Parental Rights

When Registering the Birth of a Child

A surprising experience from a follower on our Facebook page:

Jessica Y: "My son went with his girlfriend to register the birth of my new grandson recently only for the registrar to ask the mother, "are you sure you want dads details on the birth certificate as this will give him parental rights" 😳 ... She was quite apologetic for having to ask the question, but apparently she has to by LAW 😡"

Suffragents: "Disgusting Registrar who should be reported for being anti-family and sexist."

Nigel P: "Surely it's a right of the father and not one to be given an opt out!"
