Birth Father Rights and Legislative Interventions.
Finley, Gordon E.
Adoption Quarterly, v6 n1 p1-5 2002
This editorial critiques legislation as social intervention, focusing on Florida's new law requiring birth mothers to place legal notices about some of the circumstances surrounding the child's conception and adoption in the newspaper of the community where the baby was conceived. The intended and unintended consequences of such legislation are highlighted, as are good and bad means of implementing interventions, and the unresolvable issue of whose rights prevail. (KB)
