... 9 months pass and the child is born.

Poll.


NOTE:
I meant "If they have intercourse and the female, as a result of this encounter with this specific man, enters a state of pregnancy produced by the union of his spermatozoid with her egg".
Though I'd like to think non-morons knew what I meant anyway.

that depends if the guy was like i dont want no child, but she keeps it, then its mostly the mothers responsibility, because the father already declared he didnt want it. and vise versa.

but if nothing is said inbetween, then they are both equally responsible.

Assuming they were just screwing around and had no prior relationship, no he isn't responsible.

As she was already pregnant when they had ***, as per your title. Not only that, but the gestation period isn't 9 months, but closer to 10 months, 40 weeks. So if 9 months on the dot after having *** with the dude she had a kid, it isn't his. Assuming it was a full normal term pregnancy,

That's not really true, the man partook in unprotected sex knowing the risk, so he should be responsible for the repercussions, as should the women.

Semantics OP

EDIT: Also 40weeks is closer to 9 months than 10 months

40*7 = 280 days.

280 days / 30 (approx month) = 9.3

Maths OP

40 * 7 = 280

Let's assume an average of 30 days per month.

280 / 30 = 9 with a remainder of 10 days.
