I usually steer clear of anything that could be of controversy. However, I just had to see others' opinion on what I watched today. Maybe I jumped the gun too quick in my own opinion or what you think may have me open my eyes and see his side...
I'm watching Dr. Phil as I type this post....and I am disgusted beyond belief.
A young man from Michigan had a girlfriend. She told him she couldn't get pregnant and was on birth control. (has he never heard that the only 100% effective birth control is abstinence?!)
Guess what happened.
She got pregnant.
He has tried to go to court twice to not have to pay child support and get the child out of his life forever (the court threw it out each time). Why? Because he feels it's in his "best interest" at this moment in his life to not be a dad; that he was tricked into being a dad, that it's not fair that he has to pay child support, that she should have placed the child under adoption.
He has never met his child.
He has never held his child.
He has no intention to be a father to her. Ever.
In my opinion?
He should have refrained from having sex if he wasn't willing to be a father/pay child support.
Maybe he should have also worn a condom. Why is it always up to the woman to be on birth control??
When will people start accepting responsibility for their actions?
I feel bad for this child.
What do you all think?
Do you agree with him that he isn't being treated fairly by the legal system and that because he feels at this time he doesn't want to be a dad that he shouldn't have to pay child support?
Or do you agree that if he didn't want to become a dad then he shouldn't have had sex in the first place?
I am so annoyed by this guy. Seriously.
Leo pays child support monthly. So I understand the whole child support side....
I don't mean to sound harsh....but just how this guy presented himself really got under my skin. Basically that it was this woman's own fault that she got pregnant. Ridiculous. I better turn off the show before I get too worked up!
