    First Things: The New Focus on Children’s Rights

    What do donor conception, surrogacy, divorce, and adoption have in common? According to the newly-founded International Children’s Rights Institute (ICRI), they are all practices which violate the rights of children to be born free, to be raised by his or her biological parents wherever possible, and to have a knowledge of the heritage of his or her biological parents. Dubbed “Bonds that Matter” for its focus on these beginning-of-life issues, the ICRI’s inaugural conference gathered scholars, activists, and students from around the country to Simi Valley, California last Friday to discuss the various ways in which these four practices violate children’s rights.

    First to speak was Alana Newman, founder of Anonymous Us and speaker on behalf of the many donor-conceived children and adults who, like herself, believe that their lives have been permanently affected for the worse by having been cut off from at least one biological parent. Beginning with her own personal testimony, Newman recounted the behavioral problems that she experienced after realizing that her biological father was paid for his promise to stay out of her life. Newman pointed out that not only do many donor-conceived adults suffer from feelings of worthlessness, grief, and shame, but all of them have no information about half, or all, of their genetic background.

    Donor conception can create societal problems, explained Newman. For example, the American Society of Reproductive Medicine recommends (note: These numbers are not based on law, the reality could be much worse) a limit of twenty-five children per donor per population of 800,000. If you do the math, this means that within New York City, one person could have 258 offspring, so the son of such a donor could easily have over a hundred sisters in the same area. The result is that people may unknowingly engage in incest and have consanguineous children, the first of which is prohibited in all fifty states and the second of which may produce unhealthy children.

    It happens. Saw an episode of Paternity Court last month where a married couple had to subject themselves to DNA testing to make sure they weren’t related. They weren’t, thankfully.

    Giant panda Ai Hin faked her pregnancy for a ‘better quality of life.’ Next she fakes paternity for child support.

    John Edward Gill: My Child is Missing Again

    At ten a. m. Monday morning the phone rang. It was Roberta Berger, one of Estelle’s closest friends.

    “John, I want you to know Margie is fine.”

    “Where is she?”

    “I can’t tell you. But she’s fine.” (More …)

    Human rights update:

    In a historic case, Japan’s Supreme Court has ruled that DNA tests are not sufficient to invalidate familial paternal relations, even if the results from the test show no signs of blood relation to the assumed father.

    The ruling means that under the Japanese Civil Code, DNA tests cannot change the status of a child who is considered the legitimate offspring of a married couple.

    The court ruling, handed down on Thursday, said that it was paramount to protect the social status of the child, Sankei Shimbun reported. Even if DNA testing shows that the child has no blood relationship to his familial father, the paternal status of the father cannot be revoked.

    The court made the ruling after deliberating on three cases. In two cases, two married women became pregnant after having extramarital relationships. In the third case, a married man asked the court to invalidate his paternal relationship with two of his children after DNA tests established they were not his offspring. His appeal was rejected by the Supreme Court, Sankei reported.

    Garutachi. Japanese birthrates are dropping like a stone and such legally-protected fraud against fathers and children won’t help. 

    This might, though.

    Perhaps some day paternity will be seen as a human right, and not just when money is involved

    Feminist Melanie McDonagh: Paternity can now be verified by a simple test – but that doesn’t mean it should be. Lots of disagreement with her in the comments.

    In lieu of traditional fatherhood (ie: Dad married faithfully to Mom), mandatory DNA paternity testing at birth is the only thing that guarantees the rights of parents and children.

    So “safe sex” now means “only with a camera running“?

    Meh. Stealth video has its risks too. Maybe just a quick, private video clip BEFORE you get down to bidniss to document your mutual consent, though hot and monogamous is still the best protection against this sort of thing.

    Human rights update: Judge rejects mother’s allegations of sexual abuse against father. “The judge concluded that the father had not abused his children, nor behaved inappropriately around them. He added that preventing the children from seeing their father was ‘damaging’ and he hoped the damage could be repaired.” As noted earlier, nothing can replace time lost with his kids.

    But [South Carolina] state leaders are less concerned with the percentage of babies born to unwed parents than they are with the percentage of unmarried dads who are willing to step up to the plate.

    Paternity fraud prevention testing would help.
