goddammit indiana youre making me look bad

so indiana wants to pass a law saying if you are using fertility methods other than getting it on "the way God intended", you better be married first or be charged with a crime.

its offessive on multiple levels.  ultimately its taking away the ability of the woman in question to decide what to do with her body.

one - its attack on single mothers who are easy prey for CPS and other agencies anyway.  just as "lacy's law" is a backdoor for fetal personhood, this law is a backdoor to criminalising single mothers - regardless of the method used.

two - there is a segment of the population that usually relys on surrogacy and other fertility treatments that IS NOT "ALLOWED" TO GET MARRIED.
