A guy sues to divorce himself from child support because his girlfriend allegedly lied to him.
Matt Dubay, was assured by his girlfriend that a medical condition made her infertile. Then she got pregnant, and now he has to pay child support. “There’s such a spectrum of choice that women have — it’s her body, her pregnancy and she has the ultimate right to make decisions,” said Mel Feit, director of the men’s center. “I’m trying to find a way for a man also to have some say over decisions that affect his life profoundly.”
This probably won’t make it all that far but it is an interesting caveat. Since contraception and abortion (while it lasts) give women full control of their reproductive destiny, shouldn’t men have the same option?
