Florida balks about allowing both partners in a lesbian marriage to be named as parents on a birth certificate
A lesbian couple has sued the state of Florida over the right to have the names of both partners on a baby’s birth certificate, ABC News and the Associated Press have a story by Tamara Lush here.
The couple, Cathy Pareto and Karla Arguello, was the first to be legally married in Florida.
Pareto gave birth to twins. The couple points out that a heterosexual couple using surrogacy because of fertility problems would be allowed to list the intended parents on the birth certificate.
