|TRNT||would such certificate entitle the parents to an extra personal tax deduction?|

|Dumpsterdiver||Odd. Most of the certificates I've seen state "certificate of live birth". I don't see how anyone could sign that for a stillborn.|

My son was born still on September 5, 2012. He was BORN via natural child BIRTH, and therefore deserves a BIRTH certificate. I don't care if the certificate states he was stillborn, but it should be issued because unless there is life, there is no death. His heart was beating 12 hours before he was born but becaus of the unexplained preterm premature rupture of membranes at 20 weeks 1 day gestation, he was BORN at 20 weeks 5 days gestation with undeveloped lung capacity. Hospitals wll not issue a birth certificate in PA because hospital issued certificates are LIVE birth certificates. PA did pass the agel law signed by governor Corbett to issue birth certificates to parents of a still born child that spoecifically state th child was still born and i the baby as born post 16 weeks gestation. FYI in the state of PA, if your child is born before 16 weeks gestation, te baby is not eligible for the birth certificates for stillborns. AND for those that do qualify for the certificates, parents need to request a certified copy of the death certificate that provides poof that the infant was stillborn to request a stillbirth certificate.
Please educate yourselves before having a "disagreement of opinion" in an open forum. And, having had to walk in these shoes, how dare anyone judge a grieving parent if you have not walked in their shoes. Acknowledgement that these parents were in the pain of labor, be it C-secton or labor, and their child was born is what a BIRTH certificate should state... that a child was born via child BIRTH. Whether the lived through the birthing process should be irrelevant.
For those grieving like me and with me, I pray we find solace in togetherness. May God lend His hand in our healing.

Some other names being used are Certificate of Stillbirth, Commemorative Certificate of Stillbirth, and Stillbirth Certificate.
The Stillbirth certificate is optional, with data from the Fetal Death Certificate being used to complete it. Both share the same certificate number.
It does look to be a separate certificate.
A search brings up no shortage of other states employing the new practice.

I know that you have no interest in answering the question, because you hold democrats and republicans to two different standards. People notice buddy....
Don't bother asking me questions in the future because I'll just return the favor of silence.

I looked it up and it looks like PA will issue a 'certificate of birth resulting in death'. I'm still wondering if any other states actually issue a birth certificate that is separate from a death certificate.

Thanks.... I would just appreciate it if he could answer the question. Unless you're a hardened party ideologue, we all know most of the democrats did not read a 2,000+ page bill that would effect every American for the rest of their life if passed.

if you have time to write that, you have time to tell me how many democrats who voted for Obamacare actually read the 2,000+ pages...

Not Everyone wants Money from the government for their child. My Son Tyler RJ was born still on 4/21/2011 at 36 weeks and you know what I got a death certificate and I don't see how the have no problem telling me my son dead but could even give me a birth certificate. Your telling me that if you had a child who was born still that you would be ok with people not acknowledging your child. It broke my heart when they told me I couldn't have a birth certificate cause my son never breathed so he didn't live. Get the he'll out of here you need to be alive in order to die and if your heart is beating than you are alive be stay alive on machines that breath for them an they are still consider alive. Whether a child breathes or not they are alive and think you all should go what I have been through and then tell me I don't deserve a birth certificate. M son has rights to be acknowledged and I don't care what any one says he will be thanks to the new law passed here in pa. I don't want money from anyone just some god damn respect I earned it!!

I'm just thinking about the tax implications(on which I don't really have an opinion either way). I wonder if the birth certificate will allow parents to obtain a social security number so that they can claim the stillborn baby as a dependent, collect child tax credit, etc. In my state we have a stillborn credit on income taxes and I would assume that a birth certificate would not allow someone to take that particular credit.
The article says that Pennsylvania is joining 31 other states in issuing birth certificates which is not really accurate. Thirty one other states do not all offer certificates of live birth for stillborns. They have varying laws from issuing certificates of stillbirth to offering a tax exemption or tax credit on state income taxes.
