The Male Abortion

Sara Malm writes:

Expectant fathers in Sweden should have the right to 'legally abort' their unborn child up until the 18th week of pregnancy, the youth wing of the country's Liberal Party has proposed. 

Swedish Liberal Youth argues that men should be given an equal say in whether or not they wish to become a parent, and be granted the option to cut any lawful responsibilities. 

The suggested 'legal abortion' would be irreversible and would see the man renounce all parental duties and rights to see the child once it has been born.

'Men should have an equal right to choose whether or not to become a parent, says Marcus Nilsen, chairman of the Swedish Liberal youth wing West told Aftonbladet.

The proposal suggests a man should have the same right to 'abort' parenthood as a woman - up until the 18th week of pregnancy which is the legal abortion limit in Sweden.

Mr Nilsen also refuted accusations of misogyny, telling the newspaper that the original motion had been filed by female members of the party.

This is the second controversial proposal to be suggested by the Swedish Liberal Party's youth wing in just over a week.

At the end of last month, the Liberal Youth of Sweden filed a motion to legalize necrophilia, with written pre-death consent, and incest between two consenting siblings.

A spokesperson for the party enclave said that just because it is 'viewed as unusual and disgusting', does not mean that the deprived sexual acts should be illegal.

The controversial announcement was quickly criticised by the Liberals, and several senior figures within the mother party. 

Former Liberal MP Carl B Hamilton lashed out at the youth wing accusing them of craving publicity over politics by focusing on issues that 'hardly determines our, and Sweden's future.' 

'Surely, you must understand that people are laughing at your liberalism, you nitwits? And what other challenges facing society is on the top 100-list for Stockholm's Liberal Youth? Sex with hippos?'

A press spokesperson for the Liberals said last week that the mother party does not back the youth wing, and wants both necrophilia and incest to remain illegal.

And if you have to say it.

But this "male abortion" thing wants watching.
