Nobody will enforce the penalties.

If such licensing were started, the worst segment of society would get the licenses.

            your post is silly. Actually it's very misogynistic. If a dude doesn't want a child he should keep it in his pants or use a condom. Two people; both responsible for their bodily functions.

              My point made... Apparently biology is misogynistic. Gotta take that up with whichever deity you prefer.

                to say that the responsibility for pregnnancy lies ONLY in a woman's hands is simply BS

                  If you want him to have responsibility for her body, you give him authority over it in equal measure.

                        The problem, as I see it, is that in our drive to try to make things equal across the board, there just may be situations where we can not achieve that goal. Yes - if the goose and gander share equal ... more

                          Biology is key. But if biology does not allow truly equal authority, then it should not result in equal responsibility.
