Think we know who takes responsibility afterwards, for many years to come.
The "not being a parent" thing doesn't wash. I've had the sex, I'm also too responsible to bring something in this world that I'm not in a position to either take care of or lose a part of my life to have to take care of. I don't want marriage, so there again, imo, it would be an imperfect situation that I'm not willing to go down the road - of.
Even if the chick says she's "taken care of it" - I'd still wear 4 condoms on top of each other. And if she says "oh I never use them" I'd leave or wear 8!!
I may not be a parent, but myself and many like me don't chose to - but have to pay the taxes to fund the majority of this. If there was an opt-out for lesser taxage, I'd say have as many as u freakin like.
We seem to support a heck of alot of kids as non-parents.
