Mother May I?


Wow. This really does bear watching. Remember eugenics and fascism? Check this out (via Suburban Guerrilla):
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 through 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.
Here's the link (.pdf warning) to the draft legislation.

Whether this has any likelihood of being introduced much less passed, the left needs to SCREAM about this. The very fact it's being considered is obscene.

So, what if a married couple that had a baby gets divorced? Are they going to take the child away?

If a single woman accidentally gets pregnant, are they going to force her to have the baby and then, once it's born force her to give it up for adoption...because we all know that the assholes trying to do this are CERTAINLY not in favor of abortion...?

I'm starting to believe that the political right will not be appeased until they have complete and utter control over OUR DECISIONS and OUR BODIES. Bastards! This royally ticks me off! and you are right, this is OBSCENE!
