I believe in some cases a woman should have the right to have an abortion if she so chooses But in the case of Steve and Michelle presented by philosopher George W Harris I feel that Michelle does not have the right to abort her child When Michelle decided that she was not going to tell her husband Steve about her intentions not to have children she was wrong She deceived her husband through her actions as well as lying to herself believing that she could change her husbands views of family life Michelle was unsuccessful in her attempts to change these views and soon the unexpected happened and she became pregnant Michelle now desires to have an abortion A large problem arises for Steve being the father does not agree to the abortion Although Michelle is the direct bearer of the weight of pregnancy this does not exclude the parental right of Steve Each parent has contributed to the offspring and therefore Steve should be able to have the right to decide whether his child will live or not The child is a part of him as well and therefore the father has a right to express and defend his views about the welfare of his offspring I am not blaming the whole uncomfortable situation on Michelle alone for Steve should have made sure along with Michelle that the two of them had the all important talk of family before getting married Personally I cannot understand how the subject was never brought up in a conversation I could not marry someone unless I was comfortable with his future plans and I knew that he was equally comfortable with mine Many of the problems that are causing this argument are the issues of trust and communication Certainly Michelle expected or trusted that Steve would understand her point of view which is obvious in her argument feeling that she could make Steve understand
