Judge says pregnant women can bar fathers from delivery room
Some dads-to-be could be kept out of the delivery room in New Jersey. In a decision released this week, a judge ruled pregnant women can block the biological father of their children from entering the room.
"The ruling stems from the case of a couple who got engaged after the woman became pregnant, but later broke up. That father sued for the right to be present at the birth of the child, though a judge disagreed."That's according to Superior Court Judge Sohail Mohammed. The case started back in November when Steven Plotnick sued to get Rebecca DeLuccia to inform him when she went into labor. He wanted access to the baby when it was born.The two went to court the same day DeLuccia went into labor and gave birth to a baby girl. Mohammed ruled that day all patients, including pregnant women, can decide who can be at their hospital bedside. The decision was released on Monday.

Well he does not nor do i think he should.
Dont get me wrong, i see why and how this could be emotional and i understand how it can be perceived as mean or sad but the bottom line is its the women going through a medical issue. She gets to control the room and her privacy, if she doesnt want somebody in the room, even the father thats her right.
