    He cannot possibly watch the birth without seeing her private parts, and that would likely make her uncomfortable (more uncomfortable anyway). At least with the others in the room who are seeing her naked, they would being helping her and/or the baby. His purpose there would be purely for him, not her nor the baby.

    We have these things called mirrors, you may have heard of them. As far as seeing her private parts, his already plowed that territory.

    Got that right. The child is already starting off life with a serious strike against him/her. Honestly, if anything the guy should take this as a harbinger that the woman isn't worth having in your life - and, by extension, the child.

    In order to see the child coming out of her private parts, he is going to get a view of her private parts. Doesn't matter how he sees them.

    He has no right to see them again, just because he's seen them before.

    Well someone who wanted to be present at the birth and was willing to take it to court for the privilege, doesn't sound like someone who will abandon his child. But those child support payments will ensure he has every right to be a part of the child's life and the woman will just have to deal with it.

    The father is only the father on the mothers' say-so until the kid's dna is checked.

    Yeah it appears women have a lot of rights.

    They have the right to not have the baby even if the man wants his child.
    They have the right to have the baby even when the man doesn't want the child and force the man to pay child support for it.
    They have the right to have the child and put it up for adoption denying the father the right to his own child.
    And now she has the right not to have the father in the delivery room when giving birth.

    Here's hoping in the near future a few judges remember men have rights too.

    There is only one I don't believe that women should have and in reality, they don't totally have, and that's putting the child up for adoption. But unfortunately, some women are bitches who will lie and claim they have no idea who the father is and the adoption agencies are more interested in making money, than doing the right thing. It sucks, but life isn't always fair. The rest are due to the nature of having children, and men and women's natural parts in having those children.

    Exactly. The woman's body is the one in danger. The man is in NO danger during a delivery. Women die during childbirth. Do men? No, they do not. Delivery can be potentially dangerous. It's not a friggin party where anyone can just show up, doesn't matter WHO it is.

    Why would he not be able to see his own child? Unless he's some sort of criminal offender, he should have the right to see HIS child.
