In your Viewpoint about the vaccine-case mothers (WDDTY vol 14 no 6), you mention that the father has taken no interest in the child. Fathers are usually excluded if the mother has 'parent with care' rights, and courts will not usually get involved in day-to-day issues even when the absent parent wants to be involved.
This can lead to the absent parent (usually the father) taking legal action, which can sometimes seem over the top because the mother had not taken into consideration the wishes of the father.
Civil rights of fathers are being ignored on a daily basis, and there is a bias favouring mothers that is causing hurt and injustice throughout the UK.
Fathers-4-justice.org contains information on these issues. - B. McAuley, Devon
