Actual cost of pregnancy in 2021: cost of food for the woman.
If jungle people in the Amazon can reproduce without paying a single dollar, then surely women can go through their pregnancies without expecting money from men.
Biological fathers in Utah will be legally required to pay half of a woman’s out-of-pocket pregnancy costs under a new law unique to the state that critics say doesn’t do enough to adequately address maternal healthcare needs.
The bill’s sponsor has presented the measure as an effort to decrease the burden of pregnancy on women and increase responsibility for men who have children. But some critics argue the new legislation won’t help women who are most vulnerable and could make abusive situations even more dangerous for pregnant women.
Utah appears to be the first state to mandate prenatal child support, according to the state’s Planned Parenthood association and the bill’s sponsor. But a few states, including Wisconsin and New York, have provisions that can result in fathers being financially responsible for pre-birth expenses.
Gov. Spencer Cox, a Republican, recently signed the proposal, which received widespread support in the GOP-controlled Legislature.
Republican Rep. Brady Brammer said he decided to sponsor the measure because he had grown frustrated with the number of anti-abortion measures going through the Legislature and wanted to pursue legislation that would make it easier to bring life into the world.
“We want to help people and actually be pro-life in how we do it as opposed to anti-abortion,” Brammer said. “One of the ways to help with that was to help the burden of pregnancy be decreased.”
The bill would apply to a pregnant woman’s health insurance premiums and any pregnancy-related medical costs, Brammer said.
If the paternity of the child is disputed, fathers won’t be required to pay until after paternity is established. The father also wouldn’t be financially responsible for the cost of an abortion received without his consent unless it’s necessary to prevent the death of the mother or if the pregnancy was the result of rape.
Men already pay for everything behind the scenes, but now they must also be forced to do that explicitly, as a form of humiliation.
If women don’t redeem themselves though the difficulties of pregnancy and childbirth, then how are they going to redeem themselves?
By pretending to be men while men pay to keep the illusion up?
Women are a financial burden.
At this point, they are akin to an alien parasite.
When “the government” pays for something, it is men who are paying. Whether men give money to women directly like what this bill proposes or indirectly through the government, the result is the same.
Men already built everything women draw comfort from, yet the myth remains:
Critics need to come up with a better excuse for letting men off the hook financially.
If women make only $0.70 for every dollar a man makes, then men should pay 70% of the medical expenses. 😉

$0.70 for every dollar, you heard the parrot.
Giving more to women is not going to make them think better of men – in fact the opposite. The more you give them, the more they increase their demands. Women would happily see you in tortuous slavery, your every breath serving their inane whims.
Giving less, on the other hand, is going to result in women respecting men more.
