You say, "That's her business and her secret." Abby, don't you think a child has the right to know who his real father is? And don't you think that when the child grows up, he should have the right to get in touch with his real father if he chooses to do so? Also, maybe the father wants to support his child. Women talk about WOMEN'S rights. How about MEN'S rights? MEN'S L1BDEI1 DEAR LIBBER: Fortunately lor possibly unfortunately), since women literally carry the load alone and deliver it, it is their prerogative as to whether or not to inform the father. And not all fathers are Milling to own up to it. But read on for anothpr rnlightentd viewpoint: DEAR ABBY: Concerning the unmarried mother-to-be who is on welfare and prefers to keep the identity of her baby's father a secret: According to you, it may be her business and her secret, but that baby becomes the taxpayers' burden, and we taxpayers are sick and tired of supporting illegitimate children. With all the resources available to prevent pregnancies, there is no excuse for any sexually active female to bear a child! And why should the father be excused from the responsibility of supporting his child? Yet, you would lei taxpayers assume this responsibility because some 21-year- old female decides she wants to be a mother. We are five registered nurses. Sign us SHIRLEY. MARY ALICE, LOIS. MARGIE AND JACQUELINE DEAR ABBY: My husband's new teeth don't fit him right and he talks funny, but that's not the problem. Every time 1 ask him to repeat something, be gels mad at me and says, "Why don't you get a hearing aid?" Abby, there is nothing wrong with my hearing. It's the way he talks. Lately I have to be careful not to ask him to repeat anything for fear he'll take my head olf. How can I handle this problem without starling World War III? AL'SWIFE DEAR WIFE: Make a deal with Al. Tell him that you will have your hearing tested if he'll go back to the dentist who made his new teeth and get an adjustment.
