Should paternity fraud be a crime?

Liam_Hayden
A pregnant woman knows if she has had sex with men other than the alleged father. Under current law in most locations if he does not realize within two or three years he is stuck paying child support till the child is 18. In some instances, he might not even know a child was born, or like Anthony Sims of Michigan might not even have had sex with the woman at all. Still, if she puts his name on the paperwork he is "presumed" to be the daddy and the clock starts ticking.

This seems backwards to me, and is why paternity fraud is often called the one crime where the victim gets ordered to pay the perpetrator. How do you folks view this?
