Read this carefully, and you will see that the parents were in a custody/visitation situation. How much you want to bet that this dude was never married to the mother? Obviously, this relationship didn't even survive much beyond the pregnancy either. And yet he apparently had "rights" anyway.
We've said it before, and we'll say it again. Unmarried dudes with no prior commitment to the mother or the children do not need or deserve visitation with infants. It's too much upheaval for infants, and in too many cases, these young idiots have no clue how to care for babies. Thus the deadly results that we see again and again...
