No, I do not agree with this law.

Good for this young man for standing up for himself and his son.

I don't like it.  I can't quite put my finger on it.  I feel like if a man WANTS to be father to his child, and isn't a bad person, he should have a say in what happens to his child.  But I'm not for taking away the mother's rights either.  I just don't really know how to feel about this.

I like how they called him a felon. Ummmm the wife is a felon as well then. This law is ridiculous.

In some states the child belongs to the husband legally as seems to be the case with this state. Now this allows that the woman can choose to allow the biological dad to raise the child which is an improvement over the previous law.

However, I do not think extramarital affairs should be felonies and should only be under tort law.

 I think this is rediculous.
