BBC NEWS | UK | Mother can keep birth a secret

From the page: “A woman who became pregnant after a one-night stand has been given the right to keep the birth a secret from the father.

The Court of Appeal ruling came after a county court ordered the 20-year-old to tell both her parents and the father.

The three appeal judges agreed “the ultimate veto” over who is told about the birth lay with the mother.

Fathers’ groups said the ruling treated the child as the property of the mother “to be disposed of as she sees fit”.”

I’m really not sure how I feel about this, on one hand I feel it’s a matter of choice, but on the other, I know as a father I should need to know.
