    Not an opinion, but an observation based on empirical data:

    Reasons given for having abortions in the United States

    There are plenty of secular people who are pro-life. What do you say to them?

    The entity/fetus/unborn baby is just an egg without a male's sperm to fertilize it. Does said male sperm depositor of this unborn entity have any rights or say in the matter? Or is it entirely about the woman's rights to her own body?

    You feel the sperm depositor should have rights to her body? I find it doubtful that you do since you have always struck me as an intelligent person. So what rights do you think he should have that do not over ride the rights of the woman to her body?

    Considering that spermatozoa is the smallest individual cell the human produces, and fertilizes the largest individual cell the human body produces, the male of our species procreates by contributing as little as possible, yet still want their 50% “rights”!

    Weird, I don't see "avoidance of personal responsibility" listed as a response in any of the surveys. Did you mean to post a link to something else?

    Stop having abortions. And work hard to fund comprehensive sex education and easy to access free contraception for teens and young adults. And work to increase tax dollars going to support single and low income potential new mothers.

    I didn't say rights to her body. I'm asking if he has or should have some rights, or at least some say, to the living organism he helped create and whether or not to abort it. In most instances (not talking about rape scenarios and such), the woman shared her body with the man that led to the creation of the organism. Now it's just hers and hers alone to decide what to do with it?

    Are you suggesting that size matters?

    I understand this. I am asking what rights you feel he should have that do not override her right to bodily integrity?

    Yes, that is how consent works.
