Subject: RE: BS: No 'right to choose' this...
I think that if it were legally acceptable for one parent to waive the other's obligations, then the situation would be much clearer. I find it unlikely that a father's wish not to pass on his genetic material, absent all other factors, would be given much importance. Ergo, the logical thing to do is modify the law so that one parent may choose to waive the obligations of the other in such cases as this.
