The woman has all the rights, the man's only purpose is to donate sperm and write the checks. Welcome to America.
if the parents are not married, who automatically has the right to take the kid home from the hospital and who has to go to court to get visitation or custody?
once the child is born, the woman faces no more risk than the man, so why does she automatically get the kid?
if the parents disagree on custody and they haven't been to court yet, if the mother takes the kid home from the hospital without the father's permission, she's just being a mother. If the father takes the kid home from the hosiptal without the mother's permission, he's a ****ing kidnapper.
When you have to carry a baby inside of your body, put your health at risk and deliver that baby out of your body, then you might have a case.
