Re: Dads rights: naming, circing, etc?

I think the thing with abortion, as well as with the actual process of childbirth, the patient is the mother, not the child. Therefore, it's a matter of patients rights. Once the child is born, that child is a patient in his or her own right, and either parent has the right of a parent. But until that point, legally, the child isn't really the patient, so there aren't any parents rights in play.

That is really what the crux of the issue in the abortion debate-is there one person or two?
