Jesus Adam, I thought Arkansas had a bunch of wackos…

Boy, those Indiana videos you do are really being put into perspective:

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.

Or, in more real language, from the Pandagon blog:

Indiana’s legislature is considering a law mandating that a man better get laid if a baby is being made. Seriously, that’s pretty much how the bill is worded.

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.”

Damn those doctors and their playing god in baby making. There’s only one holy way to get the baby juice to the baby juice recepticle, and that’s with the lights off in the missionary position.

    Welcome to Indiana: No Queers Allowed; Single Parents Suck!

    Proud. That’s the only thing I can think of after reading all the stuff about this today. Just really, really proud to be a Hoosier.

    New Jersey feels pretty good right now.

    I never post a comment on my husband’s site, but wow – I can’t contain myself. I know this is one of those bills proposed just to make good on some promise in exchange for money, but this is truly disgusting. I’ve often stated that I thought you should have to get a license for be a parent, but I’m mostly joking and I meant everyone. As a person who can’t just get pregnant the normal way, I’m truly disgusted and appalled. So if you’re on welfare but you’ve got a good uterus; keep ’em coming. But if you’re someone who is a contributing member of society (you almost have to be above average financially to pay for such treatments); we question you’re ability and therefore you must be judged. I guess if god wanted you to be a parent, you’d be able to have them naturally? That makes a lot of sense.

    Even if all of those laws were enacted, they would only last as long as it would take for a case challenging them to reach the Supreme Court.
