Judge Blocks Dad from Delivery Room

Women in New Jersey can block a baby’s father from the delivery room.

A state judge, citing a woman’s right to privacy, ruled the mother can decide who will be with them when giving birth.

In an opinion released Monday, the judge cited privacy rights outlined in two federal abortion cases.

The case was argued over the telephone last year in Passaic County while Rebecca DeLuccia went into labor and delivered a girl. Her estranged fiance, Steven Plotnick, wanted access to the baby at birth.

Plotnick’s attorney, Laura Nunnink, tells the Star-Ledger it was important to her client to bond with the baby.

DeLuccia’s lawyer, Joanna Brick, says DeLuccia was going to allow Plotnick to visit.
