You have a male who doesn't want to care and provide (Or lacks the means to do so) for a child? He's a dead-beat *******.
You have a female who doesn't want to care and provide (Or lacks the means to do so) for a child? She's pro-choice.

While you can say that it's not the same as the woman sacrifices much to give birth to the child, so does the father. According to society, who is to care for the child? The mother. According to society, who is to provide for them both? The father. Having a child is a shared sacrifice - We shouldn't give one person a out, and ignore the other. Either neither should have a out, or both of them should.
It is not sexist in that a woman is not free to walk away from an already born child that the man wishes to keep. Just like she would have to pay child support if she walked away, so would he. It is a unique situation in pregnancy in that men cannot get pregnant. Therefore, giving them rights in pregnancy is literally the man dictating to the woman how she uses her body. That's very illegal and very immoral at its most base level.

Not all men...

Are all men stupid?

That's right.
