If it were MOM and hubby who wanted initially to disestablish hubby's paternity and hold the biodad responsible for child support, would the justices have been so adamant about the "sanctity of the marriage" staying intact? If boiodad can be sought out for financial reasons, should he not, in turn, have the right to seek out his child for all the other reasons a man wishes to parent their child?
I just don't believe we should extend rights to one gender we are unwilling to extend to the other. If a WOMAN cheats, she still gets to raise the product of the tryst, but if a man has a child with a woman who cheats, his child is denied him completely? Seems like an obvious gender bias.
Adoptive parents ARE "real" parents. Sharing genes is not what makes you a "parent"!
