Reproductive Technology Bar 

Yikes. A proposed bill in the Indiana General Assembly would outright bar lesbians (and any women who can't prove their participation in church or faith-based activities, amont other requirements) from accessing reproductive technology, such as artificial insemination. This isn't a question of state funding - this would completely deny lesbians access to certain medical services.

I haven't found the full text of the bill, but check out some of the reported details here.

UPDATE (10/5/05): Here's the link to HFC004.

UPDATE (10/6/05): "The issue has become more complex than anticipated and will be withdrawn from consideration by the Health Finance Commission," she said.
