We hold these truths to be self-evident. That ALL parents are created equal. We declare that fathers have these inalienable rights:
II. To not be wrongfully stereotyped, due to our marital status, as "deadbeat dads", and treated like criminals;
III. To not have custody/visitation rights jeopardized by false and/or unproven allegations of abuse, a tactic which women's groups such as N.O.W. openly endorse;
IV. To have the opportunity to spend just as much physical time with our children as the mothers;
V. To participate in all major events in the child's life, including birthdays, holidays, schooling, and social activities;
VI. To choose 50/50 joint custody as an alternative to paying child support;
VIII. To have the option of having child support issues decided by a jury, in conjunction with our Seventh Amendment right to a jury trial.
IX. To not be forced into poverty or have second families impoverished;
X. To have equal input in decisions regarding the manner in which the money is spent, and to have every penny of the child support money accounted for by the mother.
