The inevitable side effect of DNA testing to verify whether a man is indeed the father of a child: it can also verify whether or not a man is indeed not the father of a child. Amazingly, some people have a problem with that:
DNA tests are an anti-feminist appliance of science, a change in the balance of power between the sexes that we’ve hardly come to terms with. And that holds true even though many women have the economic potential to provide for their children themselves… Uncertainty allows mothers to select for their children the father who would be best for them. The point is that paternity was ambiguous and it was effectively up to the mother to name her child’s father, or not… Many men have, of course, ended up raising children who were not genetically their own, but really, does it matter … in making paternity conditional on a test rather than the say-so of the mother, it has removed from women a powerful instrument of choice.
I suppose this is a step above the usual feminist definition of “choice,” which means “the ability to vacuum out the contents of one’s womb with impunity, preferably at public expense,” but I have to figure that if infanticide is no more than an inconvenience, then mere fraud must be utterly insignificant.
