Medical science has developed and provided absolute proof of non-paternity by exclusion with the probability higher than 71.6 per cent.The blood tests determining nonpaternity by exclusion are conclusive.Despite this conclusive and scientifically proven medical system of exclusion, legislatures and courts in many jurisdictions are still slow in accepting the irrebuttable proof of blood grouping tests. Resentment is strong in many jurisdictions against the admission of possibility of paternity upon all the evidence. The argument that if admitted, such evidence is prejudicial holds in many jurisdictions including Ohio.Legislatures and courts should take cognizance of the proof of blood tests in paternity cases in this country as it is being done in most other civilized countries in the world.
