Arizona Supreme Court delivers a verdict in support of equal parental rights

Written by 

 

The Supreme Court of Arizona has taken a huge step in recognizing LGBT families.

Indeed, the Supreme Court of Arizona ruled that a couple of lesbian moms should have the same parental rights as straight parents in a divorce.

Kimberly and Suzan McLaughlin had a baby by insemination but then broke up. They had a custody agreement, but the second mother wanted to go further in sharing custody rights.

In Arizona, there is no law that allows a protection of parental rights for a same-sex parent in a married relationship that has used insemination.

The Arizona Supreme Court surprised everyone by taking sides for the non-biological lesbian mom.

Arizona Chief Justice Scott Bales explained that this decision was based on the US Supreme Court to legalize marriage equality.

"It would be inconsistent with Obergefell to conclude that same-sex couples can legally marry but states can then deny them the same benefits of marriage afforded opposite-sex couples," he wrote.
