UK: IVF mothers can name ANYONE as ‘father’ on birth certificate

Another blow to fatherhood: IVF mothers can name ANYONE as ‘father’ on birth certificate

Family values were under attack again last night with the news that single women having IVF will be able to name anyone they like as their baby’s father on the birth certificate.

New regulations mean that a mother could nominate another woman to be her child’s ‘father’.

The ‘father’ does not need to be genetically related to the baby, nor be in any sort of romantic relationship with the mother.

Critics said a woman could list her best friend on the birth certificate. The word ‘father’ may even be replaced with the phrase ‘second parent’.

The second parent, who will have to consent to being named, will take on the legal and moral responsibilities of parenthood.
