A reminder is worthwhile now and then that we’ve reached the point at which we need court rulings on things like this:
Children’s birth certificates must be linked to biological parentage, the Arkansas Supreme Court has said in a ruling that involved the federal redefinition of marriage to recognize same-sex unions.
“It does not violate equal protection to acknowledge basic biological truths,” Arkansas Supreme Court Associate Judge Jo Hart wrote in the Dec. 8 decision.
Let’s just say that I’m not optimistic about the prospects for a nation that won’t acknowledge the truth or importance of biological parenthood. Hopefully reasonable judges will hold the line until the rest of us come to our senses.
