Their website is the most visited children's rights website in Canada. It contains substantial information on the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child and how it applies to a newborn infant's right to human identity and his/her right to a relationship with both biological parents.

They advocate for mandatory government paid paternity determination even before birth using non-invasive testing.

They also have some interesting information on human identity and major medical information rights for those people created using donor sperm or eggs.

U.S. Citizens Against Paternity Fraud (US-CAPF)

Men's Issues Online ( one of the largest in North America, Over 1,000 members)
Men's Issues Online (MIO) covers a broad variety of issues affecting men, including men's health and safety, divorce and custody, reproductive rights, media bias, workplace issues, male only selective service, domestic violence against men, education, unequal sentencing, and double standards against men.

MIO is intended to be an impetus to online and offline activism for men's advocates (of both sexes), in order to address these issues. It is not intended to be anti-woman, but rather seeks to treat men and women as individuals while eliminating the misandry (hatred of men) promulgated by gender and radical feminists. MIO also recognizes that misandry crosses national, racial, and ethnic lines, and is hence part of an international community of pro-male websites.

Pro-Choice for Men
Choice4Men is about:

  • The right to choose to become or not become a parent..
  • Men who have been trapped into parenting without their consent.
  • Men who want to be fathers but are not allowed to be involved in their children's lives.
  • Granting men the same rights as women.
  • Informed consent instead of involuntary servitude.
  • Fairness.
  • Women deciding what is best for themselves without obligating others.
  • Women accepting responsibility for their reproductive choice.
  • Draconian child and spousal support awards that wreck lives and futures.

Choice4Men is not about:

  • Restricting a woman's right to choose whether or not she chooses to become a parent.
  • Men deciding what is best for women.
  • Willing fathers walking away from their openly accepted relationship and financial responsibilities.

In the landmark ruling, Roe vs. Wade, the United States Supreme Court recognized the unfairness of forcing women to become parents. The Court recognized the irrevocable life changing nature of becoming a  parent and saw that the state had no right to impose that burden on anyone against their will. Choice4Men is about the same rights for men. Choice4Men is about the right to become or not become a parent. 

Men's Health
American men die 5.5 years sooner than women. This lifespan gender gap is the result of many disparities: gender health research, health insurance coverage, medical care utilization, and lifestyle factors, which all favour women. This moderated list is dedicated to eliminating health care disparities, so men can live longer, healthier lives.

Dads In Distress Inc. (an Australian organisation)
Dads in Distress is a dedicated support group of men (in Australia) whose immediate concern is to stem the present trend of male suicide due to the trauma of divorce or separation...

Current statistics that have been published, indicate too many men will take their own lives in preference to facing family, friends and importantly their own children with the failure of the relationship...

We aim to prevent this incidence from occurring by showing the men and the community at large that someone really cares...

American Coalition for Fathers and Children (ACFC)
The American Coalition for Fathers and Children is dedicated to the creation of a family law system, legislative system, and public awareness which promotes equal rights for ALL parties affected by divorce, and the breakup of a family or establishment of paternity.

We believe the best parent is both biological parents.

  • Mens' officer in every university to council men who suffer feminist harassment. By university staff and to provide support in cases of false allegations of rape.
  • 50% of primary school teachers to be men, at present boys are not showing the progress they did when primary schools were staffed equally by men and women.
  • Fair treatment of men by the media and advertisers.
  • Compensation for men falsely accused of rape or sexual harassment.
  • The abolition of sexual apartheid such as women-only car park spaces, swimming leisure sessions and library tables.

The National Center For Men (U.S.A.)
It was incorporated in 1987, is dedicated to the advocacy of men's equal rights. We educate the public about how men have been hurt by gender discrimination and we also counsel individuals and families who have been damaged by discrimination against men.

The National Center For Men has a long track record of public advocacy of men's equal rights, especially on radio and television talk shows. Our representatives have argued for men's rights, fathers' rights and men's reproductive choice. We have educated the public about male victims of domestic violence, men's health concerns and how men are often victimized by false accusation, particularly during divorce. We have resolutely made the case for men's equality in every area of life, including the right of men to make choices traditionally reserved for women.

National Center for Men's Voluntary Fatherhood Project (U.S.A.)
The laws that protect men and women from being forced into parenthood are highly discriminatory. Women are protected by abortion and abandonment laws. But when men are lied to about birth control or fertility, paternity and child support laws can disrupt their education and force upon them a future of distress associated with the unwanted child, support payments, the stigma of illegitimacy and a gut wrenching anguish that most people can't imagine.

This website is the portion of the National Center for Men website dealing specifically with paternity fraud and equality for men of reproductive equality.

96% of women are liars, honest

The Scotsman, Scotland's National Newspaper
December 2004

NINETEEN out of 20 women admit lying to their partners or husbands, a survey on attitudes to truth and relationships has found.

Eighty-three per cent owned up to telling "big, life-changing lies", with 13 per cent saying they did so frequently.

Half said that if they became pregnant by another man but wanted to stay with their partner, they would lie about the baby's real father.

Forty-two per cent would lie about contraception in order to get pregnant, no matter the wishes of their partner.

And an alarming 31 per cent said they would not tell a future partner if they had a sexual disease: this rises to 65 per cent among single women.
