Good news. Women give blood samples at a number of points in pregnancy, this test should be among the first.
We covered the egregious crime of paternity fraud in our last election manifesto (pp.52-4). The Crown has never prosecuted any women for paternity fraud under the Fraud Act 2006, despite the Child Maintenance Service alone learning of several hundred cases every year of mothers identifying men as the fathers of their children, but later paternity tests (which the men have to pay for) prove those men aren’t the biological fathers.
I’ve heard an explanation on behalf of some of the mothers, that they were mistaken as to who the fathers were. Makes you proud to be British, doesn’t it? There must be huge numbers of men who mistakenly accept they’re the fathers of the children in question, and financially support them for 20+ years.
If everyone who read this gave us just £3.00 – or even better, £3.00 or more, monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.
