Petition To consider the removal of parental responsibility for absent parents.

As a single parent, I believe I should behold the right to make decisions based on the benefit of my child solely as her primary and only care giver.

More details

For example, if an absent father makes the choice to pay no attention their child, I don’t think it's acceptable for any single parent to have to resort to permission from said father regarding decisions the mother wishes to make such as health, schooling and country of residency, if it will work in the best interests of the child.
