This is concerning the article (30 Nov 10) about male partners being held responsible for the abortion of their unborn child. I think being held responsible is very good but I also think the Social Development and Human Security Ministry should go one step further. In many instances, It is very sad to see that in Thai society it is socially acceptable for single mothers to be forced to take care of their children on their own, with no help from the fathers of the children. It should be required by law that the fathers be required to help support their children. If this is a law already in existence, it needs to be enforced. This would help relieve many social problems for single mothers in Thailand. It is sad to see that many mothers, because of uncontrollable circumstances, are forced to work in undesirable conditions to support their children. This should not be allowed in Thai society! If help for children is guaranteed by law, possibly the mother would choose to raise her child rather than choose an abortion. Better situation for all concerned!
