The bottom line here is that they want to prevent lesbians, widows, non-Christians, fat ugly single women who can't get laid, ex-felons and Jodie Foster from having children. I know you think I am jumping to extreme conclusions but the litmus test is all spelled out in the legislation.
The procedures this new legislation would cover are as follows:
"Assisted reproduction", for purposes of IC 31-20, means a method of causing pregnancy other than sexual intercourse. The term includes:
(1) intrauterine insemination;
(2) donation of an egg;
(3) donation of an embryo;
(4) in vitro fertilization and transfer of an embryo; and(5) intracytoplasmic sperm injection.
"Sexual intercourse", for purposes of IC 31-20, means an act that includes any penetration of the female sex organ by the male sex organ"
Who qualifies for these procedures?
(b) The intended parents must be married to each other, and both spousesmust be parties to the action to establish parentage.
What is the litmus test?
(b) The assessment must follow the normal practice for assessments in a domestic infant adoption procedure and must include the following information:
Personal information about each intended parent, including the following: (I picked the most controversial and subjective, I can understand them not wanting a convicted “child seller” or molester to have kids):
-A description of the family lifestyle of the intended parents include a description of individual participation in faith-based or church activities, hobbies, and other interests.
-The intended parents' child rearing expectations and values.
What are values? Do they mean Republican values? Who are the value police that decide which values they want to be passed down? And if the state is asking the question about people's values and the participation in church or "faith-based" activities that must mean that they are looking for particular answers; otherwise, why ask? If that is the case doesn't that violate a separation of church and state, not to mention a thousand other privacy issues? As with the value police, who decides which church and faith based activities are and are not acceptable? Would that be Patricia Miller, a conservative Methodist Republican?
Don't get me wrong, I am all for making people take tests in order to be qualified to have children, but all people, no matter how the child would physically be created. Well off, educated, committed lesbians who desperately seek a child are not the people we need to be screening and singling out. The people who need to be subject to this test are the 17 year old, High School drop out, trailer trash meth-heads who got knocked up by their home made tattoo, pencil moustache sporting, jobless, whigger boy friend who is in prison and crack head welfare moms who already have 5 fatherless kids that the government supports. Remember, 50% of all heterosexual marriages end in divorce, 20% of all US children live in poverty, and approximately 1500 children die in this country every year due to child abuse in the home. Are those the "values" they prefer children to grow up with? Why don't you look up the number of all the "unwanted" children in same-sex households who get abused and indoctrinated with the gay agenda and see how bad their lives are compared to the kids I just mentioned. What this bill says to me is that they don't care about all the random assholes with a dick that are qualified to procreate as long as they have some skank to stick it in and they can conceive naturally. God forbid someone who actually wants and can support a child of their own try to pursue what is a right of the general dumb ass public.
One final question for the geniuses who drafted this piece of shit: what happens if the approved couple gets a divorce because the mother decided to become a lesbian? Do you make them give the child back? It would make all of this a big waste of time wouldn’t it?
