“My body, my choice" power
In the 1990s, if a woman and man make love and she says she is using birth control but is not, she has the right to raise the child without his knowing he even has a child, and then to sue him for retroactive child support even ten to twenty years later (depending on the state). This forces him to take a job with more pay and more stress and therefore earlier death. Although it’s his body, he has no choice He has the option of being a slave (working for another without pay or choice) or being a criminal Roe v Wade, in which an abortion was approved because the woman alleged she had been raped, gave women the vote over their bodies. Men still don’t have the vote over theirs – whether in love or war.
