Same Sex Parents Score Major Supreme Court Victory

Indiana will be required to recognize both wives in same-sex unions as parents of the children after the Supreme Court denied a petition to appeal the lower court decision.

“It’s a major victory that is going to keep the same-sex families together and the children born to these marriages will have two parents to love and protect them,” Karen Celestino-Horseman, the attorney for the plaintiffs, told The Indianapolis Star.

Ashlee and Ruby Henderson, a same-sex couple from Lafayette, Ind., are those two parents for their child, conceived through artificial insemination. After county officials refused to list both of them as parents on the birth certificate, the Hendersons and several other couples won both the initial lawsuit, granting a permanent injunction enforcing the decision, as well as an appeal to the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit.
