A Simple Swab of the Mouth Is All It Takes to Prove Paternity

I received a brochure this week from Genetic Technologies, Inc. It provides genetic testing services in accordance with the Uniform Parentage Act, according to its website. It offers a self-testing kit ($50.00) for anonymous in-home testing. I thought it was interesting that the website states New York residents are prohibited from ordering paternity tests directly. It was also fascinating to learn that forensic specimens to establish paternity can be obtained during surgery, from amniotic fluid, fetal tissue, and post-mortem blood.

The elephant is in the room. We must talk about it.
