Indiana - Unauthorized Reproduction bill has been drafted

Booman Tribune ~ Boo!
Republican lawmakers are drafting new legislation that will make marriage a requirement for motherhood in the state of Indiana, including specific criminal penalties for unmarried women who do become pregnant "by means other than sexual intercourse."

According to a draft of the recommended change in state law, every woman in Indiana seeking to become a mother throu gh assisted
reproduction therapy such as in vitro fertilization, sperm donation, and egg donation, must first file for a "petition for parentage" in
their local county probate court.

Only women who are married will be considered for the "gestational certificate" that must be presented to any doctor who facilitates the pregnancy. Further, the "gestational certificate" will only be given to married couples that successfully complete the same screening process currently required by law of adoptive parents.

As it the draft of the new law reads now, an intended parent "who knowingly or willingly participates in an artificial reproduction procedure" without court approval, "commits unauthorized reproduction, a Class B misdemeanor." The criminal charges will be the same for physicians who commit "unauthorized practice of artificial reproduction."

Time for politics. And yes it is real. This country is getting more embarrassing all the time. No, it probably won't pass but the fact that anyone (and by anyone I mean Republican Senator Patricia Miller) would even write this Taliban shit is disgusting. Yes, I did put the emphasis on Republican. Don't like me picking on your party? Then get these psychopaths out of your party. I've said it before before and I'll say it again. If you call yourself a Republican and you aren't a born again Christer you are deluded. For the love of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, please get your party under control! In all fairness to the Republicans, this lady ain't just an embarrassment to your party. She is an embarrassment to humanity.

Oh, another fun part of the bill in case you think the Christer jab was uncalled for...
