So the man is denied rights because of his act of copulation before marriage and can be continuously denied these rights by a woman because of her act of copulation before marriage.
Child’s best interest be damned I guess.
What is the child’s best interest? It seems to me that that is the question.
Suppose the man is a total, abusive jerk? Should the mother have to go to court like if she was married? I don’t think so.
I just think, in this case, that it is pretty clear which systems have worked, both for the best interests of the child, and of society.
Yeah. Keep in in your pants, or in a rubber till marriage, and these problems will cease to exist for you.
By the way, did you read the article?
As I understood it, the mother would be allowed to reject the father’s voluntary acceptance of paternity so that somebody else could have those rights.
Now THAT is pretty bad.
