District of Columbia adopts The Domestic Partnership Judicial Determination Parentage Act of 2009

07/23/09 Washington Post (source: ADF Alliance Alert):
"A mother [who uses artificial insemination] should not have to adopt her own child," said [American University law professor Nancy] Polikoff, who helped draft the legislation ... "When a heterosexual married couple uses artificial insemination to have a child, the husband does not have to adopt the child born to his wife. He is the child's legal parent automatically. Now the child of a lesbian couple will have the same economic and emotional security accorded the children of heterosexual married couples who use artificial insemination."
