Must include the father in decisions about abortions

Not so fast Mr. President, legislators, and all others who agree with the statement made concerning abortions, “She should be punished.” This is scary.

Consider the following concerns: where is the father in all this? It still takes both male and female to make/produce another human being. Shouldn’t a DNA test be taken to prove the existence of another human life before any action is taken, instead of hiding behind some bushes or elsewhere? And shouldn’t the father be required by law to be included in the decision-making process also?
