Indiana Lawmaker Wants to Control Access to Pregnancy

According to (link now stale) Indiana State Senator Patricia Miller thinks the state should have a say as to whether you can start a family through any means but the old fasioned way. If she has her way, anyone who wants to use a donated egg, in vitro fertilization, artificial insemination or any other doctor assisted method would need approval to proceed.

To have access to these services, women would need to provide a certificate of assesment. The requirements for obtaining such a certificate are to be married to a man and proof that she participates in faith-based or church activities. Several other factors could be taken into account including lifestyle.

Ms. Miller must be Virginia Delegate’s soul mate. This is exactly the sort of legislation I’d expect to see out of him. Come to think of it, if he is re-elected, we might just see it here in Virginia at that. When did the Taliban become so active in American politics?

  1. It has been reported that one day later, the bill has been withdrawn. That’s good news, but it’s still scary that some people think the government should be telling us who is allowed to get pregnant.
