There's a pay wall if you've read like 3 articles on an IP, but, just leaving this here

The weaker sex
Blue-collar men in rich countries are in trouble. They must learn to adapt


I think this is what's driving a lot of man anger these days, the slow and annoying realization that we're losing the battle of the sexes.

Certainly, abortion does not. I'm sure that cuts costs down. Is it contraceptives in healthcare? Wouldn't be surprised if those cut costs too (I'd love to see a detailed study eventually once it's widespread enough).

Is it the decision of poor mothers to have babies tax-subsidized by the state? That part is certainly both the man and woman deciding to have unprotected sex.
I'm saying that the man has pretty much zero input on the decision to have a child once the woman is pregnant.

this was what I was disagreeing with. so you're saying that people who live in manhattan are not part of "real life"?
