I think there are circumstances which pertain to stripping the father of rights.

I'm sure there are good reasons. However, given that this was done in Utah, the chances of him actually doing something wrong are slim.

Utah basically traffics babies. They adoption rules sway heavily in favor of the mother giving up rights. Women come to Utah just for that. And, regardless if you can prove the mother and the agency lied in court, fathers still have little or no rights. There's no grace period like in other states. Fathers have some three days to assert their rights. However, the mother and the agents don't actually give proof that they informed the father.

Would the law have been followed if the child had been from a white family?

That's the thing. The mother did follow the law. This is how Utah handles adoptions. They do this to white babies too.
