Re: “A Father's Quest

This article makes it seem as if mothers always get custody, even when they are extremely unfit. Nothing could be farther from the truth, especially when it concerns mothers trying to protect themselves and their children from abuse. The American Judges Association found that abusive fathers get custody 70% of the time when they make an issue of custody in the court, and the mothers who are trying to protect themselves and their children don't get the luxury of "shared parenting" - they are often completely cut out of their children's lives.

Another point - fathers' rights activists, including the two quoted in this article, urge for states to adopt "shared parenting" (joint legal and physical custody) as presumptive law in all states, claiming it's fair for fathers and better for children than sole mother custody. This case in this article is yet another example of how "shared parenting" fails.

I hope East Bay Express will soon publish an article with a similar story about a protective mother who loses custody to an abusive, control-freak father, and then sees all her contact eliminated, but I won't hold my breath. Such articles are very unpopular in this current political climate that favors and exalts fathers, no matter their fitness.
