Indiana AG: LGBT Parents should be stripped of Rights

Postby San Lumen » Wed Nov 25, 2020 3:14 pm

https://www.indystar.com/story/news/202 ... 422495002/

Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill has submitted a brief to the U.S. Supreme Court arguing that the country's highest tribunal should reverse a lower court decision from earlier this year that allowed same-sex couples in Indiana the right to both be listed as parents on the birth certificate of their children.

The case involves a lesbian couple whom conceived a child via artificial insemination.

I find this very troubling and hope the Supreme Court does not take up this case nor overturn the ruling. LGBT people have a right to be parents and there is absolutely no reason they should not be.

Your Thoughts NSG?

What makes it shocking? Indiana is a very conservative state. I would have thought this issue would be settled.

Hopefully they reject the case or decide not to overturn it.

Why not get congress to pass an actual bill about the matter.

If the state put the sperm donor as a parent on an infertile heterosexual couples child's birth certificate, I would be ok with it for a gay couple as well. As it is just for a lesbian couple, I find it discrimatory.

Because that would totally happen when McConnell strangled any bill he didn't like in the crib.

That is a problem, the courts should not be legislating. The older I get the more I prefer civil law to common law.

At least he's been voted out in favor for Todd Rokita. Hill is an...interesting fellow
I'm actually wondering how he managed to become my state's AG...

Whereas I have faith in SCOTUS to handle political matters fairly, sadly I think these sorts of things will run afoul of a conservative SCOTUS looking to strip away such 'sinful' rights.

I don’t think Gorsch or Roberts will open this door.

Pavan v. Smith, 582 U.S. ___ (2017). Cert denied.

In his petition to the U.S. Supreme Court, Hill argues that upholding the lower court's decision would violate common sense and throw into jeopardy parental rights based on biology.

"The consequence of four years without consequences...will be a spreading of anti-democratic, illiberal, and purposively small, petty, performative shabbiness that will always seem, in the moment, too silly to matter, and that will continue to be, going forward, too important to ignore."
