That’s Just Wrong

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. 

Terry Lynn Weaver does not belong in office.

  1. Some of the most depraved people are in politics. Seriously, who sits around and comes up with these things?!? Are there not better and more pressing matters that they can focus on?
