Married Lesbian Breeders Get Birth Certificate Rights

Chuck Schumer's approval isn't the only good news this week for married same-sex couples in New York: the Department of Health has decreed that betrothed lesbians who have a child by whatever means will be listed as parents on the birth certificate without going through an adoption process, as was previously the case. Male couples don't get the same break. Gender prejudice much? Well, it's a start, and may take a little sting out of the Vermont Governor's announcement that he'll veto the marriage equality bill passed by the state senate if it gets to his desk.
