Unauthorized Reproduction bill

I seriously thought this was satire.
Republican lawmakers are drafting new legislation that will make
marriage a requirement for motherhood in the state of Indiana,
including specific criminal penalties for unmarried women who do
become pregnant "by means other than sexual intercourse."

Apparently the legislation has been dropped by Senator Miller. Her simple statement was, "The issue has become more complex than anticipated and will be withdrawn from consideration by the Health Finance Commission."
