Senator Jeff Sessions as Attorney General: What's WRONG with that IDEA?

A Proposed Tennessee Bill in State Houses Proposes Any Child Produced by Artificial Insemination to be Illegitimate

Different Kinds of Families

Tennessee’s Terri Lynn Weaver (R-Lancaster) of the House (HB 1406) and Joey Hensley (R-Hohenwald) of the Senate (SB 1153) propose bills seeking to label and classify all children born through (IUI) artificial insemination as illegitimate children. ART techniques include, donor eggs, donor sperm, surrogacy, and any procedure involving in vitro fertilization (IVF). Senator Hensley’s version would repeal TCA 68-3-306 declaring children born through AI/IUI “illegitimate”. There is no reason not to expect this to cover all ART procedures as well using any donor process (donor eggs, donor sperm).

Miracles and Memories (MAM) Pins

Miracles and Memories Family-Building Pins

 Established in August of 2002, MAM has the vision that is affected by infertility and/or pregnancy loss, or the heartbreak of a failed adoption should feel alone or loss of fertility should feel unsupported and no one, no matter how they elect to build their family, should be left out or belittled for their choices.

Miracles and Memories (MAM), is a worldwide, international movement designed to increase public awareness and support patient education and empowerment for infertility, pregnancy loss and adoption. By reaching out through the global community, sponsors, corporate partners and individuals, we hope to raise global awareness for those who continue to suffer predominately in silence, to a higher level of compassion and understanding by family, friends doctors, attorneys and anyone working inside or outside of the reproductive medicine field..
