Supreme Court Rules in Favor of Allowing Men to Force Women to Have Abortions
The Supreme Court voted 6-3 in favor of a Men's Advocacy Group seeking the legal right of a man to force a woman carrying his child to have an abortion Monday.
Decided in a special session after the 2021-22 term came to a close two weeks ago, the case effectively carves out an exception to the statewide bans on abortion being legislated across the nation in the wake of SCOTUS striking down Roe v. Wade last month.
"Upon impregnating a woman, many men decide that they would rather the woman not proceed with that pregnancy, and that choice needs to be respected," Colin Crawley, the attorney representing HeToo, the plaintiff in the case, argued.
"An unwanted pregnancy can have serious ramifications on a man's life, affecting everything from both his short and long-term financial wellbeing to his physical and mental health," Crawley said.
Derek Cobb of Decatur, Georgia, one of the original complainants in the case, described the hardships he has faced since involuntarily becoming a father in 2017.
"I was twenty when my girlfriend refused to get an abortion, and it pretty much ruined my life," Cobb said. "I had to drop out of college, quit my volleyball team and sell my PlayStation for diaper money."
Added Cobb: "Now I have three jobs, a ton of debt and a daughter who's pretty meh."
