Re: Dads rights: naming, circing, etc?

I actually think that legally eiher parent has the right to sign off on paperwork regarding the baby without the other one's knowledge or consent. I think the hospital just assumes when the one parent signs that the other one knows and consents and if not then that is between the couple. I think that legally a father could sign off on a procedure like circ'ing without the mother having to sign also. Now as for name or birth certain, I dunno. I think hat the only reason mom can "choose" without dad is that no one can say "I don't know who the mother is.'. So there has to be a way to do the bc without the dad but there is no way to do the bc without mom.
