The fundies are at it again, in the name of 'protecting the children'.

It's probably been made clear that i don't want kids.

That said, i still believe in the right for everyone else to have them if they so desire.

However, apparently a bunch of legislators in Indiana disagree.

Proposed bill: Only women who are married will be considered for the "gestational certificate" that must be presented to any doctor who facilitates the assisted 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.

(If the above link doesn't work, here's the text of the bill in PDF format.)

Said screening process of the lifestyle of the intended parents which includes "individual participation in faith-based church activities". (copied from page 9 of the bill.)

This is clearly an attempt by the fundies to prevent gays/lesbians from having kids. Slippery slope here, too; just you watch. Once this is passed, the next thing they'll do is amend it to include natural pregnancies.
