Ya better drop it!

Indiana State proposed, then dropped, a bill that would have prohibited gays, lesbians, and single people from using the medical sciences to assist them in procreation. According to the Indianpolis Star:

Under her proposal, couples who need assistance to become pregnant -- such as through intrauterine insemination; the use of donor eggs, embryos and sperm; in vitro fertilization, embryo transfer or other medical means -- would have to be married to each other. In addition, married couples who needed donor sperm and eggs to become pregnant would be required to go through the same rigorous assessment process of their fitness to be parents as do people who adopt a child.

State Sen. Patricia Miller, R-Indianapolis, issued a one-sentence statement this afternoon saying: “The issue has become more complex than anticipated and will be withdrawn from consideration by the Health Finance Commission.”

What the freakin bleep is complex about it, Pat? The State has absolutely NO standing in deciding who can and cannot breed. Bloody fundamentalist patronizing Nanny Stater!

(I know, I know... bloody fundamentalist patronizing Nanny Stater is the best I could come up with, whaddya gonna do?)
