If he doesn't want to be responsible, then he shouldn't have sex or he should have a vasectomy or at the very least, wear a condom. It is not a legitimate excuse that she said she couldn't get pregnant or that he said he didn't want kids. I guess the only excuse would be if it was a boy and he had sex forced on him by an adult woman.
