What the father failed to do in this situation was draft up a contractual agreement with the other woman in this case, with her agreeing to reimburse him for any expenses or support related to the child in perpetuity.
Which would still leave him out-of-pocket until he could collect from her, but it would (probably, IANAL, your state or provincial laws may vary) be a legal arrangement.

Because that invites reciprocation of that attitude from other countries. Most people tend to get angry when foreigners from anywhere come into their country and intentionally disrespect the local cultural mores and laws.
I'll give you an easy, hyperbolic example:
By that same argument, how do you feel about Sudanese refugees performing female genital mutilation just down the street from where you live? How do you feel about them snorting in contempt at you when you show outrage, saying: "If a country doesn't respect my cultural norms, then why respect it at all?"
"Starfish" and "Blindsight" are brilliant, dark pieces of claustrophobic sci-fi. I'm stunned that neither has been optioned for movies yet.
Uh, don't you mean "Where that big light will be eight and a half minutes from now"?
I was way more excited about this until I realized I'd misread "psychics" as "physics". Sigh.
And what about those of us who already had our G+ accounts deleted for refusing to use our real names?
What's this plaxinum you speak of? I'm very curious.
As a non-american, I will continue to financially support Wikileaks (to a modest $20 a year, they're part of my christmas charity allotment), because while you may see this as damaging to american interests, I see it as furthering the interests of the entire world. I too, have looked through a good chunk of the released documents, so far. What I found allotted to "The stuff we already knew, but here's the details" of america's dirty laundry. Meh.
Long live wikileaks. I *do*, however, hope their next big releases focus on other countries, not just the USA. The current amero-centrism of wikileaks major releases is rather disappointing, but is probably more the result of opportunity than it is country-specific targeting.
