“Until Ben got his paternity test, which proves that he is the real father according to Ohio law, its presumption was that the husband was the real father, even though in this particular scenario he was not,” said Houston. As Wyrembek waited on a paternity test, Jason and Christy Vaughn filed for adoption. They argued that because Wyrembek was not legally the father at that time, Grayson was now their son. “You have a race to the courthouse under the current law under,” said Houston. “The Vaughns because they seek to adopt they only have to sprint 10 feet.

Fannie's Room: Ohio Bill 252: No Abortion For Sluts?

According to this paternity testing informational website, prenatal paternity testing can occur via a procedure that is "moderately invasive to the child," potentially harmful to the fetus and mother, and "expensive." Furthermore, this testing for purposes of paternity testing is usually not covered by insurance. I think the practical intent of this provision is to, basically, prevent sluts from having abortions. I don't throw the word "slut" around lightly, but it's evident that that particular moral judgment is being enshrined in this law given the burdensome requirement of pre-natal [more...]

NY Times talks "Baby Daddy" bill

The law that (Carnell) Smith helped to pass in Georgia, like a similar one in Ohio, sets no time limit on using DNA to challenge paternity. The premise is that a man shouldn’t be punished for entering a paternal relationship that he would have avoided had he known the truth. It is, Smith says, a correction to a double standard that allows mothers and caseworkers to use DNA to prove paternity but prohibits men from using that same evidence to escape its obligations. But child-welfare experts counter that a child shouldn’t be punished by losing the only father she has ever known — or the [more...]
