New Jersey Moms Can Now Legally Ban Dads from Delivery Room [POLL]

Following a historic court ruling, a pregnant woman in New Jersey can now legally ban the father of her child from the delivery room.  Is it a fair decision?

Rebecca DeLuccia, of Passaic County, went into labor last year. Her fiance, Steven Plotnick, wanted to be in the delivery room at the time of the baby’s birth.  That request was being hashed out over the phone even as Rebecca delivered her baby girl.

Now, based on a woman’s right to medical privacy, a state judge ruled moms-to-be can block a baby’s father from the delivery room.

That judge also cited privacy rights outlined in two federal abortion cases.

Plotnick’s attorney says it was important to her client that he be in the delivery room to bond with his daughter, according to People.com.

DeLuccia’s lawyer says Plotnick was eventually allowed to visit.
