Adjustments to Birth Certificates for Same-Sex Parents

In North Carolina, changes are being made to accommodate same-sex families welcoming newborns. The Asheville Citizen -Times reports that there was a need to update the language on birth certificates identifying the parents of children. Previously, the North Carolina Vital Records would issue paperwork indicating that there was one mother, and one father. The Department of Health and Human Services says that now there will be an option for Parent/Parent.

This update will now give lesbian couples the same rights as gay men who use a surrogate to have a child. Now non-biological parents of both sexes may be listed.
