Rejected petition Allow Same Sex Couples To BOTH Be On The Child’s Birth Certificate

Me and my wife couldn’t afford IVF or NHS prices to conceive so we did artificial insemination at home via donor. We were NOT married at time of conception but got married during my wife’s pregnancy. We were told when our baby was born that I was not allowed to be on the birth certificate.

More details

Despite the fact that straight couples can both go on the birth certificate even when the father isn’t biological and they do not require being married at time of conception. I find this totally out of order and it should be the same across the board. I am calling out for people to bring this to the governments attention so I can go on our child’s birth certificate and many other LGBT families can receive the same treatment. Please help us get the signatures needed.
