Women must actually carry the child to term and give birth to it. That is why only mothers have the universal right to voluntarily give their parental rights AND financial responsibilities for their child(ren).

The Safe Haven Laws were specifically enacted to help prevent "prom night dumpster babies." Rather than throw the child in the trash or drown it in the toilet, she can give up her child, giving up all rights and responsibilities for said child (NO QUESTIONS ASKED) at any Hospital ER.

Women and girls who give up their babies under the Safe Haven Laws almost invariably do so because neither her family nor the baby's father want the child and will not help her care for it. It is practically unheard of for a woman to give up her child under the Safe Haven Laws when the father is present and willing to care for the child. Women give up their children under Safe Haven because they have no other option.

While the father can run off, never to be seen again, the woman cannot do the same since the child is growing inside her body. That is why Safe Haven Laws exist for women, but similar laws do not exist for men.

Another Perspective
A very good reason for the voluntary termination of parental rights is to allow the child to be adopted by an adult who wants the responsibilities and benefits of being the child's legal parent. It is commonly done when a step-parent wants to adopt their spouse's child legally. The custodial parent must consent and generally, the parent who is to relinquish their rights cannot be the petitioner.
