Man: "No termination"
The way you are discussing this, the man's view would win because it is more equal, somehow. Thus, the woman would be forced to carry a fetus she does not want.
You are right, that is a sticky point. I think that, when such impasses are reached, that we should err on the side of life.
Quite frankly I find that viewpoint shocking and disturbing. It isn't a sticky point, if the woman wants a termination, then she has the right to have one. This is what everyone is trying to get you to see, it isn't the man's choice because until the child is born, he has no rights over the child. I'm rather sure if I bothered to look in the legal journals that are upstairs in my uni library, I'd find a nice case that would agree with this. Or if I took some time to search the legal documentation on the UK/US websites.
