Author and entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy has suggested that if a woman becomes pregnant and has a child, she should be able to legally require the father to fully financially support both her and the child until that child turns 18, provided that the man’s fatherhood has been verified via a paternity test.
“Here’s an idea to bridge the divide on abortion: codify sexual responsibility for *men* into the law. If a woman carries a child to term, she can automatically make the man fully $ responsible both for herself *and* for the child, if confirmed by paternity test. Should be an idea that both parties can agree on,” Ramaswamy tweeted when sharing a video in which he discussed the idea during an appearance on “The Breakfast Club.”
Elon Musk agreed with Ramaswamy, replying, “Yes.”
Ramaswamy has previously said that he believes “abortion is a form of murder” and that the issue should be decided by states, not the federal government.
Ramaswamy dropped out of the Republican presidential primary last week and endorsed former President Donald Trump. He came in a distant fourth place in the Iowa Republican presidential caucus, finishing behind Trump, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, and former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley.
“The southern border disaster isn’t the product of incompetence. It’s the intended result of years of careful planning by the Democrat Party. Once you understand that, the situation makes a lot more sense & the solutions become much simpler,” Ramaswamy asserted in another tweet.
“Correct,” Musk replied.
