It’s a truism that bad facts make bad law and nothing reaffirms it like this case (Express, 12/7/18).
A judge in England has ruled that a child may be adopted without ever letting the father know of its existence. The reason? Dad’s a bad person.
Now, Dad was only 14 years old when he had sex with a girl he’d met at school. She was 13. She says she didn’t know she was pregnant until she went into labor. Whatever the case, Dad doesn’t know he has a child and, according to Judge Cohen, he never will.
