Indiana strikes a blow

Possibly feeling left out because of all the attention given to Kansas, Indiana is doing its bit to live down to the worst Red State stereotypes:


Gays, lesbians and single Hoosiers would be prohibited from using medical science to help have a child under a bill being considered by an interim legislative committee. ...
But the part of the bill raising eyebrows involves assisted reproduction. It defines assisted reproduction as causing pregnancy by means other than sexual intercourse, including intrauterine insemination, donation of an egg, donation of an embryo, in vitro fertilization and transfer of an embryo, and sperm injection.
The bill then requires “intended parents” to be married to each other and specifically says an unmarried person may not be an intended parent.
A doctor can’t begin an assisted reproduction technology procedure that may result in a child’s being born until the intended parents of the child have received a certificate of satisfactory completion of an assessment required under the bill. [LINK]
Guess that's what they call being pro-life.
