NCFM Member Gordon Finley, Ph.D, Equal justice under law for fathers

Children do best with two loving and responsible parents, at least one of whom should be their father!

The letter below was published in The Hill on Wednesday, June 14, 2017.

Equal justice under law for fathers

I applaud Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and her colleagues on the United States Supreme Court for seeking gender equality in citizenship law (“Supreme Court strikes down gender-based citizenship law,” June 12, 2017).

Engraved above the public entrance to the United States Supreme Court are the words: “Equal Justice Under Law.”

All fathers are entitled to equal justice under law in all of the nation’s courts — including family courts.

Can the nation now move on to adoption law, where birth mothers and birth fathers are treated totally differently based solely on their gender and which often leads to heartbreaking legal cases and a lose-lose-lose situation for all members of the adoptive triad —birth parents, adoptive parents and the child?

In the future, gender equality and equal justice under law along with the best interests of the child must jointly prevail in adoption law.

This decision is a step in the right direction and comes just in time for Father’s Day!

    UNDER THE LAW IS WHAT IT SAYS BUT IF YOU ARE ILLEGAL THEN YOU GO BACK PARENTS OR NOT. I WAS BORN IN TEXAS AND I NEVER LIVED AROUND MEXICANS, BLACKS, BUT MY ONE BROTHER MIGHT BE MEXICAN I NEVER KNEW. WE WERE SEPARATED AT THE ORPHANGE AFTER OUR MOTHER GAVE US UP.
    YOU CAN STAY IF YOU ARE BORN IN THIS COUNTRY I’M A VET AND I FOR ONE AM FOR THE RIGHTS OF THE LAW NOT AGAINST.
    KIDS ARE AT THE MERCY OF ICE OR ANY OTHER LAW ENFORCEMENT.

waybackmachineOver the years millions of people worldwide have visited a National Coalition For Men website. Also over the years the site has changed dramatically, been taken down, moved, and otherwise uprooted. In those processes much information was lost, not recovered, and does not appear on this site.
