Oh, Canada! Ontario court finds lying about taking the pill is A-okay.

A tip of the hat to Toy Soldier for this.

This form of paternity fraud is very common, and some have suggested more than 50% of conceptions result from women frustrating contraceptive methods, or lying about using them, as in this case.

Another form of paternity fraud, allowing or encouraging a man to assume or believe he’s the father of a child when he’s not, is a crime under the Fraud Act 2006. The Crown has never prosecuted a woman for this form of paternity fraud (or the other form, above) and only a few private prosecutions brought by men – on the grounds of emotional distress – have been successful. The amount of financial contributions a man has made towards his wife, and the children who aren’t biologically his, cannot be taken into account, and settlements are rarely over £20,000.

We covered the issue of paternity fraud in our 2015 general election manifesto (pp.52-4).

If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.

    Gentleman’s justice system. Why be surprised ?

    But if a man tells a woman he’s had a vasectomy after he’s had consensual sex with her it’s rape if she considers it so. Go figure, as they say over there.

    I’m sure someone with the patience and wit can rewrite the national anthem of this feminist shit-hole of a country. Here’s a start

    O for fuck’s sake Canada!
    You poor cuckolded land!
    True slavery in all thy sons command.
    etc. etc.

    Or maybe they should replace it with the Monty Python Lumberjack Song:

    He’s a Canuck and he’s OK
    He sleeps all night and he works all day.
    I cut down trees, I wear high heels
    Suspendies and a bra.
    I wish I’d been a girlie, just like my dear papa

    I can just imagine Justine Trudeau belting out that one.
