At least you and I can. This is about the stupidest thing I ever heard of in my life.
For starters, as the article states: (emphasis mine)
Current California law requires group health plans to offer coverage for infertility treatments with the exception of in vitro fertilization (IVF). If such coverage is purchased, benefits must be paid whenever “a demonstrated condition recognized by a licensed physician and surgeon as a cause for infertility” has been diagnosed—or upon “the inability to conceive a pregnancy or to carry a pregnancy to a live birth after a year of regular sexual relations without contraception.”
HELLO! What gay or lesbian couple WOULD be having “REGULAR SEXUAL RELATIONS” - for an entire year in the first place? They don’t *want *regular sexual relations, or they’d be with somebody of the opposite sex from the get go.
Of course it hasn’t crossed anybody’s numb skull that they might just lie about something like that, now would they.
You’re right, Brennus, this is too stupid to be even contemplating, much less talking about, but we have to because we actually have representatives in government considering such ludicracy.
And for the love of pete, since when is conceiving, and having, a baby a RIGHT?
