So it might be a strange question but one i need to ask on behalf of my younger sister who is pregnant with her first child....
A friend of hers told her that the baby's dad has a right to be present at birth...Normally i would have to agree with her friend but i dont think the friend knows what the situation is....
So to begin with,
When my sister told the ex she was preggers he went crazy and told her she had to have an abortion, he would not let her go to work because he was taking her down to get it done...He wouldn't let her leave the house to meet me for coffee, i was going to go get her anyway...He eventually let her come meet me and i wouldn't let her go home to her house (she didn't want to go anyway)...After my partner got home from work, they went and collected her things from the house along with another friend....In the process the ex smashed my sisters flat screen TV and went to do something to my Sister (dunno what i wasn't there), so my partner who is a fully qualified/trained security guard got him to the ground, held him and waited for the police...Once they came my sister, partner and friend finished packing her things...While doing that they found a note the ex had written basically saying he wanted nothing to do with the baby it wasn't his. He wanted my sister but not the baby...(thats putting it Politically correct)
My sister didn't plan this pregnancy, she was on the pill so obviously this baby is meant to be...My sister wants him to be involved with the child later on (only for the childs sake), just not at the birth
Personally i think he gave up any rights to the baby when he tried getting her to abort and after writing the note...
What does everyone think?
