The Responsibility of the Penis
Here's a sharp essay reminding neocons that vaginas don't spontaneously generate babies out of original sin.  Pregnancy requires a penis, which is attached to a man, who owns at least 50% of the responsibility for causing the pregnancy (or 100% in case of rape).

Another thing about responsibility?  It depends on tools.  If you are denied the tools to influence outcomes, such as birth control and abortion, then you are less responsible for the outcomes, such as babies; while the people denying available tools acquire some of the responsibility. 

Telling people not to fuck does not count.  No society in known history has managed that, and quite a lot of them have tried for some groups of people.  Guaranteed failure, don't waste your breath.
