A hard cutoff time for making an arbitrary decision to abort is just to stop the arguments, lawsuits and conflicting legislation see-sawing back and forth. With a hard cutoff, everybody knows where things stand. I don’t know if it would increase or decrease abortions.

That’s not even the main point of the article, which is:

Paternity — require the sperm donor to pay child support until the child is 21 years old.

Plus details on how it would work and some of the ramifications.

You provided some nice support for that.

Thanks for the response.
