How do you ensure everyone a basic income? you do so by siphoning more resources from the people who are gathering resources to begin with(typically men ironically) restricting their bodily autonomy... seeing the parallels here? Is this not like a baby siphoning resources from a mother? 

Please discuss if its a fair comparison or not below

Your parallels have one major failure point.  A UBI enables the lowest income earners in society to become contributing members of said society which in turn helps the whole society.  An unplanned child cannot be a contributing member of society for nearly 2 decades.  Worse still for a mother who may already be struggling and now has to struggle even harder.

That's disgusting.

I'm all for abortion unless it's being used as birth control. If you did the deed, face up to the responsibility.

Are you including the paternal figure here too?

Men are made responsible by law wether they like it or not. The law goes after him and rapes his finances for 18 years and if he misses one payment he is thrown in jail. But unlike men, women can opt out of responsibility. She can abort, put up for adoption, abandon her baby in a public toilet,building or even chuck it in the garbage to be found and no offence has been committed and she faces no financial penalties. That's female privilege for you.
