California Supreme Court on Lesbian Parents 

At the recent ACS National Convention, I attended two breakout sessions on GLBT issues involving marriage and parenting. One was a student discussion group, and the other was a panel (video of the panel here). Both were lively and well-attended.

Yesterday the California Supreme Court issued decisions in three cases involving parental rights and responsibilities after the breakup of lesbian couples who jointly decide to conceive and raise children. The court declared that lesbian couples have the same ongoing rights and responsibilities as heterosexual couples who utilize reproductive technology, whether or not they have registered under California's domestic partnership registry.
