Henceforth and forevermore, all “pre-born” babies in the United States of America must have their DNA tested “in utero” to determine who is their real father. As the world has become sadly aware in the case of poor little Dannielynn Hope Marshall Stern, even a mother cannot be counted upon to record the true parentage upon a newborn’s birth record.
Aside from the scarring of her fragile psyche that will occur when the unfortunate child learns the facts of her birth, it is essential in this day and age for everyone to know beyond a shadow of a doubt, who is one’s true father. As a mother’s word on the matter can no longer be trusted, science has come to the rescue. It is essential for myriad health reasons to know one’s genetics that have passed from one’s father. “Who’s YOUR Daddy?”
The times and culture demand it. Petition your local legislature to get on the stick and get this new legislation written, passed and enforced. Better yet, let’s made it a national law. Everyone – petition Speaker Pelosi to get the ball rolling. “National In Utero DNA Testing” should be declared a right for every newborn American, so that no baby ever again will suffer the tragic scenario that resulted in poor little Dannielynn being misled as to her true Daddy.
Waving his arms and saying “I told you so” outside a Bahamian courthouse, photographer Larry Birkhead told reporters that DNA testing confirmed that he is the father of the late Anna Nicole Smith’s infant daughter, Dannielynn. Birkhead, who is Smith’s former boyfriend, and her lawyer-turned-partner, Howard K. Stern, attended a closed session Tuesday in the custody fight over the girl.
The baby, whose full name is Dannielynn Hope Marshall Stern, could inherit millions from the estate of Smith’s late husband, J. Howard Marshall II. The former model had been fighting the Texas oil tycoon’s family over his estimated $500 million fortune since his death in 1995.
