An Ohio senator is fighting hard to pass a law that will enable women to sue men for causing unintended pregnancies, while another one wants the date Roe v. Wade was overturned, June 24, declared “Life Day,” both are the result of the landmark decision made by the U.S. Supreme Court.
I just have to pause for a moment and say the whole idea of allowing women to sue men for unintended pregnancies is one of the dumbest things I’ve ever heard. Is this individual assuming that the woman played absolutely no part in the process of creating the unborn child?
Did this senator fail biology class? Women who consent to have sex with men are just as much to blame for a pregnancy as the man. As the old saying goes, it takes two to tango. It’s unreal this needs to be explained like this to adults, but hey, we’re living in an age where people honest-to-goodness think a man can wake up, declare himself a woman, and magically become one. I guess nothing should be surprising at this point.
“Sen. Tina Maharath, D-Canal Winchester, used both the Supreme Court decision and the state’s new ban as her push to introduce Senate Bill 262 that would allow a civil action against any person causing an unintended pregnancy or any person aiding or abetting someone to have caused an unintended pregnancy,” Just the News reported.
“Many women and girls in Ohio do not have the resources to either travel or afford having a baby. The average cost of giving birth in our state is over $15,000, and can rise substantially if there are complications,” Maharath said. “Too often, this cost is solely the mother’s to bear, especially in the case of an unintended pregnancy. However, the father shares equal responsibility for the pregnancy and it is only right that he pays equally for it.”
As Forrest Gump famously said, “That’s all I got to say about that.”
Not that I disagree with men taking responsibility for the part they play in creating a pregnancy. I just don’t think suing a person is the way to go about making sure that happens. How are they going to collect the money? What about court costs for the individual filing the lawsuit?
It really doesn’t seem practical.
Guess I had more to say after all.
“Maharath’s bill, which has been assigned to the Senate Judiciary Committee, calls for the minimum amount of damages awarded to be $5,000 plus court costs and attorneys fees. The statute of limitations would be five years,” the report continued.
Sen. Matt Huffman, a Republican from the Tipp City area of Ohio, introduced his own bill that would declare June 24, the day Roe died a much deserved legal death, “Life Day” in the state.
“June 24, 2022 was a historic day in the United States, an overdue turning point in our nation’s history,” Huffman stated. “Life Day will serve as a reminder for generations to come of our ongoing fight to protect human life, that we didn’t quit fighting for their right to life, and the day that the highest court in the land reaffirmed our belief that every life is precious and deserving of dignity and respect.”
So the first idea about suing men is dumb, as I stated above. However, I’m digging the second one. We should always be a culture that celebrates the protection of life and abhors murder.
