    Garbage IN, Garbage OUT

    Computer geeks used to have a saying.. Garbage In, Garbage Out.

    It means that no matter how well one writes a computer system, if the
    information fed into it is wrong, the information coming out of it will be

    If something as basic as a Birth Certificate starts out wrong, then we're
    talking about a lifetime of wrong information.

    mothers stated on a poor child's Birth Certificate.

    Nope, it wasn't an input error. Apparently political will trumps biological

    We probably can not call these things simply Birth Certificates anymore.
    Perhaps "Birth Information as understood by the Courts at a particular time in

    MOUNT LAUREL, N.J. — Two women will be listed as parents on the birth certificate of a baby born this week in New Jersey, one of the first implications of a state Supreme Court ruling that gives same-sex couples access to the same rights as married couples.

    Under state law, the husband of a woman who gives birth through artificial insemination is listed on the birth certificate as the father. No such provision is made for lesbian couples, who often go through lengthy and costly adoptions to give both women equal rights as parents.

    Ha, lengthy and costly adoptions, and rightly so. There are many rules to
    bend, natural and man made, to get to such a illogical conclusion, and many
    lawyers to pay along the way to state things "just so".
