Dad-blamed paternity laws

“When the government accuses you of fathering a child, no matter how flimsy the evidence, you are one month away from having your life wrecked.” What if you’ve got DNA evidence conclusively proving you aren’t the dad? Sorry, but that won’t necessarily help. “The system aimed at catching ‘deadbeat dads’ illustrates how a noble-sounding effort to help children and taxpayers can trample the rights of innocent people.” (Matt Welch, “Injustice by Default”, Feb.)(see Aug. 7-8, 2001; May 22, 2000).
