    Not really because it's inside of her body. Any kind of complications that arise, put the mom's life in jeopardy, not the dad's.

    Only when it benefits him and other men (or he perceives it as benefiting him).

    How is a hangnail or really any other type of situation similar to the one this thread is about? A baby being born like it or not doesn't just involve the woman.

    As for seeing the baby, people are flipping out as if the father is being prevented from seeing his child FOREVER.
    No, people are complaining because the woman is blocking the father from seeing his own child from being born. They find her decision disrespectful towards the man, and find that people have a right to see their child being born.

    I'm good with privacy laws, but I'm not good with women blocking fathers out of the delivery room.

    Well, I guess he should have tried harder to be the kind of person she wanted to spend her life with. Otherwise, as Plato said, tough titties.

    Then you're not good with privacy laws, because those laws are what gave her the right to block him from the room.

    Oh well. It's the woman who has to take all the risks here. If he makes her feel uncomfortable or bad, then too bad. Being INVITED into the delivery room is a PRIVILEGE that your lady gives you to. If she says NO, then you respect her and her wishes and do NOT throw a tantrum.

    People should be able to restrict anyone they want from being present in their room, regardless of the situation. I will say that the father should be allowed to information regarding the baby, though.


    Also, I love chicken parm, but only on penne pasta
    If you strike me down, I'll become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.

    This is a situation that is unlike all others and even if it seems like the majority of women want to deny it here on DP, the situation involves both the mother and the father of the child. It's not like the father is unknown and there is more than one potential father, but just the one guy that she has already admitted is the father of the child. You can consider her choice all wonderful if you want, but I don't.
