Boston Globe On The Rise Of DNA Paternity Testing

The Boston Globe printed this article about the rise in DNA paternity testing and its social effects. The tone of the article is almost alarmist, suggesting that thousands of children are going to end up in poverty if men are given the choice to decline parenthood to children that aren't theirs. I think most women know who the real father of their child is or could be, so what's the problem? If mothers are dishonest about naming the father of the child, it should be they who are seen as responsible for ruining support for the child.
