Many of these fatherhood programs are the impetus to millions of young mothers losing custody of their infants. A lot of these programs provide information to men inciting them with hatred against mothers and encouraging them to work the legal system in various ways in order to get custody of infants away from their mothers. Using all kinds of statistical lies about mothers, especially single mothers, they incite men into believing that children will be better off with fathers and instigate them filing for custody. 30% of the pool of custodial fathers is composed of these never-married, recreational sperm donors.
Even the abductions of babies is used as a tactic since these programs advise these never-married fathers of their so-called ‘rights’ which include in some states being able to race down to court and file for custody themselves if the mother hadn’t already done so herself. Since a good number of states consider a father, even if never married, to have Joint Custody with mother if she hasn’t gone down to court to file for legal custody. If they are not in such a state, the programs give the fathers legal advice on how to get a fathers rights attorney to help them wrestle custody of these infants away from their mothers.
I’ve spoken with and heard from numerous mothers who have lost custody of their children in this manner, many of them nursing infants, btw. Some of these mothers have not seen their babies again due to these abductions and these programs incite fathers to do this. Even sending your baby with the father or any of his relatives for a brief visit out of your home can end with a judicially-sanctioned abduction of your child.
One mother was telling me how she sent her week old nursing infant for a ‘visit’ with the father (claiming he wanted to take the child to his sister’s house) and she didn’t see the child for weeks afterward, the father simply disappeared with the baby. BTW, she went to the police, the FBI, that 1-800 Missing, etc., and no one would help her. As it turns out she lived in a state where both parents have joint custody immediately upon birth. So even though his name was not on the birth certificate, this scenario was not considered an abduction. Eventually her child was returned because this man had to return to active duty, he was on leave from Iraq. But quess what, that didn’t have to happen that way. She might have never seen that kid again if that sneaky dirtbag wasn’t afraid of being classified as AWOL.
I happen to believe that Christopher Rhodes (who murdered 7 year old Jerica) was probably also involved with one of these fatherhood programs, as many of these hate mongers against mothers are active in upstate New York. AND that’s what they are, in spite of the propaganda they hid behind, nothing but hate mongers. This aspect of the Rhodes murder case was never properly addressed in the media, so to this day we do not know the names of any of the people involved with inciting this man to fight for custody of a child that was not even his. Ultimately these monsters escaped detection and punishment due to the media neglecting to properly investigate this case.
These fatherhood programs should be immediately disbanned, the tax-payer money returned and investigations should be launched to see how many of the employees have been actively involved in stirring up hatred against mothers under the guise of helping men be better fathers. The whole thing is a racket to make money off of children, as well as a well oiled propaganda campaign against mothers.
Additionally in states where they are the most successfully with these establishment of paternity claims, the single mothers’ birthrate has dropped drastically, by 20% or more. Since single mothers are the engine of growth for the African American community, I believe a closer investigation will reveal that the black community’s population is actually the one falling in those states.
AND don’t think that’s not a lot of the motivation for these programs as well…
I have attached a link to an earlier post on my blog about this situation.
Study Ties State Laws, Unwed Child Births
By REBECCA COOK, Associated Press Writer
Researchers at the University of Washington and Columbia University said Friday that child support laws' power to reduce single parenthood is an unintended consequence of a policy designed to help children and cut public welfare costs.
“Unintended” only the very gullible would believe this crap knowing the history of racism here. Another interesting read for those who haven’t noticed the link between these hate campaigns being waged against mothers and lower birth rates for certain segments of our population.
Anyway here is the article regarding a fatherhood program below. Don't be fooled by the language they use describing the program however.

Program helps teen boys adjust to fatherhood
By TRACI SHURLEY
STAR-TELEGRAM STAFF WRITER
ARLINGTON — Becoming a father at 17 meant big changes for Oscar Perez.
Going to school was no longer about having fun with his friends. He would have to work hard to graduate from Bowie High School, get a job and help support his daughter.
Fortunately for Perez, he had support from his family, his girlfriend and an innovative program run by the Arlington school district’s Pregnancy Related Services office.
For the past five years, the office, which provides dropout prevention for teen parents and abstinence-education services for younger students, has been using a chunk of a yearly $320,000 federal grant to focus on teen dads.
The fatherhood program serves about 50 to 80 teenagers at a time, providing support groups and educational sessions at each of the district’s high school campuses and lots of other one-on-one contact. The teen fathers and fathers-to-be learn about parenting basics like changing diapers and feeding as well as how to register with the state child-support office or establish paternity.
Perez said just gathering with others who were going through similar experiences was a source of support.
“We would talk about what was going on in our lives,” he said. “Everybody tried to help out one another.”
The Pregnancy Related Services office gives support and parenting education to more than 500 adolescent mothers and pregnant teens each year through the work of five Pregnancy Education and Parenting counselors, a nurse and other staff. All the counselors have master’s degrees, and their attention to the students’ needs is intense.
“We’re keeping kids in school. That’s our ultimate goal,” said Tori Sisk, coordinator for Pregnancy Related Services. “If we have kids dropping out of schools, we don’t want it to be because of pregnancy-related issues.”
Though the program receives an average of $200,000 in funding from the state each year and some is available from the school district, the federal funds let it do more. The grant funds a salary for a sixth counselor assigned to the boys program.
It also supplements programs for teenage mothers and their children.
Funding for the original grant, from the federal Office of Population Affairs, ran out in July. But this month, officials were notified that Pregnancy Related Services will receive an additional $1.85 million over the next five years. Only nine such awards were made, and just one other dropout-prevention program for teen parents in Texas, Dallas’ Promise House, received a similar grant.
Because administrators are still learning the best way to track the fatherhood program’s success, anecdotes and the results of focus groups made up of teen dads are the strongest indicators of the program’s impact.
Keith McGee, the counselor assigned to the fatherhood program, said he usually contacts boys who are about to become fathers after one of the girls’ counselors or a teacher points them out. He talks to them about what pressures they’re facing and offers help.
Perez married the mother of his child less than a year after their daughter, Mariah, was born. Being parents hasn’t been easy on them, but both graduated and are buying a home in south Arlington. Oscar Perez works in Home Depot’s freight department and hopes to attend Tarrant Community College. Deven Perez, who works in a local school cafeteria, is pregnant with their second child.
“When we first found out she was pregnant [with Mariah] a lot of people were ” said Oscar Perez. “But we like, ‘You’ve just messed up your whole life,’ didn’t look at it like that. We look at it as we started a new life.”
