A new law in Sweden is stirring up all kinds of controversy. Some are calling it the new “male abortion” law, others are calling it a “father’s rights” law. Either way, it’s sure to have men across the globe talking.
Under the new law, which is awaiting official enactment, men are allowed – up to the 18th week of pregnancy – to opt out of all parental rights and financial obligations. The chairman of the youth wing of the Sweden Liberal party explained, “It’s not just up to women to decide whether to have a baby or not. Men should have an equal right to opt out of parenting and choose whether or not to become a parent.”
A number of women’s groups in Sweden are fighting to STOP THE LAW from going into effect.
