When I was first asked to write this piece about donor sperm insemination and to discuss whether or not inseminations should be done at home or at a medical clinic, my initial reaction was “definitely at a medical clinic” for the best possible legal protection.

Attorney Victoria Ferrara wrote a piece that she immediately shared on her own website concerning the Supreme Court Decision regarding marriage equality. With her permission, (Attorney Ferrara is a Legal Notable Contributor for GayParentstoBe), we are sharing her blog here. The actual words of the decision that she quoted here may actually bring tears to your eyes. They certainly did for so many of us across the nation. Attorney Ferrara ties the issues together in a concise and direct way, answering many questions that are rumbling around out there about why and if it was proper that the U.S. Supreme Court took this question on at all. Attorney Ferrara puts this landmark decision into proper perspective and helps us see that yes, it’s time to celebrate.

I am looking forward to our event at The Triangle Community Center this Saturday! I have so many good memories of the Center from over the years and mostly with respect to giving presentations to gay couples and individuals who want to have children.
