New Jersey Law Allows Mothers To Ban Fathers From Delivery Room
A new law in New Jersey is stirring the political pot as it has now made it legal for mothers to legally ban the fathers of their babies from the delivery room at their leisure.
Should a baby’s dad be allowed in the delivery room? New Jersey Superior Court Judge Sohail Mohammed thinks it should be up to the mom, and has ruled to ban dads from their child’s delivery room.
Women in New Jersey can now ban a father from being present in the delivery room while they are giving birth. This is the first ruling of it’s kind in the nation.
Superior Court Judge Sohail Mohammed ruled during a Feb. 2013 case that expecting mother’s have the right to privacy, and can ban the father of their child from the delivery room. This means in the future, fathers can be prevented from experiencing the miracle of their child’s birth.
“Any interest a father has before the child’s birth is subordinate to the mother’s interests,” Mohammed wrote in the case file. “Even when there is no doubt that a father has shown deep and proper concern and interest in the growth and development of the fetus, the mother is the one who must carry it to term.”
Dayyyyyum. Do you agree that a mother’s decisions with regard to her unborn child should be able to legally trump the father’s say so until the baby is born? Let’s discuss.
