“What Hath God Wrought?”

.
The Old Testament is adamantly against the homosexual and gay lifestyle. The New Testament demands a person love their neighbor as themselves. Christ said, “I come not to change the Law, but to fulfill The Law.”

In that case, what do we do with this information?

California adds same-sex couple fertility mandate

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Unmarried and same-sex couples will be ensured the same access to insurance coverage for fertility treatments as heterosexual couples under a bill Calif. Gov. Jerry Brown announced signing Tuesday.

The legislation, Assembly Bill 460, clarifies the non-discrimination provision of an existing state law that requires health plans to offer coverage for fertility treatments, except for in vitro fertilization.

Despite the existing law, Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, D-San Francisco, said many same-sex couples have been denied the coverage. In praising Brown’s signature on his bill, Ammiano said reproductive medicine should be for the benefit of everyone.

“To restrict fertility coverage solely to heterosexual married couples violates California’s non-discrimination laws,” he said in a statement. “I wrote this bill to correct that.”

Neither Ammiano’s office nor advocacy groups that supported the bill could say how many same-sex couples might be denied coverage in a given year in California but said it’s a common complaint. Even without in vitro fertilization, fertility treatments are expensive, costing hundreds or thousands of dollars per cycle.

Under state law, insurance companies are required to offer at least some plans that provide coverage for those treatments. Ammiano’s bill makes it clear that everyone who purchases such a plan, either individually or through group insurance, is entitled to that benefit.

Ammiano spokesman Carlos Alcala said the assemblyman carried the bill because he knows people who had difficulty getting coverage.

The California Association of Health Plans, which represents insurers, says its initial concerns with the legislation were addressed and it took no position on the final version.

“I think that the plans will move forward and implement the law,” association spokeswoman Nicole Evans said.

One complication facing same-sex couples is that insurance coverage for fertility treatments typically does not kick in until couples have tried to conceive naturally for 12 months. That’s not possible for same-sex couples, who might face treatments costing tens of thousands of dollars out of pocket before coverage would apply, said Judy Appel, executive director of Our Family Coalition, a San Francisco-based group that advocates for same-sex couples and supported Ammiano’s bill.

The new law, which takes effect in January, states that insurance plans offering coverage for fertility treatments cannot discriminate on any basis, including “domestic partner status, gender, gender expression, gender identity, genetic information, marital status … sex or sexual orientation.”

Appel said the governor’s signing of the bill lifts a huge emotional and financial barrier to same-sex couples seeking to start a family.

“We have the right to marry now and this is further support for us to be able to create families,” she said.

I am so far beyond bewildered, I feel like a space cadet~!

This is not the manner in which G-D created man and woman, according to the first two chapters of Genesis.

I don’t choose to get into religion, nor a religious argument of any kind. Every person has the right to their own belief, belief system and lifestyle. But had The Supreme Creator wanted us to reproduce like the amoebae, wouldn’t S/He have given us the ability to reproduce by fission, as the amoebae??? 

State Law requires these processes be offered in some plans.  And I cannot get full coverage, or worthwhile coverage, under my insurance for hearing aids or glasses, without costing me an arm and a leg, figuratively speaking~!

Astounding, what TWO PERCENT of the population can demand, and receive.

    Grouchy, I’m scratching my head over this one. In a gay marriage, which dude will be the wife to carry the kid after the invitro transplant? 0bviously, moonbeam didn’t think about that when he signed the bill.

    • It does make one wonder how fast, how far, and how furiously one can descend into that which is unreal. My Fox,,, there are a million unspoken and unanswered questions. The PRIME one is, “Where to begin the asking~!~?”

      I’m in full agreement with you on this one~! God Help California,,, Preferably from LA to the Cascadia Fault~!

    • Clyde says:

      myfox, they can shove it up one of their asses, next to the gerbil, and have a little turd.

  2. Kathy says:

    Even more astounding than what the 2% demand, is how government, state and federal, bend over backwards to accommodate them.

    The lesbos will like this just fine, but the guys are going to scream unfair. No birth canal.

    • Shades of “Two Men and a Baby” ??? Oh, Lord. I never watched that show,,, and don’t care to start now. Just the TITLE threw me off.

      The men don’t even have the basket, let alone the Hose Tubing~!

      Thanks for the humor, Kathy~!

      • Kathy says:

        It was a cute movie, Grouchy – not what you think, and there were three of them. If it had been about ‘that’ I wouldn’t have watched it – I change the channel when that hits the screen, no matter the show.

    • myfoxmystere says:

      Kathy, great point, which is why I asked which dude plays the wife? He’ll need special plastic surgery to carry a child in his you know what.

  3. bullright says:

    Yes , good commentary. And the prices for everyone else will reflect it. But to them and liberals, there is never any cost to anything. Just create a mandate and voila it shall become reality at no cost. (even against proof otherwise.)

    If one extrapolates what we can expect 20 years from now, based on what has passed for creative thinking in the past twenty, some loons will be wanting to marry their wheelbarrows or claw hammers. Oh, I almost forgot, and have their “union” be covered under Obamacare for trans-human treatments.

    How absolutely stupid are some homo sapiens?

  5. Clyde says:

    We have a similar effort underway here in Michigan. The voters OVERWHELMINGLY passed a ballot initiative to BAN gay marriage, but as the militant homo community is wont to do, they’ve found a sympathetic judge to hear their case. If the queers want “marriage” so bad, START THEIR OWN goddamn state, and have at it. I’m weary of these initiatives being overturned by activist judges.

    • Hardnox says:

      I don’t understand why a judicial impeachment movement doesn’t start in every state where judges legislate from the bench. Once this becomes commonplace then maybe the judges will stop this activity.

  6. Hardnox says:

    This whole thing is simply absurd on its face, and in an adult world deserves to be treated as such. I know that is a panacea in today’s politics. California is the posterchild of what is wrong in today’s political landscape.

  7. Buck says:

    Stupidity abounds. On both sides of the spectrum. The 2% raise a ruckus and the politicians and judges cave. The politicians are stupid because they ignore the 98% and the voters are stupid because they don’t throw the bums out. The judges are giving excellent examples of a reason for time limits for sitting on the bench.

    But nothing is done. Again.

    I don’t put a lot of stock in what people say who flunked first grade biology.
