Every week I hear some case of someone who's been wrongly convicted and did a good amount of time, only to have DNA prove the conviction wrong. A DNA test has been refused by the courts multiple times until they finally approve it, the convicted would have to wait years through this process. Some don't never get an approval. IMO .... I think Judges and the courts should be left out of the decision to allow or disallow any DNA test, and it should rather just be mandatory. Then you have DNA to prove whether someone is actually the father. This should be mandatory for two reasons. First, for clarification from the very beginning of who is and/or who is not the father. Secondly, so it doesn't cause any backlash from the mother when a man requests a test. In the short and/or long run, I see this saving tax dollars too (although that's just an assumption).
