I wasn’t talking about a mother giving up rights

I wasn’t talking about a mother giving up rights, I was referring to a father wanting to give up his rights. A paycheck is not involved. The child is not going to be adopted, she lives with her mother.

And the mother does not agree with any parent wanting to do this (under normal conditions). But, thank you for your reply anyway.

You miss my point

If a mother can give up herrights, why can’t a father? I don’t want to know what the law is, because it’s obviously wrong because it treats males different from females. I want to know WHY is it morally alright for a mother to do, but not a father? Why the double standard?

This is not to say I agree with any parent giving up their rights either, but it’s not for me to tell anyone else what to do or not to do.

Re: giving up parental rights

If a mother can give up not only her own parental rights, but the fathers’ as well by giving a child up for adoption, then a father *should* be able to at least voluntarilly give up his own rights. Oh, but wait, there’s probably a paycheck involved. I guess that changes everything.
