In the case that a sex act between a man and a woman results in
conception, then he can, at his sole discretion, abandon financial
responsibility for any resulting child, but if he abandons
responsibility, he must fully pay for the immediate medical expenses
of childbirth or for the killing and extraction of the unborn child,
between which the woman can choose at her sole discretion.
Any such declaration of abandonment of financial responsibility must
be officially supplied to the state at most 3 months after conception,
or within one week of first officially learning that a conception or
birth has occured. The woman must be informed of the declaration as
quickly as possible, and if at all possible, within 24 hours of
In the case that the man abandons financial responsibility, he
abandons any right to visiting or temporary custody of the child that
results from the pregnancy, but he must be permitted to visit or take
temporary custody if the child requests it, or if he requests it and
the mother permits it, in the manner set forth in
§ Rights of Children and Parents.
If the father is aware of the pregnancy, and does not register an
affidavit, he must support the child, at a rate of up to one third of
an average wage. At his discretion, the father can deliver all of the
support by transfering to the current guardian actual goods needed to
provide for the child, or non-transferable contracts that can be
redeemed only for those goods.
