Ryan MacPherson writes at the Minneapolis Star-Tribune:
As the cliché would have it, "You can’t legislate morality." But some Minnesota lawmakers think they can legislate biology instead.
The interaction of two bills introduced in the Legislature this session defies the facts of Biology 101.
The Legislature’s proposed allowance for up to six adults to claim biological parentage of the same child takes the marriage debate to a new level.
No longer will people be asking whether every child has the right to a mom and a dad -- or whether same-sex couples can raise children just as well as opposite-sex couples.
Now a child can have up to six persons whom the law will recognize as "presumptive biological parents."
