I’ve changed my mind…
A while back I may, or may not have discussed with my readers my thoughts on mandatory paternity/DNA testing for newborn babies and their alleged fathers. As I recall I had a firm stance on why it was intrusive and violated the rights of both the mother and the child. (I was pretty sure I blogged about this but maybe not…) But after giving it much thought and having a discussion with a family member about it, I have changed my mind, mandatory DNA testing is a good thing, it should be instituted in all states and this should happen ASAP.
…why such a huge turnaround in my stance on this issue?
Well one major factor was the extremely large amount of fathers who months or even years after the birth of a child find out that they are not actually the father of the child and that this was no mistake, oh no they were bamboozled. I know some of you may disagree with me on what I am about to say but any woman, and I do mean any woman who gets pregnant knows if there is a possibility that there may be more than one possible candidate as the child’s father. Say what you will, believe what you want but she knows and it is her duty to be truthful to the men that she could possibly be pregnant by. She is obligated…however too many times women don’t feel obligated to notify potential fathers that there may be other potential fathers and they allow themselves the authority and the choosing power of only notifying their “choice father” of the pregnancy. This is where a huge problem arises because just because he is the woman’s choice doesn’t mean he is the father. Women should do the right thing. Don’t let a man support you during pregnancy, plan for a child, sign a birth certificate and love and bond with a child that might not be his. If there is more than one potential father, a woman should do the right thing from the moment she finds out she is pregnant and that is inform any and all possible fathers of the pregnancy.
Dear United States Government,
You may be in control of a lot of things, but my mind and my vagina you cannot control.
Sounds ridiculous doesn’t it? Well to me it is quite ridiculous that in the land of the free the government not only wants to control how many babies a woman can have but they also want to make paternity testing mandatory at the time of a child’s birth in order to get a birth certificate with the father’s name on it. (Read the Mandated Paternity Testing Bill proposed by Senator Reginald Tate -D Memphis, TN)
The government has said that women are having too many babies that they can’t afford to take care of…but then on the other hand the government wants to limit birth control pills. They want to do away with abortion completely and I think next they will mandate in-home surveillance cameras to see who is having sex with who in hopes that they can make women account for their sex partners and have the fathers of babies out-of-wedlock on film so they can force them to take care of the children.
It disturbs me that the government wants to have so much control over citizens, I’m scared of what they will propose next.
And this may sound wrong or rude or whatever but how can a person be free to be gay but not be free to take a damn birth control pill. I say pop em’ to you see otherwise, a pill a day keeps unwanted babies away… I am in no way against homosexuals and their rights but hell if a person has the right to marry a person of the same sex shouldn’t a person have a say so over if they want to have an abortion?? (the war against Planned Parenthood read , read , read ) If a person has the right to have unprotected sex should not also have the right to take birth control pills or control whether they give birth to a child. That’s like saying it is okay to get sloppy drunk but you cannot, I repeat you cannot call a cab to take you home, go ahead and drive….smh
The government frustrates me….
It is getting very critical….I’m almost scared to use public bathrooms. Aside from many of them being disgusting I think the government may be collecting samples
