A California bill allowing children to have three legal parents will not help children, but instead will unnecessarily complicate their lives. The supposed need for California's SB 1476 flowed directly from the drive to normalize same sex parenting and recognize same sex unions.

Can a child have three parents? If California State Senator Mark Leno has his way, children in California will be able to have three legal parents. Before we dismiss SB 1476 as another example of California Weird, we had best look into it more closely.

A deeper look at the whole picture surrounding SB 1476 reveals that not only should the three-parent law fail, same-sex "marriage" should fail as well.
