And that dad has rights to his child, whoever he maybe as well.
Much talk is about the child needing 'two parent' homes, no matter if the parent is biologically related to them. As long as it is two, then it is best for the child. It is whatever the adults choose.
Maria Italiano, 43, and Cher Filippazzo, 38, were legally married in Connecticut. They and a hairdresser for one of the women, Massimiliano “Massimo” Gerina, had an oral agreement about their arrangement, but a legal dispute erupted as he pondered the responsibilities of fatherhood, reported the Gay South Florida page of the Miami Herald. “We’re creating entirely new concepts of families. If you have two women seeking to be listed as Parent One and Parent Two, that does not exclude listing a man as father,” said attorney Karyn J. Begin, who represented Gerina.
Parent 1 and Parent 2..... maternal and parental DNA and ancestry be damned.
Marriage has to be two, but now we expanded the number of individuals on a person's birth certificate. I'm happy for the father to fight for his responsibilities and realize he is a not just a sperm donor. His orientation is irrelevant to who is in relation to his daughter.
Is this to benefit the child and her rights to her being and identity, or to benefit adults who treat the recording of birth as if the child was a piece of property at the registry of deeds?
