Red face Indiana Republicans want to regulate childbirth

Pathetic.

Quote:
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.

As it the draft of the new law reads now, an intended parent "who
knowingly or willingly participates in an artificial reproduction
procedure" without court approval, "commits unauthorized
reproduction, a Class B misdemeanor." The criminal charges will be
the same for physicians who commit "unauthorized practice of
artificial reproduction."

The change in Indiana law to require marriage as a condition for
motherhood and criminalizing "unauthorized reproduction" was
introduced at a summer meeting of the Indiana General Assembly's
Health Finance Commission on September 29 and a final version of the
bill will come up for a vote at the next meeting at the end of this
month.

W-h-a-t?

It seems Republicans in Indiana want to follow the example of Communist China in regulating childbirth.

India has a long way to go before they'll be seen as a superpower in the world's eyes. Sounds cliche, but a booming economy doesn't necessarily equal respect. And putting women at such a degrading level is probably the worst setback a country who's looking for worldwide respect can do.

This is about the state of Indiana, not the country of India.

What you've said applies 100% to what the Republicans are doing to America.

Assuming this is not a hoax, it is a law that will never survive. Still, I guess you have to fight against these things to make sure they die.

Since I'm lazy, is Indiana a Republican dominated legislature? I find it hard to believe that anyone seriously thinks this will ever be an effective law but I believe you that there is a Bill going forward. I'm just wondering about its prospects of being passed. Even if it is passed, it would clearly be unconstitutional.

If I remember correctly, I think it was the swing state in the last election that the Republicans took after a long counting process. So it is Republican, I think.

Indiana has been pretty steadily republican I think.

I counted the house as 52-48 for Republicans and the senate as 34-17 for Republicans.

Anything that discourages people to have more kids is a good thing. I'm pro-abortion and that too is a good thing. I'm against these fertility treatment drugs because it discourages people to adopt children and can cause mutliple births. I'm an enviromentalist and it pains me to see how overpopulation & greenhouse gases harm the environment.
As for India (and yes I know this is about Indiana) I wish that they are more serious in regulating childbirth, like China. Maybe scientists should develop drugs that ensure that people can only have up to certain number of kids. Already scientists are saying that the quality of spermatozoids in males is decreasing could eventually contribute to less children being born.
