Calls for routine paternity tests at birth

A fathers' rights group believes paternity testing should be carried out at birth, to avoid any questions later.

Includes a few interesting points:

A quarter of men who have these tests done find that they aren't the father of the child;
The number of paternity tests taken in Australia has doubled in a year;
As more health treatments in future will be based on an individual's genetics, pressure for routine testing will only grow.
