Biology vs. politics

A pro-family advocate says California lawmakers are trying to redefine biology with newly signed legislation that allows homosexual couples in the state to receive insurance coverage for infertility.

Same-sex couples in The Golden State can now receive insurance coverage for infertility treatments. Governor Jerry Brown (D) has signed AB 460 into law, and it will take effect on January 1, mandating insurance companies to provide for infertility procedures like artificial insemination or surrogacy for same-sex couples.

LaBarbera, PeterPeter LaBarbera of Americans For Truth about Homosexuality (AFTAH) tells OneNewsNow, "This is about biology."

"Biologically, homosexuals cannot produce children, so politics cannot trump biology," he reasons. "The sad part is we do have kids being placed in homes which are intentionally motherless or intentionally fatherless ... but to force insurance companies to provide infertility treatment benefits to homosexual couples is the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard."

The current standard for infertility under California law defines it as either a demonstrated condition or a year of intercourse without conception. The standard also includes non-heterosexual couples.

AB 460 could potentially mean that every homosexual couple that has sexual relations for one year will qualify for insurance coverage.
