New Pennsylvania Law Allows Birth Certificates for Stillborns
Quote :"I want people to realize that he was a part of our family. You can't take that nine months and erase it," Kauffman said.
Finding out that Kail's birth wasn't recognized by the state, Kauffman said, was "like a slap in the face." "I just couldn't accept that. He weighed 7 pounds, 10 ounces, and he was beautiful," Kauffman said.
On Sept. 5, 2011, Pennsylvania will become the 31st state to offer the certificate upon request. For Kauffman and her husband Johann, the passing of the law is bittersweet.
I already have issues with the gov't making laws based on individuals demands.... I.E all those laws on the books named after someone..
But this is just ridiculous.... you get a birth certificate just for being pregnant...
This is just more attempts to erode Roe vs. Wade.... hey if being pregnant = a birth certificate... does that mean getting rid of a pregnancy = murder.....
