Abortion and Fatherhood

Interesting article in Inside Catholic on Abortion and the Rights of Fathers.

The article focuses on a young man in the United States who took legal action to save his unborn child when his girlfriend decided to have an abortion. Like others who have sought to defend their children in court, he lost the case and the child perished. Tragically, this situation is repeated every day around the world as a result of unjust laws that see an unborn child as mere 'pregnancy tissue' to be extracted and a father, in the words of the article, as 'little more than a soulless contributor of DNA'.
