This is my understanding, please correct me if I am wrong.
The way it stands now a woman can give her baby any last name she wants and put any man she wants in the "father" category. It doesn't matter whether or not he is the real dad or even if she has ever met him. Whatever the mom decides to put goes onto the official, government document birth certificate. There have been more than a few cases of child support where a man who is not the father of a baby ends up paying child support, or has to go through the court system to prove he is not the dad. Which is a lot of time, money, and hassle to put a "innocent" man through.
Doesn't it seem a little ridiculous that a woman can write down whatever she wants with no proof, and no repercussions if she is found to have put false information on a government document?

No,it is not. Important thing is that kid will have document what will show were she/he was born.
