    There is a lot of hoopla over what a President's qualifications should be, so I came up with a few examples of my own to see how far the right is willing to go in denying the winner of the Presidential election.

    How many of these people are qualified to be president?

    1.A test tube baby with a Canadian sperm & USA ova eggs for conception?
    2.A baby born on the space station to American parents.
    3.A test tube baby with American parents from a British laboratory, but born in America.
    4.A baby born of US parents on a cruise ship outside the ten mile limit in the ocean.
    5.An abandon child found on an American church steps, that could have foreign parents.
    6.A 20 year old man who has Chinese foreign organ transplants of heart, liver and kidneys.
    7.A baby from a Cesarean section that wasn't born natural.
    8.Jesus born by immaculate conception, not a natural birth.

    1.A test tube baby with a Canadian sperm & USA ova eggs for conception? If it's born an American soil, yes.
    2.A baby born on the space station to American parents. freaky long shot. But if it's born on the American part of it, there won't be any issue.
    3.A test tube baby with American parents from a British laboratory, but born in America.4.A baby born of US parents on a cruise ship outside the ten mile limit in the ocean. Kid could be screwed. It would depend on the flag flying out the back.
    5.An abandon child found on an American church steps, that could have foreign parents. It would have an American proof of life, making it an American.
    6.A 20 year old man who has Chinese foreign organ transplants of heart, liver and kidneys. If he was born here he has an American B cert.
    7.A baby from a Cesarean section that wasn't born natural.
    8.Jesus born by immaculate conception, not a natural birth. Jesus was born in Isreal, so he can't be President

    but truly anyone can become an American, only the President and VP have to be born here.

    For a strict constitutional interpretation I have to agree.
    A c-section birth is not a natural birth.

    All except Jesus would be U.S. Citizens but not Natural Born Citizens. See, to be Senator, the constitutional requirement is that you have to be a U.S. Citizen. For President, Article 2 Section 1 of the Constitution requires you to be a Natural Born Citizen. All of those baby's mentioned could one day be a senator but not president. The only exception would be the baby born on the space station to two us citizen parents.
