Nationwide, disputes are raging about what the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to impose its redefinition of marriage on all 50 states now means for designations of parenthood, which prior to its opinion, rested on a paradigm that recognized children as the biological creation of a male (i.e. “father”) and female (i.e. “mother”).

And by “they” Doty means Sea. Although, Doty can’t yet...
Lawmakers Avoid Discussions of First Principles
By Laurie Higgins   |   06.30.17
