The Crime of "Unauthorized Reproduction"

New law will require marriage as a legal condition of motherhood



By Laura McPhee

"Republican lawmakers are drafting new legislation that will make
marriage a requirement for motherhood in the state of Indiana,
including specific criminal penalties for unmarried women who do
become pregnant "by means other than sexual intercourse."

According to a draft of the recommended change in state law, every
woman in Indiana seeking to become a mother throu gh assisted
reproduction therapy such as in vitro fertilization, sperm donation,
and egg donation, must first file for a "petition for parentage" in
their local county probate court. "


A draft of the legislation is available on the Health Finance
Commission website
