To whom it should concern at
Your article "Paternity Test: Are You the One?" at <http://www.drug-education-resource.com/teendrugabuse/Paternity.asp
> contains and promotes false information.
According to its title, the article is ostensibly addressed to fathers --
more exactly to men wrongfully being duped into accepting and living-up-to
the responsibilities of fatherhood. That particular concern is
conventionally and more precisely called paternity fraud.
Astoundingly, the term "paternity fraud" has not been used even once in your
article, although it is the header for the link collection appended to the
article. Yet, even though Fathers for Life contains a large amount of
information on paternity fraud of which you are aware, you chose not to
display a link to
http://fathersforlife.org/ToC_paternity.htm but displayed instead a
link to the home page of Fathers for Life -- along with a statement that
places Fathers for Life outside of the context of paternity fraud.
The body of your article does not live up to the expectations implied by its
title. Although the very first paragraph should focus on men who are
victims of paternity fraud, it appears to express sympathy for promiscuous
women who are not sure who the fathers of their children may be, turning
what once was thought of as crimes (promiscuity and adultery) into the
perception of women as victims. Thereby you attempt to white-wash
abominable behaviour and to convert it into the justification for
entitlement to child-support/alimony income for women.
There are more examples of such intellectual dishonesty and disingenuousness
in your article. Take for example the opening sentence in the second
paragraph in the article:
Since the beginning of modern technology, paternity test [sic, it should
be "testing"] has quite gained popularity since rape cases have
escalated to greater height.
That claim is wrong, for a number of reasons.
For one thing, the advent of modern technology predates the advent of
DNA-testing for paternity by more than a hundred years.
Another aspect of the issues addressed by your statement is that rape cases
per 100,000 cap. have seen virtually no increases over the years (due to the
deliberate, feminist-driven obfuscation of that fact, beginning in about the
mid-1970s, hard and honest statistics on that are increasingly difficult and
almost impossible to come by).
It is not the number of rapes but the number of *wrongfully-alleged* rapes
(correspondingly, the number of wrongful convictions of men) that increased
enormously. That is on account of the influence of people who promote the
unsubstantiated and unjustified claim that the annual number of rape cases
has risen to astronomical proportions, even if they are only people like you
who help to spread feminist-inspired anti-male propaganda by stating nothing
more than that "rape cases have escalated to greater height."
Moreover, rather than the wrongfully-alleged and fictitious increases of the
number of rapes, it is the increasing incidence rates of promiscuity and
adultery and their consequences that cause DNA-testing for paternity to
become not only ever more popular but a necessity. In view of that,
paternity testing must be made not only popular but *mandatory* upon the
birth of every child.
The third paragraph in your article seems to provide more equitable
treatment of the sexes, but only deceptively so. It mentions "...women who
just don't know who is the father of their baby," and "Paternity test[ing]
is also common in situations wherein the man does not accept the truth that
he is the natural father of a certain child."
The implication of the last sentence in that paragraph is that men have the
duty of accepting the responsibility of fatherhood once they have been
fingered as the fathers of specific children. However, as you should know
if you are worth your salt, "the truth" of a given man being correctly
fingered as the father of a given child in a contested paternity claim is
far from being certain. (See:

Given that it is well-known that paternity fraud is all-pervasive and that
concerns about it are the major reason why paternity testing is not only
important but extremely advisable for ascertaining the paternity upon the
birth of every child, it is inexcusable that you posted at your website an
article about paternity testing whose basic premises are very and perhaps
even deliberately misleading.

Carey Roberts writes about paternity fraud, for example:
Consider the paternity scam. Here’s how it works:
Find any dim-witted man to get you pregnant. Then look up the name
of some unsuspecting Joe who’s got a steady job – it doesn’t matter
that you never met the poor bloke. Put his name on the baby’s birth
Now cross your fingers and hope the man is out of town when the
sheriff delivers the papers. In California, such default judgments
account for 70% of paternity decisions, according to a 2003 study by
the Urban Institute.
