Nothing is Real...Insemination Rules Will Be Eased

     A front-page article in today's Davis Enterprise via the San Francisco Chronicle celebrates a new law that takes effect here in California on Tuesday:
     "That’s when a new law will take effect, making fertility services more accessible for Californians seeking to start a family through nontraditional means. Among those it will help are same-sex female couples, low-income women and single women.
     “It removes a lot of barriers so women can become pregnant using the sperm of the donor of their choice,” said Assemblywoman Nancy Skinner, D-Berkeley, who introduced the legislation. It was co-sponsored by Equality California and the National Center for Lesbian Rights.
     "The current law is designed to protect women without a traditional male partner from unknowingly ending up with a sexually transmitted disease by using, for example, a friend’s sperm and a turkey baster."
     Yet the 'couple' interviewed find this current law, that aims to give them at least some minimal common sense protection, to be "too costly and time-consuming."
     No, I'm not making this up--read it here!

 Let me take you down 
 ‘Cause I'm going to Strawberry Fields 
 Nothing is real  
And nothing to get hung about  
Strawberry Fields forever
Always, no sometimes, think it's me 
But you know I know when it's a dream  
I think I know I mean a yes 
But it's all wrong 
That is I think I disagree...
