    A midwife accidentally switched your baby at birth with someone else’s, five years after it happened, would you want your biological child back? Explain the reasoning behind your response.

    Yes, because I'd want what is deemed my actual baby. But then I might give it up for adoption, if I can't afford to raise a child. It would depend on my situation in life, at that moment.

    The blood of the covenant is thicker than the water of the womb, but it all depends on circumstance. At five years of age you're not likely to have developed a real intellectual relationship with your current child, though you will likely have an intense familial connection with them and a deep responsibility to their happiness and wellbeing. However your bond with your child will be leagues ahead of the bond you'll make with your birth child at first instance.

    I also assume the other family would have a say on their wishes. Ultimately, unless both parties were absolutely satisfied with the outcome it would likely be an issue for the courts to decide. In Scotland, if a case like this were ever to arise the wellbeing of the child will be absolute, and I imagine a judge would award parental rights and responsibilities to you over you current child, though it depends on how well your relationship is established.

    In either case, I don't think there would be a legal or moral basis to shut either party away from their birth child altogether. I think ideally this sort of thing would exponentially strengthen the relationship and familiarity between two whole families who, until recently, were complete strangers.

    Yes because 5 year rule.

    It's like the 5 second rule, but it's about swapped kids instead of fallen food.

    Yes I'd want my child back, and I'm sure the other family would want their child back as well once they found out.

    What if you found out your 25 yr old son, was swapped at birth?

    Would you try to swap him with the other one?

    At 25 years of age you have your own independence and bodily autonomy as an adult human, so nobody would have the capacity to 'swap' you with anybody. I don't see why you would have to cut off contact with the person you raised just to get close to your biological child either, since those kinds of relationships aren't exclusive.

    Oh wow, I never thought of it that way.




    On topic,

    what if you were 60, and on your death bed, and found out that your 40 yr old son, was swapped at birth by some bitch. Would you try to swap him and his children for the other child and his children?

    I don't want to have kids and a wife(probably), so I don't care:).
