An anonymous reader writes: Many of us nerds are male, and this directly relates to our rights when it comes to parenthood. A friend of mine had a girlfriend for a few months, lasting until about three or so months ago. At that point they could no longer see each other due to neither have a job, and therefore not being able to pay for gas (they lived a hundred plus miles away from each other).
She swore she was on birth control. Now she says that she wasn't, that she's now pregnant, that she doesn't want my friend to be a father figure, and that she wants to move away from her parents and live on my friend's child support and other welfare. In the mean time she's been lying to her parents saying that my friend is ignoring her attempts at communication, while in actuality it has been the girl that is ignoring my friend.
Still, neither the girl nor my friend has a job. Given that the pregnant girl in question is a chronic liar, what legal recourse could my friend possibly have? She will say anything in court that she thinks will work.
