Idiots in Politics: Proposed TN bill deems children born through artificial insemination illegitimate children

   For any couple who has decided to use in Vitro fertilization to have a child, Republicans in the
State of Tennessee now want to ensure that your child will be deemed "Illegitimate." Every week, conservative states in the U.S. come up with the most ridiculous Bills to try and make into law.
   Can't they come up with actual bills that will HELP people instead of stupidity that will hurt them?  -Their email addresses are below so you can tell them how stupid and hurtful this is!  

Here is the news from WMC-TV, a Memphis, Tennessee Television Station:
Proposed bill deems children born through artificial insemination illegitimate children

Fool#1 Representative Terri Lynn Weave

Channel 5 News:

 NASHVILLE, TN (WMC) -A proposed bill in the Tennessee General Assembly seeks to classify children born through artificial insemination as illegitimate children.

   Representative Terry Lynn Weaver (R-Lancaster) proposed HB 1406, which is intended to repeal the current statute regarding children born through artificial insemination.

    TCA 68-3-306 provides for the child to be considered the legitimate child of a husband and wife if the child is born through artificial insemination and with the consent of the husband.

    "A child born to a married woman as a result of artificial insemination, with consent of the married woman's husband, is deemed to be the legitimate child of the husband and wife." (TCA 68-3-306)

   However, the bill proposed by Weaver, with the Senate equivalent (SB 1153) proposed by Senator Joey Hensley (R-Hohenwald), would repeal that statute and label the child as illegitimate despite the couple being married and both consenting.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
