#HB900 must pass without amendments out of the #TexasSenate and go to the Governor's desk. The senators have the responsibility to get this bill to the governor AS-IS!!! Call Dan Patrick and tell him TX Parents need this bill passed w/o amendments (512) 463-0001
Please let your senator and @DanPatrick @LtGovTX know that #SB13 codifies awful TASB and ALA policy into must die...and not be added to #HB900 in any manner. We do not want #HB900 to be killed in the House. It will be on @DanPatrick and the Senate this bill fails.
The #TxSenate can pass #HB900 out of the Senate as is with no amendments and get it signed by the Governor. No games. No blaming the House when the Senate adds bad amendments.

#ThemBeforeUs is drafting a #SCOTUS brief addressing who can be listed as a parent on a child’s birth certificate.

If your birth certificate did not reflect your biological parents, I’d like to hear from you! #Adoption #DonorConception
Our SCOTUS brief will address three key points:
- Birth certificates serve children, not adults
- Children have a right to an accurate birth certificate, regardless of whether they are donor conceived or subsequently adopted
- Biology matters to children

4 ways commercial #surrogacy violates the rights and well-being of children.
1. Commodification
2. Intentionally broken families
3. Motherlessness
4. Mental and emotional trauma

"Best practice in adoption makes every effort to keep the child w her birth parents, then carefully screens intended parents. Surrogacy inverts that- it intentionally separates children from their birth mother & conducts no vetting of intended parents."
“Unlike adoption, which functions as an institution to protect children’s needs, commercial surrogacy functions as a market to meet the desires of adults.”
