Abstract

Over the past few decades, gender equality has slowly made its way into many areas of family law where women were once the favored sex. Despite the trend toward treating men and women equally, women continue to have the unilateral right to decide whether a conception, which was jointly formed, will result in parenthood. From the time a pregnancy commences until a fetus is either born or aborted, courts have held that a man has no right to decide whether or not he will become a parent. This comment examines recent changes in society and the law which, in appropriate circumstances, point toward providing a man with reproductive rights. In addition, the comment proposes means by which those rights may be effectuated.
