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).

Sara's Story: "Why don't you just adopt?"

Mother, father and newborn baby

When I heard couples discussing their attempts at pregnancy and IVF, I said, with contempt in my voice,, “Why don’t you just adopt.”  Yes, I was one of “those people”.

I was adopted, and it worked out fine for my parents and me. I believed that people choosing IVF were self-centered and arrogant about the necessity to pass on their genes to offspring. I admit I took the attempts to create a family through treatment personally—as if people who choose IVF were somehow disparaging or devaluing my non-biological relationship to my parents and sister.

An Update from Kaitlin and Scott's IVF Scholarship Experience

Twins

In late 2013, after many months of treatments and medications, my husband and I were blessed with the gift of a positive pregnancy test.  The coming weeks, blessed us with news of a boy/girl twins pregnancy. This blessed event was a dream-come-true. 

Our pregnancy was smooth as we went through testing, ultrasounds, and OBGYN appointments.  However, at 23 weeks everything changed.  What was once our greatest gift turned into the most difficult event of our lives. The day after we became parents to Nora and Hendrik they passed quietly away in our arms.  They lived only 37 short hours. The heartbreak was unbearable.
