in to support that child.
