United States

In the case of Planned Parenthood of Central Missouri v. Danforth, 428 U.S. 52, 96 S. Ct. 2831, 49 L. Ed. 2d 788 (1976), the Supreme Court of the United States upheld the right to have an abortion, striking the state's requirements of parental consent for minors and spousal consent for married women.

This is a matter of privacy since a fetus cannot be separated from a woman's body.

A father must establish his paternity after the birth through DNA testing that can be arranged through court in order to establish parental rights.

England and Wales

The foetus is considered part of the womans body (except in the case of deliberate murder) and therefore the father has no say whatsoever.

From a legal standpoint, a father has no rights over the unborn child. Roe vs. Wade took care of that. But if the mother decides on having the baby, the father becomes responsible. * Any parent can file a Termination of Parental Rights (TPR) petition in the appropriate state court in the city or county of residence. Such a petition cannot be filed nor can child support or custodial issues be addressed until the child is born and paternity has been established.
