Matt O’Connor, founder Fathers4Justice, tells the Sunday Mirror:
A child needs a mother AND a father in their life.
And it is a fundamental human right that a child has access to their father.
It is sad that anyone wants to bring a baby into the world in the knowledge that they are denying them access to half of their family.
It isn’t just the dad who loses out but also the paternal grandmother and grandfather.
Unfortunately, women are stopping fathers becoming involved in children’s lives more and more with devastating consequences.
We would support this man in taking legal action to gain access to his child.
