    A couple of weeks ago, I started a thread on the personhood bill and what kind of effect it would have on American citizens who got invitro fertilization outside of the US, and what kind of problems a person might encounter.

    Guess what................it's happened for real........................

    Born to American mom, in-vitro twins denied citizenship - TODAY News - TODAY.com

    It seems that if she had been married to the donor, and it had been her egg, she could have been considered a US citizen born abroad of US parents, but because the egg and sperm were donated by foreign citizens, even though she carried the child to term in HER body, unless she files for adoption status, her children have no country.

    Discuss...............

    Why is she living in Israel? Why would she have in vitro with no husband? If she loves the U.S. So much, why isn't she here? Sounds to me that she wants it all. She should have had her "American children" in America with an American father. Ignorance of the law is no defense.
    I think it's a good law.

    Children are born to idiot parents every minute of every day.

    The thing that morons don't understand is that just because you're stupid doesn't mean that somebody is going to give you a break.... oh wait a minute... damn... that's what liberals do. I guess that's why so many democrats live in slums and trailer parks, don't work, don't have any money, have arrest warrants out for them, are illegal aliens, vote illegally, and the list is endless. The dregs of society is made up of people that refer to themselves as "liberal, progressives, socialists, democrats and communists." America's trash.

    What do you mean "have no country"? Wouldn't they be Israeli citizens?

    Options. Choices. And consequences.

    No sympathy.

    Sorta sounds like you've got a beef with American women who give birth abroad.

    Her children are Israeli. The over dramatic 'children without a country' is just a sad attempt to heartstring people.

    In vitro happened in Israel, and they were born here in the US.
